First results from MUK six presented at ASH 2014
Initial data from MUK six, the second trial from the Myeloma UK Clinical Trial Network to have completed recruitment, were presented at the ASH 2014 Annual Meeting in San Francisco.
MUK six is a multi-centre Phase I/IIa trial evaluating panobinostat in combination with Velcade, thalidomide and dexamethasone (VTD-P) followed by panobinostat maintenance in relapsed and/or refractory myeloma patients.
Presented in poster format, Principal Investigator, Dr Rakesh Popat, University College Hospital, London reported that the recommended dose of panobinostat was established at 20mg and the combination of VTD-P was safe and well tolerated. In an intent-to-treat analysis, 15 out of 24 patients receiving the recommended dose of 20mg had achieved at least a partial response.
Chief Executive of Myeloma UK, Eric Low said, “We are delighted to have been given the opportunity to present the results of MUK six at ASH. As these are still early data, we look forward to learning more about the outcomes of the trial in due course.”
