Histone deacetylase (HDAC) enzymatic activity has been linked to the transcription of DNA in cancers including multiple myeloma (MM). Therefore, HDAC inhibitors used alone and in combination are being actively studied as novel therapies in MM. In the present study, we investigated the preclinical activity of ACY-1215, an HDAC6-selective inhibitor, alone and(More)
Small-molecule multi-targeted cyclin-dependent kinase (CDK) inhibitors (CDKIs) are of particular interest due to their potent antitumor activity independent of p53 gene alterations. P53 deletion is associated with a very poor prognosis in multiple myeloma (MM). In this regard, we tested the anti-MM activity of RGB-286638, an indenopyrazole-derived CDKI with(More)
Sclerostin is a potent inhibitor of osteoblastogenesis. Interestingly, newly diagnosed multiple myeloma (MM) patients have high levels of circulating sclerostin that correlate with disease stage and fractures. However, the source and impact of sclerostin in MM remains to be defined. Our goal was to determine the role of sclerostin in the biology of MM and(More)
Despite promising preclinical results with mTOR kinase inhibitors in multiple myeloma, resistance to these drugs may arise via feedback activation loops. This concern is especially true for insulin-like growth factor 1 receptor (IGF1R), because IGF1R signaling is downregulated by multiple AKT and mTOR feedback mechanisms. We have tested this hypothesis in(More)
