Belinostat is a pan-histone deacetylase inhibitor with antitumour and anti-angiogenic properties. An open label, multicentre study was conducted in patients with peripheral T-cell lymphoma (PTCL) or cutaneous T-cell lymphoma (CTCL) who failed =1 prior systemic therapy and were treated with belinostat (1000 mg/m(2) intravenously ×5 d of a 21-d cycle). The primary endpoint was objective response rate (ORR). Patients with PTCL (n = 24) had received a median of three prior systemic therapies (range 1-9) and 40% had stage IV disease. Patients with CTCL (n = 29) had received a median of one prior skin-directed therapy (range 0-4) and four prior systemic therapies (range 1-9); 55% had stage IV disease. The ORRs were 25% (PTCL) and 14% (CTCL). Treatment-related adverse events occurred in 77% of patients; nausea (43%), vomiting (21%), infusion site pain (13%) and dizziness (11%) had the highest incidence. Treatment-related serious adverse events were Grade 5 ventricular fibrillation; Grade 4 thrombocytopenia; Grade 3 peripheral oedema, apraxia, paralytic ileus and pneumonitis; and Grade 2 jugular vein thrombosis. Belinostat monotherapy was well tolerated and efficacious in patients with recurrent/refractory PTCL and CTCL. This trial was registered at www.clinicaltrials.gov as NCT00274651.
