Andrzej Jakubowiak, MD, PhD, professor of medicine, director, Myeloma Program, University of Chicago Medicine, discusses the toxicity profile of panobinostat in combination with bortezomib and dexamethasone in relapsed or relapsed/refractory multiple myeloma as seen in the PANORAMA trial.
- In the PANORAMA trial, there was a higher proportion of GI toxicities in the panobinistat arm compared to the placebo arm.
- A higher rate of thrombocytopenia and other hematological toxicities were also seen in the panobinostat arm.
- However, all of the toxicities were mostly manageable and did not impact the outcome of the trial.
- More details are needed to get a better understanding of the toxicity profile of this combination in this setting.
