How to use

In Vitro:

Dacinostat (NVP-LAQ824) activates p21 promoter, with AC50 of 0.30 μM. NVP-LAQ824 inhibits tumor cell (H1299, HCT116) growth, with IC50s of 150 and 10 nM, respectively. NVP-LAQ824 also shows inhibitory activities against two prostate cancer cell lines (DU145 and PC3) and a breast cancer line (MDA435), with IC50s of 18, 23, 39 nM, respectively. Continuous exposure of NVP-LAQ824 for 72 h produces LD90s of 0.09 M in HCT116 cells and 0.47 M in A549 cells. NVP-LAQ824 treatment of NDHF cells causes the expected G1-S growth arrest in addition to a significant reduction of cells in S-phase and accumulation of cells at the G2-M checkpoint. NVP-LAQ824 induces apoptotic death in human tumor cells. NPV-LAQ824 increases acetylation of histones H3 and H4. Dacinostat inhibits HDAC1 with an IC50 of 9 nM. Dacinostat (10 and 20 nM) suppresses proliferation of AML fusion protein-expressing 32D cells. Dacinostat impairs short-term engraftment potential of leukemic stem cells. Dacinostat exhausts in vitro self-renewal potential of murine AML1/ETO- and PLZF/RARα-positive HSC.

In Vivo:

NVP-LAQ824 produces a dose-dependent inhibition of tumor growth, and at 100 mg/kg, its antitumor effect is similar to that of 5-Fluorouracil.
