Belinostat is a novel hydroxamic acid-type histone deacetylase (HDAC) inhibitor with antineoplastic activity. Belinostat targets HDAC enzymes, thereby inhibiting tumor cell proliferation, inducing apoptosis, promoting cellular differentiation, and inhibiting angiogenesis. This agent may sensitize drug-resistant tumor cells to other antineoplastic agents, possibly through a mechanism involving the down-regulation of thymidylate synthase. Belinostat was approved in 2014 for relapsed or refractory peripheral T-cell lymphoma.

How to use
Belinostat (PXD101) induces a concentration-dependent (0.2-5 μM) increase in acetylation of histone H4 in tumor cell lines. Belinostat is cytotoxic in vitro in a number of tumor cell lines with IC50s in the range 0.2-3.4 μM as determined by a clonogenic assay and induces apoptosis. Belinostat inhibits the growth of a number of human tumor cell lines in vitro with IC50s determined by a clonogenic assay in the range 0.2-3.4 μM. Belinostat (PXD101) is a potent histone deacetylase (HDAC) inhibitor, potently inhibits the enzymatic activity of purified recombinant HDAC6 (IC50 of 82 nM).
Treatment of nude mice bearing human ovarian and colon tumor xenografts with Belinostat (10-40 mg/kg/day i.p.) daily for 7 days causes a significant dose-dependent growth delay with no obvious signs of toxicity to the mice. Growth delay is also observed for xenografts of cisplatin-resistant ovarian tumor cells. A marked increase in acetylation of H4 is detected in blood and tumor of mice 3 h after treatment with Belinostat (PXD101). The inhibition of growth of human tumor xenografts in mice, with no apparent toxicity. Belinostat (PXD101) displays single-agent antitumor activity on human A2780 ovarian cancer s.c. xenografts which is enhanced via combination therapy with Carboplatin.
