In this article, we will discuss Panobinostat (Dosage Overview). So, let’s get started.
Panobinostat, a histone deacetylase inhibitor, in combination with bortezomib and dexamethasone, is indicated for the treatment of patients with multiple myeloma who have received at least 2 prior regimens, including bortezomib and an immunomodulatory agent. This indication is approved under accelerated approval based on progression free survival. Continued approval for this indication may be contingent upon verification and description of clinical benefit in confirmatory trials.
The recommended starting dose of Panobinostat is 20 mg, taken orally once every other day for 3 doses per week in Weeks 1 and 2 of each 21-day cycle for up to 8 cycles. Consider continuing treatment for an additional 8 cycles for patients with clinical benefit who do not experience unresolved severe or medically significant toxicity. The total duration of treatment may be up to 16 cycles (48 weeks). Panobinostat is administered in combination with bortezomib and dexamethasone. The recommended dose of bortezomib is 1.3 mg/m² given as an injection. The recommended dose of dexamethasone is 20 mg taken orally per scheduled day, on a full stomach.
