Semi-mechanistic PKPD model of thrombocytopenia characterizing the effect of a new histone deacetylase inhibitor (HDACi) in development, in co-administration with doxorubicin.

Objective: Recent studies [1, 2] demonstrated that the combination of an HDAC inhibitor and DNA-damaging agents has synergistic effects to induce apoptosis. This observation is of potential clinical applicability although several dose-limiting toxicities need to be pre-assessed before dose optimization. The study aim was to develop a PKPD model of thrombocytopenia that considered the PK […]
