Finding new treatments for Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma
Cancer drugs known as histone deacetylase (HDAC) inhibitors, that work by blocking the action of a molecule called histone deacetylase, have recently been approved for the treatment of some lymphomas. Dr Zelent has evidence that they may also be effective treatments for other lymphomas including Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma. He is now using his Worldwide Cancer Research grant to investigate exactly how a specific type of HDAC called HDAC9 is involved in Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma and to investigate if HDAC inhibitors could also be given to these patients.
