Özet

Background: The efficacy of epigenetic drugs, such as histone deacetylase inhibitors, is often diminished by poor aqueous solubility resulting in limited bioavailability and a low therapeutic index. To overcome the suboptimal therapeutic index, we have developed a biocompatible starch nanoparticle formulation of CG-1521, a histone deacetylase inhibitor in preclinical development for hard-to-treat breast cancers, which improves its bioavailability and half-life.
