Selinexor blocks tumor growth, promotes an anti-tumor immune response, and increases survival in a mouse model of primary central nervous system lymphoma (PCNSL).
Why this matters
PCNSL is a rare and aggressive form of non-Hodgkin lymphoma, with limited treatment options and a 5-year survival rate of 30%.
Selinexor is a selective inhibitor of nuclear export which binds to cargo pocket of exportin XPO1 causing nuclear accumulation of tumor suppressor proteins and cell cycle regulators.
Selinexor may be a good candidate for the treatment of PCNSL; however, extensive pre-clinical and clinical trials would be needed to prove this.
