Further study details as provided by Novartis:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • To determine the MTD of i.v. LBH589 in combination with docetaxel and prednisone in patients with HRPC [ Time Frame: determine if MTD occurs after every 3 - 6 pts ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • To compare the PK profile of i.v. LBH589 with and without docetaxel [ Time Frame: PK assessment will occur during the first 2 weeks of each pt treatment. Minor safety throughout the study treatment phase ]
  • To determine safety and tolerability of i.v. LBH589 in combination with docetaxel and prednisone in patients with HRPC [ Time Frame: PK assessment will occur during the first 2 weeks of each pt treatment ]
  • To determine preliminary activity of i.v. LBH589 in combination with docetaxel and prednisone [ Time Frame: PK assessment will occur during the first 2 weeks of each pt treatment ]
