The purpose of this study is to find out the effects of a drug called LBH589 when given to people with recurrent or refractory Hodgkin or Non-Hodgkin's lymphoma. The safety of this drug will also be studied. The participants' physical state, changes in the size of the tumor, or state of Hodgkin or non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma, and laboratory findings taken while on-study will help the researchers decide if LBH589 is safe and effective.

Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: LBH589
LBH589 administered orally as once daily dose of 20 mg po q M, W, F on a q 28 day cycle, escalating to a maximum dase of 60 mg
Drug: LBH589
LBH589 will be administered orally as once daily dose of 20 mg po q M, W, F on a q28 day cycle.

Detailed Description:
This is an open-label, standard 3-3 dose finding scheme with a modification that allows intra-patient dose modification to determine maximum tolerated dose and toxicity profile of LBH589 in patients with recurrent or refractory Hodgkin's or non-Hodgkin's lymphoma.

Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years and older
Genders Eligible for Study:   Both

  • Patients who will need valproic acid for any medication during the study or within 5 days prior to first LBH589 treatment
  • Peripheral neuropathy ≥ CTCAE grade 1
  • Impaired cardiac function or clinically significant cardiac diseases, including any one of the following:
  • Patients with congenital QT syndrome
  • History or presence of sustained ventricular tachyarrhythmia.
  • Any history of ventricular fibrillation or torsade de pointes
  • Bradycardia defined as Heart Rate < 50 bpm. Patients with pacemakers are eligible if Heart Rate ≥ 50 bpm
  • Screening EKG with a QTc.450msec
  • Right Bundle branch block + left anterior hemiblock (bifascicular block)
  • Patients with myocardial infarction or unstable angina ≤ 6 months prior to starting study drug
  • other clinically significant heart disease (e.g. CHF NY Heart Association class III or IV, uncontrolled hypertension, history of labile hypertension or history of poor compliance with an antihypertensive regimen)
  • Impairment of GI function or GI disease that may significantly alter the absorption of LBH589
  • Patients with Diarrhea > CTCAE grade 1
  • Other concurrent severe and/or uncontrolled medical conditions (e.g. uncontrolled diabetes or active or uncontrolled infection) including abnormal laboratory values that could cause unaccepted safety risks or compromise compliance with the protocol

  • Concomitant use of CYP3A4 inhibitors
  • Patients who have received targeted agents within 2 weeks or within 5 half-lives of the agent and active metabolites(which ever is longer) and who have not recovered from side effects of those therapies
  • Patients who have received either immunotherapy within ≤ 8 weeks;chemotherapy within ≤ 4 weeks or radiation therapy to >30% of marrow-bearing bone within ≤ weeks prior to starting study treatment or who have not yet recovered from side effects of such therapies
  • Patients with an active bleeding tendency or is receiving any treatment with therapeutic doses of sodium warfarin or coumadin derivatives. Low doses of Coumadin (e.g.≤2 mg/day) to maintain line patency is allowed.
  • Patients who have undergone major surgery ≤ 4 weeks prior to starting study drug or who have not recovered from side effects of such therapy

  • Prior allogenic stem cell transplant
  • Patients with any significant history of non-compliance to medical regimens or unwilling or unable to comply with the instructions given to him/her by the study staff
  • Patients taking CYP2D6 inhibitors should be carefully monitored, but these drugs are not necessarily contraindicated when use concomitantly with LBH. Use of these drugs is not an exclusion criterion
