Histone deacetylase inhibitors are clearly effective therapeutic tools in the treatment of cancers, particularly haematological malignancies. The purpose of this special issue is to provide the reader with a focused review of on the current place of HDACi as a therapy, particularly in blood cancers. We hope to provide a broad overview of the rationale behind their use, with specific papers focusing on diseases where they clearly have biological effects - NHL, Hodgkin disease, myeloid malignancies. Finally we hope to have two seperate papers examining mechanisms of resistance and common toxicities.
I hope you will be able to contribute to what I see will be a valuable compendium of insightful reviews in this very topical subject.
