## Replication Study: BET bromodomain inhibition as a therapeutic strategy to target c-Myc <br> **Abstract** In 2015, as part of the [Reproducibility Project: Cancer Biology][1], we published a Registered Report ([Kandela et al., 2015][2]), that described how we intended to replicate selected experiments from the paper "BET bromodomain inhibition as a therapeutic strategy to target c-Myc" ([Delmore et al., 2011][3]). Here we report the results of those experiments. We found that treatment of human multiple myeloma (MM) cells with the small-molecular inhibitor of BET bromodomains, (+)-JQ1, selectively downregulated _MYC_ transcription, which is similar to what was reported in the original study (Figure 3B; [Delmore et al., 2011][4]). Efficacy of (+)-JQ1 was evaluated in an orthotopically xenografted model of MM. Overall survival was increased in (+)-JQ1 treated mice compared to vehicle control, similar to the original study (Figure 7E; [Delmore et al., 2011][5]). Tumor burden, as determined by bioluminescence, was decreased in (+)-JQ1 treated mice compared to vehicle control; however, while the effect was in the same direction as the original study (Figure 7C-D; [Delmore et al., 2011][6]), it was not statistically significant. The opportunity to detect a statistically significant difference was limited though, due to the higher rate of early death in the control group, and increased overall survival in (+)-JQ1 treated mice, before the pre-specified tumor burden analysis endpoint. Additionally, we evaluated the (-)-JQ1 enantiomer that is structurally incapable of inhibiting BET bromodomains, which resulted in a minimal impact on MYC transcription, but did not result in a statistically significant difference in tumor burden or survival distributions compared to treatment with (+)-JQ1. Finally, we report meta-analyses for each result. ---------- ### Contents **Reports:** Read the [Replication Study][7], or view the [preprint versions][8].
