Luminespib (INN,[2] previously known as NVP-AUY922) is an experimental drug candidate for the treatment of cancer. It was discovered through a collaboration between The Institute of Cancer Research and the pharmaceutical company Vernalis[3] and licensed to Novartis.[4] From 2011 to 2014 it was in Phase II clinical trials.[5][6] Chemically it is a resorcinylic isoxazole amide[6]

Luminespib is an inhibitor of heat shock protein 90 (Hsp90),[1] which is a chaperone protein that plays a role in the modification of a variety of proteins that have been implicated in oncogenesis. Luminespib has shown promising activity in preclinical testing against several different tumor types.[7][8][9][10]

A related compound, NVP-HSP990, was abandoned by Novartis in 2012 after it failed to show efficacy in an early clinical trial.[6]
