WHAT IS LENALIDOMIDE?
Lenalidomide is classified as an "immunomodulatory agent" and an "antiangiogenic agent". It affects all sorts of cell processes, including how cells divide and grow. It interferes with chemicals that cells use to signal to each other to grow. It affects how the immune system works and is called an immunomodulatory agent. It also stops tumours making their own blood vessels. To develop, all cancers need a blood supply.
Lenalidomide is a type of biological therapy drug. Lenalidomide is a treatment for myeloma and blood disorders called myelodysplastic syndromes. You may also have it as part of clinical trials for other types of cancer. For myeloma, lenalidomide may be given with another chemotherapy drug called melphalan and a steroid called dexamethasone.
