What is Revlimid?
Top of the best cancer drug list is Celgene’s Revlimid (lenalidomide). This drug has been very successful in the treatment of multiple myeloma as it promotes immune responses that slow tumour growth. It is also used to treat myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS). Prior to the development of this drug, prognosis for patients diagnosed with multiple myeloma was poor so in the years following the drug’s entry to market, survival rates have soared.
It can treat myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS), multiple myeloma, and mantle cell lymphoma (MCL).
