In continuation of my update on lenalidomide

Celgene International Sàrl, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Celgene Corporation (NASDAQ: CELG), recently announced that its phase III study (MM-020/IFM 07-01) of REVLIMID®(lenalidomide) in combination with dexamethasone in patients newly diagnosed withmultiple myeloma met its primary endpoint of progression-free survival (PFS). In the study, a doublet regimen of continuous oral lenalidomide in combination with low-dose dexamethasone (Rd) demonstrated a statistically significant improvement in PFS compared to patients receiving a comparator arm with a triplet regimen consisting of melphalan, prednisone and thalidomide (MPT).
