Lenalidomide is a thalidomide analogue indicated for the treatment of patients with:

  • Multiple myeloma (MM), in combination with dexamethasone 
  • MM, as maintenance following autologous hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (auto-HSCT) 
  • Transfusion-dependent anemia due to low- or intermediate-1-risk myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS) associated with a deletion 5q abnormality with or without additional cytogenetic abnormalities
  • Mantle cell lymphoma (MCL) whose disease has relapsed or progressed after two prior therapies, one of which included bortezomib

Limitations of Use: Lenalidomide is not indicated and is not recommended for the treatment of patients with chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) outside of controlled clinical trials 


Lenalidomide, a thalidomide analogue, is an immunomodulatory agent w/ antiangiogenic and antineoplastic property. It inhibits proinflammatory cytokines secretion, increases interleukin-2 and interferon-γ secretion, and increases cytolytic T-cell and natural killer cell response. It also inhibits the growth of myeloma cells by inducing cell cycle arrest and cell death.



Multiple myeloma combination therapy: 25 mg once daily orally on Days 1-21 of repeated 28-day cycles. Refer to section 14.1 for dexamethasone dosing

Multiple myeloma maintenance therapy following autologous hematopoietic stem cell transplantation: 10 mg once daily continuously on Days 1-28 of repeated 28-day cycles 

Myelodysplastic syndromes: 10 mg once daily

Mantle cell lymphoma: 25 mg once daily orally on Days 1-21 of repeated 28-day cycles

Renal impairment: Adjust starting dose based on the creatinine clearance value

Pregnancy: Lenalidomide can cause fetal harm when administered to a pregnant female. Limb abnormalities were seen in the offspring of monkeys that were dosed with lenalidomide during organogenesis. This effect was seen at all doses tested. Due to the results of this developmental monkey study, and lenalidomide’s structural similarities to thalidomide, a known human teratogen, lenalidomide is contraindicated in females who are pregnant. If this drug is used during pregnancy or if the patient becomes pregnant while taking this drug, the patient should be apprised of the potential risk to a fetus 

Severe Hypersensitivity Reactions: Lenalidomide is contraindicated in patients who have demonstrated severe hypersensitivity



Side Effects

Deep vein thrombosis, MI, pulmonary embolism; pruritus, skin hyperpigmentation, hyperhidrosis, dry skin, peripheral oedema, GI disturbances, resp distress, interstitial pneumonitis, cough, fatigue, vertigo, pyrexia, dyspnoea, pancreatitis, CVA, alopecia, electrolyte disturbances, infections (e.g. herpes and pneumonia). Eye disorders (e.g. cataracts, blurred vision, irritation and loss of vision). Musculoskeletal effects (e.g. arthralgia, myalgia, muscle cramps, myopathy and musculoskeletal pain).

Pregnancy & Lactation

Category X: Studies in animals or human beings have demonstrated foetal abnormalities or there is evidence of foetal risk based on human experience or both, and the risk of the use of the drug in pregnant women clearly outweighs any possible benefit. The drug is contraindicated in women who are or may become pregnant.

Precautions & Warnings

Pregnancy test is required prior initiation of therapy and should commence contraceptive measures following negative result. Pregnancy test must be repeated at a regular interval during therapy. History of thrombosis; smokers; patients with HTN, hyperlipidaemia, high tumour burden. Renal impairment. Elderly.
