What is Expanded Access?
||A Multicenter, Single-Arm, Open-Label Treatment Use Protocol for Pomalidomide (POM) in Combination With Low Dose Dexamethasone (LD-Dex) in Patients With Relapsed or Refractory Multiple Myeloma
4 mg daily for 21 days in a 28 day cycle until disease progression or other reasons for treatment discontinuation
Other Name: Pomalidomide
Several clinical studies indicate that pomalidomide has activity in relapsed and refractory multiple myeloma with response rates ranging between 30% and 60% at pomalidomide doses at 2 mg/day and/or 4 mg/day.
