Hello,

I wonder if someone here had been treated with Revlimid. This is said to be very promising drug to fight Myelodisplastis Syndromes. Phase 3 trials are going to run soon.

Please share your achievements if you have been treated with Revlimid.

Hi,
My mom is being treated with Revlimid as well. She is 78, and probably wouldn't be able to handle FULL chemo and radiation

this is her second course of twenty-eight day treatments, adn although the first course showed improvement, it didn't do enough.

I am also finding VERY little info on the internet for OLDER people with MDS. The most info I find is for people who have been treated with other stuff first, adn this is their second go-around. this is NOT the case with my mom. She was just diagnosed in September for the first time.


ANybody else out there with info or experience?
