About the REVLIMID REMS® program

REVLIMID® (lenalidomide) in combination with dexamethasone is indicated for the treatment of patients with multiple myeloma (MM).

REVLIMID is indicated as maintenance therapy in patients with MM following autologous hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (auto-HSCT).

REVLIMID is indicated for the treatment of patients with transfusion-dependent anemia due to low- or intermediate-1–risk myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS) associated with a deletion 5q cytogenetic abnormality with or without additional cytogenetic abnormalities.

REVLIMID is indicated for the treatment of patients with mantle cell lymphoma (MCL) whose disease has relapsed or progressed after two prior therapies, one of which included bortezomib.

To avoid embryo-fetal exposure, REVLIMID is only available under a restricted distribution program called "REVLIMID Risk Evaluation and Mitigation Strategy (REMS)." Only certified prescribers can prescribe REVLIMID and only certified pharmacies can dispense REVLIMID in the REVLIMID REMS® program.

In order to receive REVLIMID, all patients must be enrolled in the REVLIMID REMS® program and agree to comply with the requirements of the REVLIMID REMS® program.
