Lenalidomide Mylan is a medicine used for the treatment of certain cancers affecting blood cells, namely multiple myeloma and follicular lymphoma.
In multiple myeloma, a cancer of a type of white blood cells called plasma cells, Lenalidomide Mylan is used:
- in adults with previously untreated (newly diagnosed) multiple myeloma, who have had a stem cell transplant (a procedure where the patient’s bone marrow is cleared of cells and replaced by stem cells from a donor);
- in adults with previously untreated (newly diagnosed) multiple myeloma, who cannot have stem cell transplantation. It is used in combination with dexamethasone, or bortezomib and dexamethasone, or melphalan and prednisone;
- in adults whose disease has been treated at least once. It is used in combination with dexamethasone.
In follicular lymphoma, a blood cancer that affects a type of white blood cell called B lymphocytes, Lenalidomide Mylan is used in adults whose disease has come back after treatment or does not improve with treatment. It is used in combination with rituximab.
Lenalidomide Mylan contains the active substance lenalidomide and is a ‘generic medicine’. This means that Lenalidomide Mylan contains the same active substance and works in the same way as a ‘reference medicine’ already authorised in the EU called Revlimid.
