Celgene saw the firm get European approval for Revlimid as a treatment for a rare form of blood disease

New Drug Approvals

lenalidomide

European Commission has expanded approval on Revlimid (lenalidomide) to allow treatment of patients with transfusion-dependent anaemia due to low or intermediate-1 risk myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS) with an isolated chromosomal abnormality called deletion 5q when other options do not work. MDS is a type of cancer where the production of blood cells and platelets by the bone marrow is disrupted, which can often lead to severe anemia, infections and bleeding.
