Treating multiple myeloma with Thalomid (Thalidomide)
When cells in the body start dividing and regenerating uncontrollably, they lead to cancer – and this is true for all the cells in the body. If the cancer is not nipped in its bud early on, it can spread to other parts of the body. This presents the common question asked regards cancer; how can it be stopped early on? The same can be said for cancers that start from the bone marrow such as multiple myelomas.
Multiple myelomas are formed when plasma cells begin to grow uncontrollably. Plasma cells release immunoglobulins (antibodies) that help the body fight against germs. The bone marrow is rich in plasma cells, and it is the perfect place for growth of new cells. When the plasma cells grow out of control, they form clusters known as a tumor. If just a single tumor is formed, it is called a solitary plasmacytoma, but if more than one tumor exists, it is known as multiple myeloma.
Treatment of multiple myeloma
Thalomid or Thalidomide as it is generically called is used in combination with dexametasone to treat multiple myeloma. This can be as a first line of action, for relapsed patients, or for patients seeking maintenance therapy. Depending on the target of the treatment, Thalomid can be used in combination with other drugs, or alone.
How Thalomid or Thalidomide works
Thalomid (Thalidomide) is an immunomodulatory agent (increases the immune system’s response against myeloma cells) that inhibits the growth and continuous replication of myeloma cells. It does this by binding the cereblon protein found in myeloma cells. Research has shown that people with higher levels of cereblon after treatment have better outcomes.
