I know that Revlamid is now a treatment for Myloma, but have they used it on relapsed patients with lymphoma?

Thanks for responding!  I am new to this site and having trouble figuring out how to respond to your message!  Hope you get this!

  It is Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma, - falicular - indolent -  Started out 2 1/2 years ago with lump in neck...tried Chop..worked for 5 months, went to Zevalin - worked for 2 months...then to Rice....then headed to Mayo for BMT...more RICE (didn't shrink tumors enough to do BMT..plus had too many bulky ones)  Came back and did a couple others...now is on Rituxan and Prednisone and tried Gemzar two weeks ago...but lowered the platelets etc. too much to do it again today, so is just on the Rituxan and Prednisone again for two weeks.  It has been a long battle but he is actually doing pretty well....we had to start home dialysis (chemo and tumors pressing on kidneys - damage and pressure on kidneys).  Now seem to have trouble getting counts to get back to normal.

    Thanks for your input!
