Several clinical studies were led in 2006 by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for the approval of the drug in ­patients with relapsed/refractory MM and this led to response rates as high as 65% [13–15]. Lenalidomide is an analog of thalidomide with anti-angiogenic proprieties. It inhibits VEGF-induced PI3-K-Akt pathway signaling and hypoxia inducible factor 1 alpha (HIF-1α) expression [16], exerts anti-tumor necrosis factor alpha (TNF-α) activity, modulates the immune response stimulating T-cells’ and NK-cells’ activities, induces apoptosis of tumor cells and decreases the binding of MM cells to bone marrow stromal components [10,11,17,18].
