In peripheral neuropathy with thalidomide, is lenalidomide a good alternative for newly diagnosed multiple myeloma with velcade (bortezomib) dexamethasone?

Possibly: Even though Lenalidomide causes less neuropathy it still occurs. Also depends on the disease. Meaning how aggressive does one need to be. Is there kidney dysfunction? Is the patient of transplant age?

Pomalidomide: May try pomalidomide or re-treat with valcade or clinical trial if PS remains good. No sufficient data after carfilzomib failure.
