In brief: Not true

lenalidomide is one of agents /treatments we use to treat multiple myeloma.
combining with other agents, it has demonstrated response and survival, however, unfortunately we still are unable to cure mutliple myeloma at this time. pomalidomide is newer line of lenalidomide.

In brief: No

It is a drug that has very much helped to control multiple myeloma, but we are still working on finding a reliable cure.
There are likely to be future advancements, but at this time we mostly are able to prolong life (sometimes for many years) but not deliver an absolute cure.
