E1A06: A phase III trial comparing melphalan, prednisone, and thalidomide (MPT) versus melphalan, prednisone, and lenalidomide (MPR) in newly diagnosed multiple myeloma (MM)
Melphalan, prednisone and thalidomide (MPT) is an accepted regimen in newly diagnosed MM. Early studies suggested that lenalidomide (R) might be substituted for thalidomide (T) with equal efficacy and less toxicity. We present E1A06, a randomized, multicenter phase 3 trial comparing MPT vs. MPR in pts with untreated, symptomatic, transplant ineligible MM.
