5q- & Darbopoetin

Post by WrightM&G » 27 Jun 2012 13:42

Can I be contacted by somebody with 5q- RAEB who has had treatment with Darbopoetin? How often do they take it and how long have they been on it; how long does it work?

Is there anybody who has been on Revlamid for 5 years+ and how do you feel> How has your life changed?

sorry no-one had replied to you yet.
It may be that nobody on this forum has used revlimid for 5 years - as it has not been available widely in this country for that long - and usually only as part of a trial.
However, I know of MDS patients in the UK who have had Revlimid for at least 3 or 4 years.
I also know of MDS patients in Europe who had Revlimid for definitely 5 years.
Then you can also use the MDS Foundation discussion forum - where you can find many american patients who have use Revlimid for a number of years - as it has been licensed in the USA since 2006 - and would have been used in trials even before that.

Hope this helps. Do not hesitate to call us if you wish more precise information.
