Abstract:

Experimental studies have demonstrated that thalidomide, a drug developed as a sedative, has antitumoral properties. Its broad spectrum of actions besides its antiangiogenic potential, includes immunomodulatory properties, antiinflammatory actions and direct effect on tumor cells and their microenvironment. Multiple myeloma is so far the most responsive malignancy.
