Cereblon (CRBN) mediates immunomodulatory drug (IMiD) action in multiple myeloma (MM). We demonstrate here that no patient with very low CRBN expression responded to IMiD plus dexamethasone therapy. In 53 refractory MM patients treated with pomalidomide and dexamethasone, CRBN levels predict for decreased response rates and significant differences in PFS (3.0 vs. 8.9 months, p<0.001) and OS (9.1 vs. 27.2 months, p=0.01) (lowest quartile vs. highest three quartiles). While higher CRBN levels can… CONTINUE READING
