Thalidomide currently is used to treat relapsed and refractory multiple myeloma. The drug also is being actively investigated in patients newly diagnosed with multiple myeloma. The therapeutic applications of thalidomide are expected to grow as clinical trials document its activity in treating other neoplastic disorders and diseases. Healthcare providers need to be well informed of its toxicities and able to identify their signs and symptoms immediately. They must have adequate knowledge about thalidomide administration and provide comprehensive patient education regarding thalidomide and its toxicities to ensure patient safety and compliance.
