  • Pregnant or breast feeding females; (lactating females must agree not to breast feed while taking lenalidomide)
  • Any condition, including the presence of laboratory abnormalities, which places the subject at unacceptable risk if he/she were to participate in the study or confounds the ability to interpret data from the study
  • Chemotherapy, immunotherapy, radiotherapy, radiosurgery, interferon (e.g. Intron-A®), allergy desensitization injections, growth factors (e.g. Procrit®, Aranesp®, Neulasta®), interleukins (e.g. Proleukin®) or any investigational therapeutic medication within 4 weeks of study entry
