Trial of Immunomodulatory Therapy in High Risk Solitary Bone Plasmacytoma (IDRIS)
The aim of this trial is to determine whether taking lenalidomide and dexamethasone after radiotherapy is more effective at treating high risk solitary bone plasmacytoma than radiotherapy alone.

Who can enter the study?:
Patients with newly diagnosed solitary bone plasmacytoma.
Patients are randomised to receive either lenalidomide and dexamethasone or no treatment after receiving radiotherapy to treat the solitary bone plasmacytoma.
Patients assigned to the treatment leg of the trial will receive lenalidomide on days 1-21 and dexamethasone on days 1, 8, 15 & 22 for up to 9 cycles.
Patients maybe required to attend outpatient clinics for regular check-ups and tests.
(for Medical Professionals):
The purpose of the phase III trial is to establish whether adjuvant therapy with lenalidomide and dexamethasone after radiotherapy can improve progression free survival in patients with high risk solitary bone plasmacytoma compared with radiotherapy only.
The investigators hope to demonstrate that adjuvant therapy with lenalidomide and dexamethasone prevents the development of multiple myeloma in patients with high risk solitary bone plasmacytoma.
