[e-drug] Thalidomide, AIDS and multiple myeloma?

E-DRUG: Thalidomide, AIDS and multiple myeloma?
----------------------------------------------

Dear E-drugger,

Could you inform me about the current use of thalidomide in HIV patients.
Recently the indication for this drug was extended to multiple myeloma, but
what about Aids? Did the triple therapy make the drug superfluous?

Sincerely yours,

Dr. F.H. Jansen

[please add signature and affiliation next time! Thanks, WB

Thalidomide is making a surprise comeback after being banned in the 1960's.
Anyone eith experience of HIV and multiple myeloma?
Maybe one can check the following article:
Aboulafia DM. Thalidomide-based treatment for HIV-associated multiple
myeloma: a case report. AIDS Reader 2003;13:383-389.]
