The purpose of this research is to study how helpful thalidomide is in controlling the disease and to study any side effects from taking thalidomide.


Study summary:

Patients will receive thalidomide in the oral form each night before bed. The dose of thalidomide will be increased each week until week 7 as long as there are no significant side effects. Routine physical examinations and blood tests will be done to monitor the effect of treatment and the toxicities encountered, if any, and provide the available treatments for side effects accordingly. Blood tests will be done to monitor the tumor response.
