|Official Title:||Phase I Study of Pomalidomide in Relapsed or Refractory Waldenstrom Macroglobulinemia|
- Maximum Tolerated Dose (MTD) of Pomalidomide in Participants with Symptomatic Waldenström Macroglobulinemia (WM) [ Time Frame: 28 days ]MTD is defined as the highest dose level in which 6 patients have been treated with less than 2 instances of dose limiting toxicity (DLT) defined as any grade >/= 3 toxicity occurring during the first cycle (28 days).
- Efficacy of Pomalidomide in Participants with Symptomatic Waldenström Macroglobulinemia (WM) [ Time Frame: 30 days after last dose of study drug given. ]Efficacy of pomalidomide measured as best response to therapy. Results of blood, urine, and CT and/or MRI scan of the chest, abdomen, and pelvis assessed at end of treatment.
