Subjects must have undergone prior treatment with at least 2 cycles of lenalidomide and at least 2 cycles of bortezomib (either in separate regimens or within the same regimen). Subjects must also have documented evidence of progressive disease(PD) during or within 60 days (measured from the end of the last cycle) of completing treatment with the last anti-myeloma drug regimen used just prior to study entry.
  • Subjects must have measurable disease: serum M-protein ≥ 5 g/L or urine M-protein ≥ 200 mg/24 hours or the involved free light chain being ≥100 mg/L when serum free light chain ratio (κ/λ ratio < 0.26 or > 1.65) is abnormal
  • Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group (ECOG) performance status score ≤2
  • Life expectancy >3 months
  • For female patients,

    • naturally postmenopausal for at least 24 months, or take surgical sterilization
    • Women of childbearing potential must:

      1. have 2 negative pregnancy tests before initiating pomalidomide. The first test should be performed within 10-14 days, and the second test within 24 hours prior to initiating pomalidomide
      2. commit either to abstain continuously from heterosexual sexual intercourse or to use 2 methods of reliable birth control, beginning 4 weeks prior to initiating pomalidomide treatment, during therapy, and continuing for 4 weeks following discontinuation of pomalidomide therapy
      3. agree to perform the pregnancy testing during the study
  • Male patients must always use a condom during any sexual contact with females of reproductive potential while taking pomalidomide and for up to 4 weeks after discontinuing pomalidomide, even if they have undergone a successful vasectomy. Meanwhile male patients taking pomalidomide must not donate sperm.
  • Subjects agree not to share medication with another person
  • Subjects are able to adhere to the study visit schedule and other protocol requirements

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Any serious medical conditions, laboratory abnormality, or psychiatric illness that would prevent the patient from complying to the protocol or put the patient's safety at risk
  • Evidence of uncontrolled cardiovascular disease, such as congestive heart failure, unstable angina, myocardial infarction within 12 months prior to enrollment
  • Any of the following laboratory abnormalities:

    • ANC < 1×10^9/L
    • PLT < 75×10^9/L for subjects in whom <50% of bone marrow nucleated cells are plasma cells; or PLT < 30×10^9/L for subjects in whom ≥50% of bone marrow nucleated cells are plasma cells
    • Creatinine Clearance < 45 mL/min
    • AST or ALT > 3.0 x ULN
    • Serum total bilirubin > 34.2 μmol/L
    • Corrected serum calcium > 3.5 mmol/L
    • Hemoglobin < 80g/L

  • Previous therapy with pomalidomide
  • Peripheral neuropathy ≥ Grade 2
