Key inclusion & exclusion criteria
Inclusion criteria:
1. Age > 18 years
2. Patients with a diagnosis of POEMS syndrome based on published diagnostic criteria (Appendix B POEMS syndrome Diagnostic Criteria)
3. Patients with at least a moderate impairment due to neuropathy corresponding to an ONLS of 2 or more
4. Patients with a Karnofsky performance status = 60%
5. Patients with a life-expectancy > 6 months.
6. Patients willing and able to comply with the protocol requirements,
7. Patients who have given voluntary written informed consent before any study-related procedure not part of normal medical care, with the understanding that consent may be withdrawn by the patient at any time without prejudice to their future medical care.
8. Female patient should be either post-menopausal or surgically sterilised or willing to use two acceptable method of birth control. The two methods of reliable contraception must include one highly effective method (i.e. intrauterine device (IUD), hormonal except oral formulations, and one additional effective (barrier) method (i.e. latex condom, diaphragm, cervical cap). Combined oral contraceptive pills are not recommended because they carry an increased risk of venous thromboembolism. If a patient is currently using combined oral contraception, switching to another adequate method of contraception should be considered.
9. Male patient should agree to use an acceptable method for contraception (i.e., condom or abstinence) for the duration of the study.
10. Patients with the following laboratory values within 14 days before day 1 of the Cycle 1:
Absolute neutrophil count > 1.5 x 109/L without the use of growth factors;
Platelets count > 75 x 109/L without transfusion support within 7 days before the test
Calculated or measured creatinine clearance: = 20 mL/minute
Total bilirubin < 1.5 x the ULN
AST (SGOT) and ALT (SGPT) < 2.5 x ULN
Are the trial subjects under 18? no
Number of subjects for this age range:
F.1.2 Adults (18-64 years) yes
F.1.2.1 Number of subjects for this age range
F.1.3 Elderly (>=65 years) yes
F.1.3.1 Number of subjects for this age range

Exclusion criteria:
Any serious medical condition, laboratory abnormality, or psychiatric illness that would prevent the subject from signing the informed consent form.
2. Pregnant or breast feeding females.
3. Any condition, including the presence of laboratory abnormalities, which places the subject at unacceptable risk.
4. Use of any other concomitant standard/experimental drug or therapy
5. Any prior use of Revlimid
6. Any of the following laboratory abnormalities:
Platelets count < 75 ? 109/L
Absolute neutrophils count <1.5 ? 109/L

Primary Outcome(s)
Main Objective:  Evaluation of clinical efficacy of RD combination in patients with POEMS syndrome, in terms of improvement of either the disability caused by the neuropathy (ONLS) or organ specific symptoms (appendix D) after 6 cycles.
Primary end point(s):  Evaluation of clinical efficacy of RD combination in patients with POEMS syndrome, in terms of improvement of either the disability caused by the neuropathy (ONLS) or organ specific symptoms (appendix D) after 6 cycles.
Secondary Objective:  Evaluation of the safety of RD combination
