Study Summary

This trial is testing the combination of two existing treatments, mogamulizumab and extracorporeal photopheresis, to see if they are more effective than either treatment alone in treating patients with Sezary syndrome or mycosis fungoides.

Eligible Conditions
  • Cutaneous T-Cell Lymphoma
  • Sezary Syndrome
  • Mycosis Fungoides

Eligibility Criteria

Age 18+ · All Participants · 4 Total Inclusion Criteria

Mark “Yes” if the following statements are true for you:
You have been treated for your medical condition with medications including chemotherapy, retinoids, interferon, or other similar drugs.
A line of therapy means any treatment or combination of treatments that was started or changed because it wasn't working, the disease was getting worse, or you couldn't tolerate it.
You have either just been diagnosed with the condition being studied, or have received three or fewer types of medication for it in the past.
You must wait at least 4 weeks after your previous CTCL therapy before starting the combination therapy.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can you elaborate on the other explorations that have been conducted using Extracorporeal Photopheresis?

"Currently, 10 clinical trials for Extracorporeal Photopheresis are in progress. None of those studies have achieved Phase 3 status yet. Despite the base of operations being Bethesda, Maryland, 48 distinct medical centres are conducting research on this treatment modality." - Anonymous Online Contributor

Unverified Answer

What is the ultimate aim of this experiment?

"The primary outcome of this study, which shall be measured over a 3-year period post treatment, is the Frequency of dose-limiting toxicities (DLT's). Secondary outcomes include Time to response based on GRS and estimated via the Kaplan Meier Method, Duration of Response calculated in the same way as well as Progression Free Survival evaluated through Cox proportional hazards models. Statistical significance will also be determined by assessing any potential interaction terms between these factors." - Anonymous Online Contributor
