The purpose

The clinical efficacy of mechlorethamine gel (Valchlor) as a maintenance therapy after low dose total skin electron beam therapy (TSEBT) for the treatment mycosis fungoides cutaneous T-cell lymphoma will be evaluated in this study. Subjects will be treated with low dose TSEBT (12 Gy total) over a period of two weeks. After a 30 day observation period and confirmation that their disease stage has been downgraded to IA or IB, subjects will use Valchlor as a maintenance therapy over the course of one year. The efficacy of Valchlor as a maintenance drug will be followed clinically through Modified Severity Weight Assessment Tool (mSWAT) and percent body surface area measurements (%BSA). Furthermore, subjects will be followed histopathologically through skin biopsies performed at the screening visit, immediately after observation period, one month after the start of the maintenance period, and twelve months after the start of the maintenance period (4 biopsies total).

  • Radiation: Total skin electron beam therapy (TSEBT)
