Outcomes of Cutaneous T-Cell Lymphoma and Graft-Versus-Host Disease With Extracorporeal Photopheresis Treatment
The safety and scientific validity of this study is the responsibility of the study sponsor and investigators. Listing a study does not mean it has been evaluated by the U.S. Federal Government.
Read our disclaimer for details.
Extracorporeal Photopheresis (ECP) is a form of apheresis and photodynamic therapy in which the peripheral blood is treated with 8-methoxypsoralen, which is then activated with UV light. ECP is currently a standard therapy for cutaneous T-cell lymphoma (CTCL) and is also effective for graft-versus-host disease (GVHD). The investigators would like to study the outcomes (response rates) of patients receiving ECP treatment and other factors relating to their disease and treatment, as well as procedural events, such as complications.

The investigators intend to report outcomes from the inception of this procedure at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center (DHMC) in May 2008 through 9/30/11. Additionally, the investigators would like to maintain a prospective database of these patients so that new patient data can be collected for updating of outcomes.
