Summary of "PUVA and interferon-α2b combined therapy for patients with mycosis fungoides at different stages of the disease: a seven-year retrospective study in Russia."

Mycosis fungoides (MF) is a clinical-pathologically heterogeneous group of Cutaneous T-Cell Lymphomas (CTCLs) primarily developing and affecting the skin. PUVA is the gold standard of treatment in early disease reaching up to 71.4% of complete remission. Upon insufficient response or immediate relapse PUVA can be combined with systemic therapies, most commonly retinoids or IFNα2b. This article is protected by copyright. All rights reserved.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A chronic, malignant T-cell lymphoma of the skin. In the late stages, the LYMPH NODES and viscera are affected.

A distinct variant of mycosis fungoides characterized by the presence of localized patches or plaques with an intraepidermal proliferation of neoplastic cells.

A strain of PRIMATE T-LYMPHOTROPIC VIRUS 1 isolated from mature T4 cells in patients with T-lymphoproliferation malignancies. It causes adult T-cell leukemia (LEUKEMIA-LYMPHOMA, T-CELL, ACUTE, HTLV-I-ASSOCIATED), T-cell lymphoma (LYMPHOMA, T-CELL), and is involved in mycosis fungoides, SEZARY SYNDROME and tropical spastic paraparesis (PARAPARESIS, TROPICAL SPASTIC).

A disease of the pilosebaceous unit, presenting clinically as grouped follicular papules or plaques with associated hair loss. It is caused by mucinous infiltration of tissues, and usually involving the scalp, face, and neck. It may be primary (idiopathic) or secondary to mycosis fungoides or reticulosis.

A process in which peripheral blood is exposed in an extracorporeal flow system to photoactivated 8-methoxypsoralen (METHOXSALEN) and ultraviolet light - a procedure known as PUVA THERAPY. Photopheresis is at present a standard therapy for advanced cutaneous T-cell lymphoma; it shows promise in the treatment of autoimmune diseases.
