  • [Title] Brainstem involvement by mycosis fungoides in a patient with large-cell transformation: a case report and review of literature.
  • BACKGROUND: Central nervous system (CNS) involvement by mycosis fungoides (MF) is rare.
  • RESULTS: A 71-year-old female with long-standing MF developed lymphomatous CNS involvement 10 years after the diagnosis of tumor stage MF.
  • At this time, the patient presented with a transient episode of garbled speech followed by generalized weakness.
  • Computerized tomography scan (CT scan) and magnetic resonance imaging scan (MRI scan) of the head revealed a subcortical lesion in the left temporo-frontal lobe.
  • Cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) examination showed atypical T cells, and brain biopsy confirmed parenchymal involvement by T-cell lymphoma.
  • Meanwhile, a biopsy of a skin lesion showed large-cell transformation.
  • No lymph node or other systemic involvement was noted at this time, and the patient was treated with chemotherapy.
  • Twelve months later, the patient developed recurrent CNS lymphoma with multiple organ involvement and expired soon thereafter.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • Because the International Union Against Cancer (UICC) TNM and stage classifications for malignant melanoma were changed substantially in 2002, analyses in the present investigation were performed according to the new classifications.
  • In addition, the numbers of patients with various kinds of skin malignancies, including not only malignant melanoma but also basal cell carcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma, mycosis fungoides, actinic keratosis, Bowen's disease, and Paget's disease, registered at approximately 100 medical institutions in Japan from 1987 to 2001, were also investigated and data were tabulated.
  • RESULTS: The nationwide survey of Japanese patients with malignant skin tumors from 1987 to 2001 showed that the most prevalent skin tumor was basal cell carcinoma, which increased year by year, followed by squamous cell carcinoma, and then by malignant melanoma.
  • The following results were obtained from the data for melanoma patients registered at major institutions from 1987 to 2001. (1) The overall 10-year survival rates for melanoma patients in each chronological group were ranked as: group C > B > A, although only the difference between groups C and A was statistically significant. (2) The male-to-female ratio ranged from 1: 0.97 to 1: 1.14, and the survival rate of female patients was higher than that of male patients (the 140-month survival rate was 70.6% in females and 60% in males). (3) Assessment of the age distribution showed that the number of patients increased rapidly from ages 40-49 years and reached a peak at around 60 years in all three groups. (4) The sole of the foot was the most common site of melanoma in both males and females, while melanomas on the lower limbs were also prevalent in females. (5) Acral lentiginous melanoma (ALM) was the most common type in all three groups, accounting for nearly 50% of the patients in each group.
  • The number of patients with superficial spreading melanoma (SSM) increased steadily over time and exceeded the number of patients with nodular melanoma (NM) in group C.
  • The prognosis of NM was the worst, while that of SSM was the most favorable. (6) The proportion of stage I patients was larger in group C than in groups A and B, but no significant difference among the groups was observed in the proportions of stage II, III, and IV patients.
  • For patients in stage III, the overall survival rate was higher in group C than that in group A or B, while there was no apparent difference in survival between the groups for patients in stage I or II.
  • For patients in stage IV, the survival rate in group C was slightly lower than that in group A or B. (7) In group C, the overall survival rates for substages III A, B, and C were ranked as III A > III B > III C. (8) The overall survival rates for stage IV M1a, M1b, and M1c were ranked as M1a > M1b > M1c.
  • In group C, the overall survival rate of stage IV patients with a normal serum lactic dehydrogenase (LDH) level was higher than that of patients with elevated LDH values. (9) Evaluation of the effects of some therapeutic procedures (prophylactic lymph node dissection and chemotherapy with and without interferon-beta) on the survivals of patients with melanoma was inconclusive and suggested the need for more studies in this area.
  • The prognosis of patients with advanced malignant melanoma remains extremely poor, but that of patients in stage III has shown an improvement.

  • [Title] Campath-1H (anti-CD52) monoclonal antibody therapy in lymphoproliferative disorders.
  • Campath-1H is a humanized monoclonal antibody targeted against the CDw52 membrane antigen of lymphocytes, which causes complement and antibody-dependent cell-mediated cytotoxicity.
  • Campath-1H has been used in B-chronic lymphocytic leukemia (B-CLL), T-prolymphocytic leukemia (T-PLL), and low-grade non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (LGNHL).
  • Because of the antibody's higher activity on circulating lymphocytes, it has been used for in vivo purging of residual disease in B-CLL, followed by autologous stem-cell transplantation.
  • In heavily pretreated advanced stage LGNHL, response is achieved only in 14% of cases with B-phenotype; a 50% response rate is noted in mycosis fungoides.
  • The main complications of Campath-1H treatment are caused by tumor necrosis factor (TNF)-alpha and interleukin (IL)-6 release, usually during the first intravenous infusion, and include fever, rigor, nausea, vomiting, and hypotension responsive to steroids.

  • [Title] Autologous peripheral blood stem cell transplantation in tumor-stage mycosis fungoides: predictors of disease-free survival.
  • Nine patients with mycosis fungoides (age range 27-67) underwent autologous peripheral blood stem cell transplantation (PBSCT).
  • All patients had tumor-stage disease, and four had lymph node involvement.
  • Eight patients exhibited a peripheral blood T cell clone using PCR/SSCP analysis of the TCR gamma gene, six prior to harvest and two at the time of harvest.
  • Conditioning prior to reinfusion of stem cells was achieved with various combinations of total skin electron beam (TSEB), total body irradiation (TBI), and chemotherapy, depending upon the patient's prior exposure to radiotherapy.
  • Those with a short DFS were distinguished by rapid tumor onset prior to transplant but not by stage at transplant.
  • Loss of a detectable T cell clone after manipulation of the harvest did not discriminate between the two groups, but rapid relapsers had been subjected to a greater degree of T cell depletion, possibly indicating a compromised cytotoxic response post-PBSCT.
  • The median survival of the cohort is four years from tumor onset, 15 months from PBSCT, and 27 months from the date a peripheral blood clone was first detected in the presence of tumor-stage disease.
  • Our data demonstrate the value of PBSCT for inducing remission in tumor-stage mycosis fungoides.
  • Reinfusion of neoplastic cells could be avoided by harvesting stem cells at an earlier stage in the disease process, preferably before a T cell clone is detectable in the peripheral blood.
  • Alternatively T cell depletion should be restricted to the CD4 subset.

  • [Title] Therapy for mycosis fungoides.
  • Treatment of mycosis fungoides (MF) is indicated to reduce symptoms, improve clinical appearance, prevent secondary complications, and prevent progression of disease, all of which may have an impact on survival.
  • Treatment of MF includes topical and systemic therapies, which can be administered alone or in combination.
  • Psoralen and ultraviolet A radiation is effective in early-stage MF, inducing complete remissions in most patients.
  • Psoralen and ultraviolet A radiation may also be combined with low doses of interferon (IFN)-alpha to treat stage I/II disease.
  • However, early aggressive therapy with radiation and chemotherapy does not improve the prognosis.
  • Once the disease becomes refractory to topical therapy, IFN-alpha single-agent or combination chemotherapy may be administered, but the duration of response is often less than 1 year and ultimately all patients will relapse and become refractory.
  • Response rates after combined modality therapy with total skin electron beam irradiation and chemotherapy/IFN-alpha appear similar to response rates of chemotherapy alone.
  • Therefore, there is a great need for the further development of novel emerging treatment modalities, such as retinoids (ie, bexarotene) and immunotherapeutic agents (ie, cytokines, tumor vaccines, and monoclonal antibodies), all of which appear to have significant therapeutic potential in patients with MF.
  • Biologically based therapies may reduce the need for genotoxic therapies, such as cytostatics and radiotherapy.

  • [Title] Low-dose gemcitabine efficacious in three patients with tumor-stage mycosis fungoides.
  • Mycosis fungoides is the most common subtype of mature T-cell lymphoma that primarily arises in the skin.
  • The tumor manifests as patches, plaques, tumors, or erythroderma and can secondarily involve lymph nodes, peripheral blood, and visceral organs.
  • In advanced tumor stage, chemotherapy is a second-line approach, which is generally not considered curative.
  • Initially, most patients profit from this treatment, but observed remissions usually do not exceed several months.
  • Because of possible immunosuppressive effects in vulnerable patients, the overall benefit of chemotherapy itself is not unequivocal in cutaneous T-cell lymphoma.
  • We report 3 patients whose tumor-stage mycosis fungoides was not sufficiently controlled by several preceding systemic therapies, including liposome-encapsulated doxorubicin.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • BACKGROUND: Sezary syndrome and mycosis fungoides are forms of cutaneous T-cell lymphoma, and in the early stage of these diseases psoralen plus ultraviolet A (PUVA) is one of the treatments of choice.
  • Photodynamic therapy using 5-aminolevulinic acid (ALA-PDT) is an effective, non-invasive, and safe treatment for most superficial skin cancers.
  • In order to obtain greater efficacy of PUVA, we investigated the synergistic anti-tumor effects of ALA-PDT and PUVA using 8-methoxypsoralen (8-MOP) and a UVA lamp.
  • METHODS: The in vitro effects of PUVA and ALA-PDT and their combination in HUT-78 cell line from human SS were determined by MTT assay.
  • RESULTS: In our results, cell proliferation compared with controls was inhibited to 53.2% with UVA alone, 52.3% with 1 microM 8-MOP, 43.8% with 100 microM ALA, and 19.2% with combined 8-MOP and ALA.
  • CONCLUSION: Combined use of ALA and PUVA using 8-MOP and UVA lamps, which are widespread in Japan, had a strong anti-tumor effect in vitro.
  • Combined treatment with ALA-PDT and PUVA using a UVA lamp appears to have a strong treatment effect.

  • [Title] Long-term remission after allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation for refractory cutaneous T-cell lymphoma.
  • BACKGROUND: Allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation has proved to be an effective therapeutic option in various hematologic neoplastic disorders.
  • Because patients with advanced cutaneous T-cell lymphoma have a poor prognosis, with minimal possibilities of sustained remission, we studied the therapeutic potential of hematopoietic stem cell transplantation.
  • OBSERVATIONS: Three young patients with refractory tumor stage mycosis fungoides underwent allogeneic HLA-matched sibling transplantation with combined marrow and CD34-enriched peripheral blood stem cell transplantation after cytoreductive chemotherapy and total-body irradiation.
  • One patient was in complete remission for 9 months, followed by limited cutaneous recurrence.
  • Mild graft-vs-host disease and graft-vs-tumor effect have contained the recurring disease as a low-grade process.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation has the potential for sustained remission and the possibility of cure for young patients with advanced and recalcitrant cutaneous T-cell lymphoma.
  • Even in the absence of complete remission, an allogeneic graft-vs-tumor effect may provide an immune mechanism to control the malignant T-cell process and alter the natural history of disease.

  • [Title] Treatment of relapsing or recalcitrant cutaneous T-cell lymphoma with pegylated liposomal doxorubicin.
  • BACKGROUND: Pegylated liposomes are stable, long-circulating carriers useful for delivering doxorubicin to tumor sites with a lower toxicity than the free drug.
  • Free doxorubicin is used in several treatment protocols for non-Hodgkin's lymphoma.
  • Although pegylated liposomal doxorubicin is currently used in the treatment of Kaposi's sarcoma, no data are available for tumors, such as primary cutaneous T-cell lymphomas (CTCLs).
  • Six patients (1 woman and 5 men) aged 59 to 78 years with relapsing or recalcitrant CTCL of the mycosis fungoides type, stage (Ib/IIb), were treated with pegylated liposomal doxorubicin to induce a clinical response.
  • The drug was administered at a dosage of 20 mg m(-2) once a month.
  • There was no need of additional therapy because of side effects.
