Serum Protein Patterns in Participants With Mycosis Fungoides/Cutaneous T-Cell Lymphoma, Psoriasis, or Normal Skin
RATIONALE: The presence of specific serum proteins may allow a doctor to determine if a patient has mycosis fungoides/cutaneous T-cell lymphoma.
PURPOSE: This clinical trial is studying how well blood protein analysis detects mycosis fungoides/cutaneous T-cell lymphoma.
|Study Design:||Primary Purpose: Diagnostic|
|Official Title:||Characterization of Serum Proteomic Patterns in Neoplastic and Inflammatory Skin Disease|
|Study Start Date:||June 2003|
|Study Completion Date:||March 2010|
|Primary Completion Date:||December 2007 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)|
- Determine whether computer-assisted, higher-order analysis of participant low molecular weight serum proteins can detect distinctive proteomic patterns in participants with normal skin vs mycosis fungoides/cutaneous T-cell lymphoma vs psoriasis.
- Determine whether these proteomic patterns can distinguish between various stages of cutaneous T-cell lymphoma.
OUTLINE: This is a pilot study.
Participants complete a general and skin health questionnaire and undergo a whole-body skin examination. Blood samples are taken and analyzed for low molecular weight serum proteins by mass spectroscopy.
PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 141-423 participants (47-94 each of healthy volunteers, psoriasis patients, and T3 cutaneous T-cell lymphoma patients and 141 T1, T2, and T4 mycosis fungoides patients) will be accrued for this study within 3 years.
