Further study details as provided by University of Pittsburgh:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Proteomics of Cutaneous T-cell lymphoma [ Time Frame: Ongoing ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Proteomic variables will be measured in blood and tissue of consented CTCL patients.

Biospecimen Retention:   Samples Without DNA

White blood cells and/or skin biopsy tissue are retained.

Estimated Enrollment: 200
Study Start Date: October 2004
Estimated Study Completion Date: January 2023
Estimated Primary Completion Date: January 2022 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Groups/Cohorts Assigned Interventions
Those subjects with cutaneous t-cell lymphoma and Sezary syndrome
Other: Blood draw or skin biopsy
Up to 9 blood draws/year of 60 ml of whole blood. One 6 mm punch biopsy may be obtained up to 4 times per year.

Detailed Description:

The purpose of this study is to provide a central mechanism for monitoring access to peripheral blood and skin specimens obtained from CTCL patients to monitor:

  • immunologic assays/flow cytometry
  • tumor progression/regression
  • genomic studies
  • proteomic studies
  • others germane to the advancement of CTCL treatment

Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years and older
Genders Eligible for Study:   Both
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No
Sampling Method:   Non-Probability Sample
Study Population

Subjects with cutaneous t-cell lymphoma and/or Sezary syndrome


Inclusion Criteria:

  • 18 or older
  • able and willing to provide informed consent
  • diagnosed with CTCL

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Lack of CTCL diagnosis in medical record
