Brief Summary:
The purpose of this study is to provide an opportunity for patients who exhibit progressive disease while receiving placebo on the companion 93-04-11 study to receive ONTAK. It is also designed to determine the effectiveness of ONTAK in Cutaneous T-cell Lymphoma (CTCL) patients whose tumors do not express CD25.
