Brief Summary:

PROMPT: a study of photopheresis for the treatment of erythrodermic mycosis fungoides and Sézary syndrome

For this study, the investigators invite patients suffering from erythrodermic mycosis fungoides (MF) and Sézary syndrome (SS) whose skin symptoms have not responded to other types of treatment prescribed by their doctors (symptoms came back or got worse) as well as patients that never received any treatment.

Patients will be treated with photopheresis every two weeks for the first three months, thereafter once monthly. One treatment cycle consists of 2 day treatment in a row. After 6 months of treatment, treatment can be given every 5 to 8 weeks.

During the photopheresis procedure, the patient's blood is collected into a specialized machine (THERAKOS CELLEX) that separates the white blood cells from the other blood components. The other blood components are returned to the patient and white blood cells are then treated with the drug methoxsalen, which makes them sensitive to ultraviolet light. The treated white blood cells are exposed to ultraviolet A (UVA) irradiation inside the machine, and then returned to the patient.

As photopheresis has been used worldwide for more than 30 years, each hospital has developed their own guidelines (e.g. which patients, frequency, etc). Recently, experts in the field have developed a guidance which will now be tested in this study.


Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Lymphoma, T-Cell, Cutaneous Mycosis Fungoides/Sezary Syndrome Drug: Methoxsalen Device: THERAKOS CELLEX Photopheresis System Phase 2

Study Type : Interventional  (Clinical Trial)
Estimated Enrollment : 46 participants
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: A Prospective, Multicenter, Single-Arm Cohort Study of Photopheresis in the Treatment of Erythrodermic MF and SS
Estimated Study Start Date : December 1, 2018
Estimated Primary Completion Date : September 1, 2021
Estimated Study Completion Date : June 1, 2025


Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Methoxsalen with the THERAKOS CELLEX Photopheresis System
Treatment will be performed according to a predefined protocol based on the consensus guidelines in patients with MF/SS. Treatment should be administered for one year unless confirmed disease progression or unless other criteria for treatment discontinuation are met as specified in the protocol.
Drug: Methoxsalen

Methoxsalen is used in conjunction with the THERAKOS CELLEX Photopheresis System.

During each photopheresis treatment with methoxsalen, the dosage of methoxsalen is calculated according to the treatment volume (which is displayed on the display panel of the instrument) using the formula:

Treatment volume x 0.017 ml of methoxsalen (20 µg/mL) for each treatment For example: Treatment volume = 240 mL x 0.017 = 4.1 mL of methoxsalen (20 µg/mL)

Other Name: Uvadex

Device: THERAKOS CELLEX Photopheresis System
Methoxsalen is used in conjunction with the THERAKOS CELLEX Photopheresis System.




Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Success rate of treatment (photopheresis) [ Time Frame: From treatment start up to 9 months for each patient ]

    The primary endpoint is defined as successful use of photopheresis performed according to the study protocol based on the consensus guidelines.

    At 9 months time point after the initiation of photopheresis, evaluation of each patient will be performed. A patient will be declared a success with respect to the primary endpoint if she/he fulfills:

    1. Patient has received the full protocol treatment
    2. No progressive disease within the first 3 months after of the initiation of photopheresis.
    3. No need for add-on (combination) treatment within the first 3 months after the initiation of photopheresis according to investigators decision.
    4. Not experiencing any medical event (other than progressive disease) necessitating termination of photopheresis or interruption for more than 3 continuous months within the 6 months period


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Progression Free Survival, according to EORTC-International Society of Cutaneous Lymphoma (ISCL)-United States Cutaneous Lymphoma Consortium (USCLC) criteria [ Time Frame: From the first patient treatment start till 9 months as of LPI ]
    From treatment start to progression

  2. Best overall response rates, according to EORTC-ISCL-USCLC criteria [ Time Frame: From the first patient treatment start till 9 months as of LPI ]

    Overall response rate is defined as the proportion of patients with global response score equal to complete response (CR) or partial response (PR) according to EORTC-ISCL-USCLC criteria.

    Global Response Score

    CR - Complete disappearance of all clinical evidence of disease; Skin: CR, Nodes/Blood/Viscera: All categories have CR/Not Indicated

    PR - Regression of measurable disease; Skin: CR, Nodes/Blood/Viscera: All categories do not have a CR/ Not Indicated and no category has a PD or Skin: PR, Nodes/Blood/Viscera: No category has a PD and if any category involved at baseline, at least one has a CR or PR


  3. Number of treatment cycles required to obtain remission [ Time Frame: From the first patient treatment start till 9 months as of LPI ]
    Number of treatment cycles (including the add-on therapies) received by patients to obtain remission

  4. Time to response (CR/PR) [ Time Frame: From the first patient treatment start till 9 months as of LPI ]
    From treatment start to progression

  5. Duration of response [ Time Frame: From the first patient treatment start till 9 months as of LPI ]
    From response to progression

  6. Frequency and type of of add-on therapies [ Time Frame: From the first patient treatment start till 9 months as of LPI ]
    Frequency and type of add-on therapies received by patients. The add-on could consist any systemic or skin directed therapies that is considered to be active in or given with the intent to treat MF/SS.

  7. Quality of life measurements [ Time Frame: From the first patient treatment start till 9 months as of LPI ]

    Skin disease-specific Skindex-29 and the Functional Assessment of Cancer Therapy in General (FACT-G)

    SKINDEX-29: Symptoms scale ranging from: Very little, Mild, Moderate, Severe, Extreme

    FACT G: 5-point Likert scale ranging from 0 (Not at all) to 4 (Very much)


  8. Occurrence of adverse events [ Time Frame: From the first patient treatment start till 9 months as of LPI ]
    The study uses the International Common Terminology Criteria for Adverse Events (CTCAE), version 5.0, for adverse event reporting.

  9. Overall survival (OS) [ Time Frame: From the first patient treatment start till 3 years as of LPI ]
    Registration till the date of death from any cause

  10. Time to initiation of add-on therapies [ Time Frame: From the first patient treatment start till 9 months as of LPI ]
    Time to initiation of add-on therapies will be measured from the date of treatment start to the date that add-on therapies initiated
