Abstract

This is an interim report of a double-blind multi-institutional study to examine the effect of chemotherapeutic agents applied topically to patients with mycosis fungoides. To date, 41 patch tests have been completed using 15 drugs. Five of the drugs produced some improvement, four were highly irritating, and six had no effect. This patch-testing study is a prelude to more extensive therapy trials.
