Mechlorethamine Induced Contact Dermatitis Avoidance Study


Brief description of study

This is a two-arm, open-label study that aims to compare the incidence and severity of the most common adverse reactions, particularly contact dermatitis, when Valchlor is used alone or in conjunction with triamcinolone ointment 0.1% in early stage MF subjects (Stage IA and IB) for a period of 4 months.

Detailed Study Description

Mechlorethamine hydrochloride, or most commonly known as nitrogen nitrogen mustard, was approved by the FDA in 2013 for the treatment of IA and IB Mycosis Fungoides. The most common side effect of Valchlor is a skin rash, which is routinely ameliorated with the application of topical corticosteroids, such as topical Triamcinolone. The main purpose of this study is to determine the efficacy of Triamcinolone in reducing side effects cause by Valchlor and further understand the nature of this skin rash.

This is a split-face study, meaning that subjects will receive both therapies, but limit use to designated areas. Treatment lasts 4 months with follow ups at 5 and 12 months.
