    Folliculotropic Mycosis Fungoides Associated with Autoimmune Hepatitis.
    Acta Dermatovenerol Croat 2017 Oct;25(3):248-250
    Prof. Romana Čeović, MD, PhD, University Hospital Center Zagreb, Department of Dermatology and Venereology School of Medicine, University of Zagreb, 10000 Zagreb, Šalata 4, Croatia;
    Dear Editor, the association between lymphomas and autoimmune manifestations, as well as the prevalence of the cases of coexistent lymphomas and autoimmune conditions, has not been completely established (1-3). Since cutaneous T-cell lymphoma (CTCL) cases are rare, any hypothesis can only be based on case reports or small case series. We present the case of a male patient with folliculotropic mycosis fungoides (FMF) and synchronous autoimmune hepatitis (AIH) with extremely high levels of cancer antigen 19-9 (CA 19-9). Read More

    Analysis of CTCL cell lines reveals important differences between mycosis fungoides/Sézary syndrome vs. HTLV-1+ leukemic cell lines.
    Oncotarget 2017 Nov 7;8(56):95981-95998. Epub 2017 Oct 7.
    Division of Dermatology, McGill University, Montréal, Québec, Canada.
    HTLV-1 is estimated to affect ~20 million people worldwide and in ~5% of carriers it produces Adult T-Cell Leukemia/Lymphoma (ATLL), which can often masquerade and present with classic erythematous pruritic patches and plaques that are typically seen in Mycosis Fungoides (MF) and Sézary Syndrome (SS), the most recognized variants of Cutaneous T-Cell Lymphomas (CTCL). For many years the role of HTLV-1 in the pathogenesis of MF/SS has been hotly debated. In this study we analyzed CTCL vs. Read More

    Department of Dermatology, Aarhus University Hospital, Aarhus, Denmark.
    Mycosis fungoides (MF) is the most frequent form of cutaneous T-cell lymphoma. The disease often takes an indolent course, but in approximately one third of the patients, the disease progresses to an aggressive malignancy with a poor prognosis. At the time of diagnosis, it is impossible to predict which patients develop severe disease and are in need of aggressive treatment. Read More

    Therapeutic and prognostic significance of PARP-1 in advanced mycosis fungoides and Sezary syndrome.
    Exp Dermatol 2017 Dec 5. Epub 2017 Dec 5.
    Department of Dermatology, University of Pittsburgh, Pittsburgh, PA, USA.
    While mycosis fungoides (MF) is typically an indolent malignancy, it may infrequently undertake an aggressive course. We used proteomic analyses to identify a biomarker of the aggressive course of MF. Results of this investigation demonstrated that PARP-1, heat-shock protein family A (Hsp70) member 1 like (HSAP1L), Hsp70 member 1A (HSPA1A), ATP-depending RNA helicase (DDX17) and the α-isoform of lamina-associated polypeptide 2 (TMPO) had higher expression in aggressive disease versus non-aggressive.

    Therapeutic reduction of cell-mediated immunosuppression in mycosis fungoides and Sézary syndrome.
    Cancer Immunol Immunother 2017 Dec 4. Epub 2017 Dec 4.
    Department of Dermatology, University of Pittsburgh, Suite 500.68 Medical Arts Building, 3708 Fifth Avenue, Pittsburgh, PA, 15213, USA.
    Tumor progression is associated with progressive immunosuppression mediated in part by T regulatory cell(s) (Treg) and/or myeloid-derived suppressor cell(s) (MDSC). Development of strategies to reduce populations of immune cells with suppressive function in cancer patients may enable the induction or recovery of immunity against tumor cells, which may limit or reverse disease progression. With a goal of developing Treg and MDSC neutralizing strategies to treat mycosis fungoides (MF) and Sézary syndrome (SzS), we determined the association between disease stage and suppressor cell populations in patients with MF/SzS, including those responding to therapy.
