Primary cutaneous T-cell lymphomas (CTCL) are non-Hodgkin lymphomas usually running an indolent course. However, some patients progress to tumor stages or leukemic phase for which no curative treatment is available. Although initial response rates are high, remissions are often short-lived. Recent reports suggest a potential curative role for allogeneic stem cell transplantation (alloSCT). We searched databases for genetically randomized controlled trials (RCT) comparing alloSCT with… CONTINUE READING
