Chronic graft-versus-host disease (cGVHD) is a multiorgan disorder with skin manifestations resembling scleroderma. Since photopheresis, a treatment that induces an anticlonotypic immune response, has proven to be effective in both cutaneous T cell lymphomas with circulating clonal T cells and in cGVHD, we have searched for circulating clonal T cell populations in patients with cGVHD, and determined whether T cell clonality in the blood is associated with therapeutic response. We screened blood… CONTINUE READING
