Answer

Treatment for early stage CTCLs includes topical therapies with or without interferon alpha (IFN-α) or oral agents, whereas advanced-stage patients are treated with chemotherapy and novel agents. Multiagent cytotoxic regimens may be palliative but seem to lack a demonstrated survival benefit. [6]
