Answer

Participation in a clinical trial as a treatment option for all patients with SS or advanced-stage MF is recommended by both the NCCN and EOTRTC.  [123, 124]  Treatment for SS or erythrodermic MF (stage IV) is palliative. The preferred modality is ECP, either alone or in combination with other treatments. [123, 124, 125]
