Scandinavian Mycosis Fungoides Trial

  • K. Thomsen

Abstract

The Scandinavian Mycosis Fungoides Group was founded in 1974. It is a multi-center study group with the aim of evaluating new treatment modalities as well as establishing diagnostic criteria and prognostic factors in the cutaneous T cell lymphoma mycosis fungoides (MF). Eighteen dermatologic departments in Denmark, Norway, and Sweden participate in this study. By January 1981 a total of 169 patients have been registered by the group and have received treatment according to one or more treatment protocols accepted by the participating departments.
