The Cutaneous Lymphoma Foundation funded an important epidemiology study that shows that the number of new cases of CTCL has doubled. In this study, Drs. Vincent Criscione and Martin Weinstock of Brown University report that there are approximately 1,600 new cases of CTCL diagnosed each year in the United States. This represents over double the number of new cases in the past fifteen years. Click here to read more.
Dr. Marie-France Demierre of Boston University School of Medicine, Director of Skin Oncology, collaborated with the Cutaneous Lymphoma Foundation on an extremely important study, that of our patients’ health-related quality of life. Health-related quality of life is a multidimensional term that includes the physical, functional, psychological, social health, and well-being of the individual. Click here to read more.
