The Dermatologist. 2019.

In a 2019 study, it was concluded that “low-dose, low-frequency oral psoralen-UV-A treatment, followed by maintenance, appeared to be safe and effective and can be used to treat early-stage mycosis fungoides.” This study proved that PUVA treatment of mycosis fungoides can be highly effective and identified potential biomarkers for therapeutic response. It was also found that this treatment regimen could extend the disease-free period of remission.
