Micro Needle Array-Doxorubicin (MNA-D) in Patients With Cutaneous T-cell Lymphoma (CTCL) (MNA-D)

This study is currently recruiting participants.

The study hypothesis is that in situ MNA-directed chemo-immunotherapy using doxorubicin will kill tumor cells locally and alter the tumor microenvironment to induce durable systemic tumor-specific immunity.

The purpose of this study is to test a new method of experimental treatment for CTCL, using small adhesive-like patches (a micro-needle applicator or MNA for short), which have dozens of very small micro-needles loaded with extremely low doses of doxorubicin, a chemotherapy agent. The overall goal of this study is to test the safety and effectiveness of these patches. We also want to determine which micro-dose of the drug is the best to achieve the best response. To make sure that we observe the effects of the very low dose of the drug and not the MNA patch itself, we will also use a placebo (a patch without drug in some patients) in addition to the doxorubicin coated patches. We will thoroughly evaluate the skin where the patches are applied. Once the best dose is determined for use in the patch, we will also begin to look at how well the patches work in clearing the skin.
