We report two cases of severe refractory progressive chronic graft- versus-host disease (cGvHD) which improved dramatically after extracorporeal photochemotherapy. This procedure, based on functional changes of lymphocytes induced by 8-methoxypsoralen and UVA administered to leukapheresis collections, could be a useful treatment for cGvHD, even after many years of unsuccessful immunosuppressive approaches.

Abstract

We report two cases of severe refractory progressive chronic graft- versus-host disease (cGvHD) which improved dramatically after extracorporeal photochemotherapy. This procedure, based on functional changes of lymphocytes induced by 8-methoxypsoralen and UVA administered to leukapheresis collections, could be a useful treatment for cGvHD, even after many years of unsuccessful immunosuppressive approaches.
