CTCL is a type of non-Hodgkin lymphoma, a condition in which lymphocytes, a type of white blood cell, become cancerous and affect the skin. "Treatment options for patients with CTCL have been limited because it is a rare disease," said Judy Jones, the founder and President of the Cutaneous Lymphoma Foundation. "We are thrilled about the FDA's decision to approve the new THERAKOS(TM) CELLEX(TM) Photopheresis System, which will give patients suffering from painful skin lesions an important new therapeutic option." The Cutaneous Lymphoma Foundation is an independent, non-profit patient advocacy organization and provides educational programs which are partially supported by industry partners. In the past, they have received educational grants from Therakos, Inc.

Therakos, Inc. currently markets the world's only approved integrated systems for extracorporeal photopheresis. "The new features of the THERAKOS(TM) CELLEX(TM) Photopheresis System were designed specifically to create a better treatment experience for both patients and the health care professionals administering the therapy," stated Michael Yang, General Manager of Therakos, Inc. "This new system is an example of a medical device and a drug therapy combining in a unique and innovative way to deliver favorable outcomes for patients."

In April 2008, the THERAKOS(TM) CELLEX(TM) Photopheresis System received a CE Mark for use in Europe and in January 2009 it received regulatory clearance from Health Canada.
