About POTELIGEO® (mogamulizumab)
POTELIGEO® is a humanized monoclonal antibody (mAb) directed against CC chemokine receptor 4 (CCR4), which is frequently expressed on leukemic cells of certain haematologic malignancies including cutaneous T-cell lymphoma (CTCL). POTELIGEO® uses Kyowa Kirin’s proprietary POTELLIGENT® technology, which enhances antibody-dependent cellular cytotoxicity (ADCC).
In August 2018, POTELIGEO® was approved in the U.S. for the treatment of adult patients with relapsed or refractory MF or SS after at least one prior systemic therapy.
The European Commission (EC) granted marketing authorisation for POTELIGEO® in November 2018 for the treatment of adult patients with MF or SS who have received at least one prior systemic therapy.
