CCR4 is an important target for mycosis fungoides (MF) and Sézary syndrome (SS)1-3

CCR4 receptors are highly expressed on the surface of malignant T-cells in all patients with MF and SS, regardless of stage or skin and blood involvement.

POTELIGEO is a nonchemotherapeutic biologic therapy that uniquely targets CCR4+ T cells for destruction via antibody-dependent cellular cytotoxicity (ADCC)4-6

POTELIGEO is a humanized mAb that depletes malignant T cells by targeting CCR4 and enhancing ADCC.4

In the MAVORIC trial, although CCR4 testing was not a requirement for inclusion4:

75% of patients (Stage IB-IV) tested for CCR4. 100% tested had CCR4 on ≥1% of lymphocytes. 96% tested had CCR4 on ≥10% of lymphocytes.

CCR4=C-C chemokine receptor type 4; mAb=monoclonal antibody

Progression-free survival (PFS) was the primary endpoint measured in the MAVORIC Trial4

Indication

POTELIGEO® (mogamulizumab-kpkc) injection for intravenous infusion is indicated for the treatment of adult patients with relapsed or refractory mycosis fungoides (MF) or Sézary syndrome (SS) after at least one prior systemic therapy.

Important Safety Information

Warnings and Precautions

Dermatologic toxicity: Monitor patients for rash throughout the course of treatment. For patients who experienced dermatologic toxicity in Trial 1, the median time to onset was 15 weeks, with 25% of cases occurring after 31 weeks. Interrupt POTELIGEO for moderate or severe rash (Grades 2 or 3). Permanently discontinue POTELIGEO for life-threatening (Grade 4) rash or for any Stevens-Johnson syndrome (SJS) or toxic epidermal necrolysis (TEN).

Infusion reactions: Most infusion reactions occur during or shortly after the first infusion. Infusion reactions can also occur with subsequent infusions. Monitor patients closely for signs and symptoms of infusion reactions and interrupt the infusion for any grade reaction and treat promptly. Permanently discontinue POTELIGEO for any life-threatening (Grade 4) infusion reaction.

Infections: Monitor patients for signs and symptoms of infection and treat promptly.

Autoimmune complications: Interrupt or permanently discontinue POTELIGEO as appropriate for suspected immune-mediated adverse reactions. Consider the benefit/risk of POTELIGEO in patients with a history of autoimmune disease.

Complications of allogeneic HSCT after POTELIGEO: Increased risks of transplant complications have been reported in patients who received allogeneic HSCT after POTELIGEO. Follow patients closely for early evidence of transplant-related complications.

Adverse Reactions

The most common adverse reactions (reported in ≥10% of patients) with POTELIGEO in the clinical trial were rash, including drug eruption (35%), infusion reaction (33%), fatigue (31%), diarrhea (28%), drug eruption (24%), upper respiratory tract infection (22%), musculoskeletal pain (22%), skin infection (19%), pyrexia (17%), edema (16%), nausea (16%), headache (14%), thrombocytopenia (14%), constipation (13%), anemia (12%), mucositis (12%), cough (11%), and hypertension (10%).

You are encouraged to report suspected adverse reactions to Kyowa Kirin, Inc. at 1-844-768-3544 or FDA at 1-800-FDA-1088 or www.fda.gov/medwatch.
