What is Poteligeo?

Poteligeo is an FDA (U.S. Food and Drug Administration) approved marketed by Kyowa Kirin, Inc. Poteligeo is a CC chemokine receptor type 4 (CCR4)- directed monoclonal antibody used for the treatment of adult patients with relapsed or refractory mycosis fungoides or Sézary syndrome after at least one prior systemic therapy.

Mycosis fungoides and Sézary syndrome are rare diseases and are hard-to-treat types of cutaneous T-cell lymphoma (CTCL), a type of non-Hodgkin lymphoma, in which lymphocytes (white blood cells) become cancerous and affect the skin. Poteligeo is more effective than vorinostat, for the treatment of either mycosis fungoides or Sezary syndrome.

What doses of Poteligeo are available?

Poteligeo is available in injection form, in the following doses: 20 mg/5 mL (4 mg/mL) solution in a single-dose vial.

The recommended dosage is 1 mg/kg as an intravenous infusion over at least 60 minutes on days 1, 8, 15, and 22 of the first 28-day cycle and on days 1 and 15 of each subsequent cycle.

Always speak with a healthcare professional for medical advice or about any changes to your dose so they can monitor and evaluate your condition.
