Mogamulizumab – 2018 Pipeline Review

Mogamulizumab is a humanized monoclonal antibody being developed by Kyowa Hakko Kirin Co., Ltd. for the treatment of cutaneous and peripheral T-cell lymphomas, T-cell leukemia, and T-cell lymphomas. Mogamulizumab has shown promising efficacy in treating Cutaneous T-Cell Lymphoma (CTCL) in a phase III trial. The FDA granted mogamulizumab a Breakthrough Therapy Designation on August 25, 2017 for the treatment of Sezary Syndrome and Mycosis Fungoides. The drug candidate was also granted Priority Review for its cutaneous T-cell lymphoma indication on November 28, 2017, with an anticipated PDUFA date of June 4, 2018. Given the results of the MAVORIC study, it is anticipated that the FDA will approve mogamulizumab for second line treatment of cutaneous T-cell lymphomas before the end of June this year.

On August 8, 2018 the FDA approved mogamulizumab-kpkc (Poteligeo ®) for the treatment of adult patients with relapsed or refractory mycosis fungoides or Sézary syndrome after at least one prior systemic therapy. The original PDUFA date of June 4, 2018 had been extended to September 4, 2018 due to additional documentation related to the manufacturing section of the BLA submitted by Kyowa Hakko Kirin during the review process.
