Mogamulizumab (USAN; trade name Poteligeo) is a humanized monoclonal antibody targeting CC chemokine receptor 4 (CCR4). It was approved in Japan in 2012 for the treatment of relapsed or refractory adult T-cell leukemia/lymphoma.[1]

Mogamulizumab was developed by Kyowa Hakko Kirin Co., Ltd.[2] It has also been licensed to Amgen for development as a therapy for Asthma.[3]

In 2016 it was in phase 1 clinical trials in combination with utomilumab (PF-05082566) for solid cancers.[4]
