The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has recommended that ImmunoGen, Inc. conduct a new phase 3 randomized trial to evaluate the safety and efficacy of mirvetuximab soravtansine (IMGN853) in patients with high folate receptor alpha (FRα)-positive, platinum-resistant ovarian cancer.
The approval was based on data from the IMpower 150 trial, an open-label study involving 1202 patients with stage IV metastatic NSq NSCLC who had not received prior chemotherapy for metastatic disease, but could have received prior EGFR or ALK kinase inhibitor if appropriate, regardless of PD-L1 or T-effector gene status and ECOG performance status 0 or 1.
Mirvetuximuab soravtansine uses a humanized FRα-binding antibody to target antibody-drug conjugates specifically to FRα-expressing cancer cells and a potent anti-tumor agent, DM4, to kill the targeted cancer cells.
