ImmunoGen Announces Accelerated Approval Pathway for Mirvetuximab Soravtansine in Ovarian Cancer
Top-Line Data from New Pivotal Single-Arm Trial, SORAYA, Expected in First Half of 2021
Confirmatory MIRASOL Trial for Mirvetuximab on Track to Start by Year-End
Conference Call to be Held at
“We have engaged in constructive discussions with
ImmunoGen’s mirvetuximab program now includes two new trials, SORAYA and MIRASOL, which will enroll concurrently.
SORAYA: Pivotal Trial
SORAYA is a single-arm trial with mirvetuximab that will enroll approximately 100 patients. Eligibility criteria include patients with platinum-resistant ovarian cancer whose tumors express high levels of FRα using the PS2+ scoring method, and who have been treated with up to three prior regimens – at least one of which included bevacizumab. The primary endpoint of this study is overall response rate by investigator assessment and the key secondary endpoint is duration of response.
MIRASOL: Confirmatory Trial
MIRASOL is a randomized Phase 3 trial in which 430 patients will be randomized 1:1 to receive either mirvetuximab or investigator’s choice of single-agent chemotherapy (weekly paclitaxel, pegylated liposomal doxorubicin, or topotecan). Eligibility criteria include patients with platinum-resistant ovarian cancer whose tumors express high levels of FRα using the PS2+ scoring method, and who have been treated with up to three prior regimens. The primary endpoint of this study is progression free survival by investigator assessment. The key secondary endpoints include: overall response rate, overall survival, and patient-reported outcomes.
“We have reviewed the data generated from our Phase 1 and FORWARD I studies using the PS2+ scoring method and have identified 70 patients who would meet the key eligibility criteria for SORAYA. The overall response rate in these patients was 31.4% with 95% CI (20.9%, 43.6%) and a median duration of response of 7.8 months with 95% CI (3.98, -),” said
Berkenblit continued, “Replicating these data in SORAYA would support an application for accelerated approval in advance of the completion of MIRASOL, which would thereafter provide the randomized data needed for conversion to full approval. We are delighted to advance both studies as soon as possible.”

ABOUT MIRVETUXIMAB SORAVTANSINE
Mirvetuximab soravtansine (IMGN853) is the first folate receptor alpha (FRα)-targeting ADC. It uses a humanized FRα-binding antibody to target the ADC specifically to FRα-expressing cancer cells and a potent anti-tumor agent, DM4, to kill the targeted cancer cells.
ImmunoGen is developing the next generation of antibody-drug conjugates to improve outcomes for cancer patients. By generating targeted therapies with enhanced anti-tumor activity and favorable tolerability profiles, we aim to disrupt the progression of cancer and offer our patients more good days. We call this our commitment to “target a better now.”
