ImmunoGen Presents Additional Efficacy and Safety Analyses Evaluating Mirvetuximab Soravtansine in Ovarian Cancer at ASCO

ImmunoGen, Inc. (Nasdaq: IMGN), a leader in the expanding field of antibody-drug conjugates (ADCs) for the treatment of cancer, today announced additional efficacy data from the pivotal SORAYA study evaluating mirvetuximab soravtansine (mirvetuximab) monotherapy in patients with folate receptor alpha (FR?)-high platinum-resistant ovarian cancer who have been previously treated with Avastin® (bevacizumab) and an integrated safety summary of single-agent mirvetuximab across multiple studies in patients with FR?-positive recurrent ovarian cancer. These findings will be highlighted in two posters at the 2022 American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) Annual Meeting, which is being held June 3-7, 2022. The data from SORAYA have been selected for the Best of ASCO® Program.

"Treatment options remain limited for patients with platinum-resistant ovarian cancer, particularly for those who have received prior bevacizumab, and are associated with low response rates, short durations of response, and considerable toxicities," said Anna Berkenblit, MD, Senior Vice President and Chief Medical Officer of ImmunoGen. "We believe these data further reinforce mirvetuximab's potential to become a new standard of care in this population. With our biologics license application accepted and filed by FDA with Priority Review, we look forward to bringing mirvetuximab to patients with the most urgent need later this year."

SORAYA enrolled 106 platinum-resistant ovarian cancer patients with high FR? expression who have been previously treated with 1 to 3 prior systemic treatments, at least one of which included bevacizumab. The primary endpoint was confirmed objective response rate (ORR) as assessed by investigator. Secondary endpoints included duration of response (DOR) as assessed by investigator, CA-125 response, safety and tolerability, progression-free survival (PFS), overall survival (OS); ORR, DOR, and PFS by blinded independent central review were sensitivity analyses. Data from SORAYA were first presented at the Society of Gynecologic Oncology (SGO) 2022 Annual Meeting; the updated analyses to be presented at ASCO are based on the 120-day cut-off date of April 29, 2022.

"I believe these additional analyses from SORAYA further support mirvetuximab's potential to become the first biomarker-directed agent indicated for patients with platinum-resistant ovarian cancer," said Ursula Matulonis, MD, Chief of the Division of Gynecologic Oncology at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, Professor of Medicine at the Harvard Medical School, and SORAYA Co-Principal Investigator. "The tumor reduction observed in over 70% of patients, along with the PFS curve and the preliminary median overall survival of 13.8 months, are impressive. If approved, I look forward to being able to offer mirvetuximab to my patients and continuing to support its further development in patients with ovarian cancer."

This retrospective pooled analysis included 464 patients with FR?-positive, recurrent ovarian cancer across three studies: a Phase 1 first-in-human trial, the Phase 3 FORWARD I trial, and the pivotal Phase 3 SORAYA trial.

"Having personally treated over 100 patients with mirvetuximab, I have helped my colleagues better understand how to manage the associated ocular events," said Kathleen Moore, Director of the Oklahoma TSET Phase I Program, Professor of the Section of Gynecologic Oncology at The University of Oklahoma College of Medicine, and MIRASOL Principal Investigator. "With prevention and mitigation strategies in place, patients presenting with ocular events have been able to complete their treatment, maintain their responses, and had no permanent sequelae from these events. These data demonstrate mirvetuximab's differentiated safety profile and I look forward to the potential approval and launch later this year."

The following posters will be available on Saturday, June 4 in the ASCO Meeting Library:

Mirvetuximab soravtansine (IMGN853) is a first-in-class ADC comprising a folate receptor alpha-binding antibody, cleavable linker, and the maytansinoid payload DM4, a potent tubulin-targeting agent, to kill the targeted cancer cells.

ImmunoGen is developing the next generation of antibody-drug conjugates (ADCs) 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 NOWtm.
