  • Mirvetuximab soravtansine-gynx is a ADC comprising a FRα-directed antibody and DM4 as payload.
  • High FRα expression is noted in ~35-40% of platinum-resistant high-grade serous ovarian cancer.
  • Mirvetuximab  showed an objective response rate of about 30-35% in platinum-resistant high-grade serous ovarian cancer with high FRα tumor expression.
  • A promising activity mirvetuximab splus bevacizumab was observed in platinum-resistant ovarian cancer, regardless of level of FRα expression or prior bevacizumab exposure.
  • Emerging data highlighted the promising role of mirvetuximab in combination with carboplatin and bevacizumab in platinum-sensitive ovarian cancer patients.
