A Phase 1b/2 Study to Evaluate the Safety, Tolerability and Pharmacokinetics of Mirvetuximab Soravtansine (IMGN853) in Combination With Bevacizumab, Carboplatin, Pegylated Liposomal Doxorubicin, Pembrolizumab, or Bevacizumab+Carboplatin in Adults With Folate Receptor Alpha Positive Advanced Epithelial Ovarian Cancer, Primary Peritoneal Cancer or Fallopian Tube Cancer

Trial ID # NCT02606305; FORWARD II-2
Phase Ib/II
Drug Class Angiogenesis Inhibitors: VEGF
Drug Name Bevacizumab
Alternate Drug Names immunoglobulin G1 (human-mouse monoclonal rhuMab-VEGF gamma-chain, anti-VEGF monoclonal antibody, Avastin
Drugs in Trial Bevacizumab, Mirvetuximab soravtansine
Eligible Participant

Platinum sensitive FRalpha+ ovarian cancer; IHC: ≥ 25% tumor cells at ≥ 2+ intensity

Patients Enrolled


Therapy Setting


Study Design

Open-Label, Non-randomized


ORR, DoR, PFS, evaluated per RECIST


Exploratory analysis: FRalpha high (IHC: ≥ 75% tumor cells at ≥ 2+ intensity)


ORR: 48%
DoR: 12.7 months
PFS: 9.6 months

Exploratory analysis, FRalpha high (n=16):
ORR: 69%; DoR: 12.7 months; PFS: 13.3 months

Clinically Significant Adverse Events

Serious AE:
Grade 3-4 AE: hypertension (12%), myelosuppression (10%)


The combination of mirvetuximab soravtansine with bevacizumab demonstrates an encouraging ORR in platinum sensitive patients with high FRalpha expression
