ImmunoGen Announces Results from the Phase 3 MIRASOL Trial Selected as Late-Breaking Presentation for ASCO 2023 Annual Meeting

Data from Confirmatory Trial to be Highlighted in Oral Presentation on Sunday, June 4

WALTHAM, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--May 9, 2023-- ImmunoGen, Inc. (Nasdaq: IMGN), a leader in the expanding field of antibody-drug conjugates (ADCs) for the treatment of cancer, today announced that results from the Phase 3 confirmatory MIRASOL trial (GOG 3045/ENGOT OV-55) evaluating the safety and efficacy of ELAHERE® (mirvetuximab soravtansine-gynx) compared to chemotherapy in patients with folate receptor alpha (FRα)-positive platinum-resistant ovarian cancer, have been selected for a late-breaking oral presentation at the 2023 American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) Annual Meeting taking place June 2-6, 2023 in Chicago, Illinois.

"We are honored that MIRASOL has been selected as a late-breaker presentation at ASCO, and pleased that we will be able to share the results from the trial so quickly after they became available," said Anna Berkenblit, MD, Senior Vice President and Chief Medical Officer of ImmunoGen. "Having demonstrated a statistically significant and clinically meaningful improvement in overall survival compared to investigator's choice of single-agent chemotherapy, I believe ELAHERE has the potential to be practice changing in FRα-positive, platinum-resistant ovarian cancer."

ELAHERE® is a registered trademark of ImmunoGen, Inc.


ELAHERE (mirvetuximab soravtansine-gynx) is a first-in-class ADC comprising a folate receptor alpha-binding antibody, cleavable linker, and the maytansinoid payload DM4, a potent tubulin inhibitor designed to kill the targeted cancer cells.

ELAHERE is indicated for the treatment of adult patients with folate receptor-alpha (FRα) positive, platinum-resistant epithelial ovarian, fallopian tube, or primary peritoneal cancer, who have received one to three prior systemic treatment regimens. Select patients for therapy based on an FDA-approved test.

This indication is approved under accelerated approval based on tumor response rate and durability of response. Continued approval for this indication may be contingent upon verification and description of clinical benefit in a confirmatory trial.

Eye problems are common with ELAHERE and can be severe. ELAHERE also can cause severe or life-threatening inflammation of the lungs that may lead to death and patients may develop nerve problems called peripheral neuropathy during treatment. Please see full Prescribing Information, including Boxed Warning, and Medication Guide for ELAHERE.

These statements include, but are not limited to, the potential of ELAHERE to change how FRα-positive, platinum-resistant ovarian cancer is treated.
