On November 14, 2022, the FDA granted accelerated approval to mirvetuximab soravtansine-gynx for treatment of adult patients with folate receptor-α (FRα)-positive, platinum-resistant epithelial ovarian, fallopian tube, or primary peritoneal cancer who have received one to three prior systemic therapies. The VENTANA FOLR1 (FOLR-2.1) RxDx Assay was approved as a companion diagnostic device to select patients for this indication. Approval was based on Study 0417 (SORAYA, NCT04296890), a single-arm, multicenter trial. In 104 patients with measurable disease who received mirvetuximab soravtansine-gynx, the overall response rate was 31.7% [95% confidence interval (CI), 22.9–41.6] with a median duration of response of 6.9 months (95% CI, 5.6–9.7). Ocular toxicity was included as a Boxed Warning in the U.S. Prescribing Information (USPI) to alert providers of the risks of developing severe ocular toxicity including vision impairment and corneal disorders. Pneumonitis and peripheral neuropathy were additional important safety risks included as Warnings and Precautions in the USPI. This is the first approval of a targeted therapy for FRα-positive, platinum-resistant ovarian cancer and the first antibody–drug conjugate approved for ovarian cancer. This article summarizes the favorable benefit–risk assessment leading to FDA's approval of mirvetuximab soravtansine-gynx.
