ImmunoGen Enters into Clinical Research Collaboration with Merck

ImmunoGen, Inc. and Merck have entered into a clinical research collaboration for the assessment of ImmunoGen's mirvetuximab soravtansine in combination with Merck's anti-PD-1 therapy, Keytruda, or pembrolizumab, for the treatment of patients with FR¦Á-positive ovarian cancer. ImmunoGen is conducting a Phase Ib/II clinical trial, FORWARD II, that evaluates mirvetuximab soravtansine for FR¦Á-positive ovarian cancer used in doublet combination with other anticancer agents. The assessment of mirvetuximab soravtansine with Keytruda will be added to this trial, with Merck supplying the Keytruda. ImmunoGen expects this cohort to open for patient enrollment in the second half of 2016. The agreement is between ImmunoGen and Merck, through a subsidiary. The agreement includes a provision for potential expansion of the collaboration to include a subsequent Phase III clinical trial. ImmunoGen developed mirvetuximab soravtansine as a potential treatment for ovarian cancer and other FR¦Á-positive solid tumors. In early clinical testing, mirvetuximab soravtansine demonstrated notable activity when used as a single agent to treat platinum-resistant FR¦Á-positive ovarian cancer. ImmunoGen is assessing the ADC used as a single agent for pretreated FR¦Á-positive ovarian cancer in its Phase II trial, FORWARD I, which is intended to support an Accelerated Approval pathway. Mirvetuximab soravtansine is also now being assessed in separate combinations with pegylated liposomal doxorubicin (Doxil), bevacizumab (Avastin), and carboplatin in the Phase Ib/II trial, FORWARD II.
