This Phase 3 study is designed to compare the efficacy and safety of mirvetuximab soravtansine vs. investigator's choice chemotherapy in patients with platinum-resistant high-grade epithelial ovarian cancer, primary peritoneal, or fallopian tube cancer, whose tumors express a high-level of FRα. Patients will be, in the opinion of the Investigator, appropriate for single-agent therapy for their next line of therapy. Folate receptor alpha (FRα) positivity will be defined by the Ventana FOLR1 (FOLR1-2.1) CDx assay.

Aspartate aminotransferase (AST) and alanine aminotransferase (ALT) ≤ 3.0 x ULN 6.

Patients or their legally authorized representative must be willing and able to sign the informed consent form (ICF) and to adhere to the protocol requirements 15. Women of childbearing potential (WCBP) must agree to use highly effective contraceptive method(s) (as defined in Section 5.9.6 in the protocol) while on study drug and for at least 3 months after the last dose of MIRV or at least 6 months after the last dose of paclitaxel, pegylated liposomal doxorubicin, or topotecan 16. WCBP must have a negative pregnancy test within 4 days prior to the first dose of study drug

Exclusion Criteria

  1. Patients with endometrioid, clear cell, mucinous, or sarcomatous histology, mixed tumors containing any of the above histologies, or low-grade or borderline ovarian tumor 2. Patients with primary platinum-refractory disease, defined as disease that did not respond to or has progressed within 3 months of the last dose of first line platinum-containing chemotherapy 3. Patients with prior wide-field RT affecting at least 20% of the bone marrow 4. Patients with > Grade 1 peripheral neuropathy per CTCAE v5.0 5. Patients with active or chronic corneal disorders, history of corneal transplantation, or active ocular conditions requiring ongoing treatment/monitoring such as uncontrolled glaucoma, wet age-related macular degeneration requiring intravitreal injections, active diabetic retinopathy with macular edema, macular degeneration, presence of papilledema, and /or monocular vision 6. Patients with serious concurrent illness or clinically relevant active infection, including, but not limited to the following: 1. Active hepatitis B or C infection (whether or not on active antiviral therapy) 2. HIV infection 3. Cytomegalovirus infection 4. Any other concurrent infectious disease requiring IV antibiotics within 2 weeks before starting study drug 7. Patients with history of multiple sclerosis or other demyelinating disease and/or Lambert-Eaton syndrome (paraneoplastic syndrome) 8. Patients with clinically significant cardiac disease including, but not limited to, any one of the following: 1. Myocardial infarction ≤ 6 months prior to first dose 2. Unstable angina pectoris 3. Uncontrolled congestive heart failure (New York Heart Association > class II) 4. Uncontrolled ≥ Grade 3 hypertension (per CTCAE) 5. Uncontrolled cardiac arrhythmias 9. Patients assigned to PLD stratum only: Left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF) below the institutional limit of normal as measured by echocardiography (ECHO) or multigated acquisition (MUGA) scan 10. Patients with a history of hemorrhagic or ischemic stroke within six months prior to randomization 11. Patients with a history of cirrhotic liver disease (Child-Pugh Class B or C) 12. Patients with a previous clinical diagnosis of non-infectious interstitial lung disease (ILD), including noninfectious pneumonitis 13.

ArmDescriptionAssigned Intervention
mirvetuximab soravtansine (MIRV; IMGN853)
MIRV 6 mg/kg adjusted ideal body weight (AIBW) every 3 weeks (Q3W)
  • Drug: Mirvetuximab Soravtansine
    Mirvetuximab soravtansine is an antibody drug conjugate designed to target folate receptor α (FRα). It consists of the humanized anti-FRα mAb M9346A attached via a cleavable disulfide linker to the cytotoxic maytansinoid, DM4.
    Other names:
    • MIRV
    • IMGN853
Active Comparator
Investigator's choice of chemotherapy
Paclitaxel (Pac; 80 mg/m2) administered once per week (QW) within a 4-week cycle Pegylated liposomal doxorubicin (PLD; 40 mg/m2) administered every 4 weeks (Q4W) Topotecan (Topo; 4 mg/m2) administered either on Days 1, 8, and 15 every 4 weeks or for 5 consecutive days (1.25 mg/m2 Days 1-5) every 3 weeks (Q3W)
  • Drug: Paclitaxel
    Paclitaxel is a taxane that can stabilize microtubules to inhibit cell division. It was approved for treatment of recurrent epithelial ovarian cancer.
  • Drug: Topotecan
    Topotecan induces irreversible DNA damage. It inhibits topoisomerase 1, leading to both single and double strand DNA break that eventually promote apoptosis. Topotecan was approved for treatment of epithelial ovarian cancer after failure of initial or subsequent chemotherapy.
  • Drug: Pegylated liposomal doxorubicin
    Pegylated liposomal doxorubicin is a standard chemotherapy regimen used for treating platinum-resistant ovarian cancer. The active component doxorubicin is an anthracycline that intercalates DNA, leading to inhibition of replication and subsequently, the inhibition of proper cell division.
