Genmab’s TIDVAK receives FDA approval

Genmab and Pfizer have announced that the FDA has approved the supplemental Biologics License Application for TIVDAK for the treatment of patients with recurrent or metastatic cervical cancer with disease progression on or after chemotherapy.

This FDA action converts the September 2021 accelerated approval of TIVDAK to a full approval. TIVDAK is the first antibody-drug conjugate (ADC) with demonstrated overall survival data to be granted full FDA approval in this patient population.

TIVDAK is the first antibody-drug conjugate (ADC) with demonstrated overall survival data to be granted full FDA approval in this patient population.”

“The full FDA approval of TIVDAK represents a significant achievement for women with recurrent and metastatic cervical cancer, reinforcing TIVDAK as a treatment option that has proven to extend survival in patients whose disease has advanced after initial treatments,” says Jan van de Winkel, CEO of Genmab. “This milestone underscores the importance of our ongoing clinical development program to assess the full potential of tisotumab vedotin as a treatment option in other indications.”

Based on results from the Phase 3 innovaTV 301 clinical trial

The approval is based on results from the global, randomized, Phase 3 innovaTV 301 clinical trial , in which TIVDAK met its primary endpoint of overall survival (OS) in patients with previously treated recurrent or metastatic cervical cancer compared to chemotherapy. Secondary endpoints of progression-free survival (PFS) and a confirmed objective response rate (ORR) were also met. The innovaTV 301 study met its primary endpoint of OS, demonstrating a 30% reduction in the risk of death compared with chemotherapy. Median OS for patients treated with TIVDAK was 11.5 months versus chemotherapy 9.5 months.

The safety profile of TIVDAK in innovaTV 301 was consistent with its known safety profile as presented in the U.S. prescribing information which includes a BOXED WARNING for Ocular Toxicity. No new safety issues were identified. The most common (≥25%) adverse reactions, including laboratory abnormalities, in patients receiving TIVDAK were hemoglobin decreased (41%), peripheral neuropathy (38%), conjunctival adverse reactions (37%), aspartate aminotransferase increased (34%), nausea (33%), alanine aminotransferase increased (30%), fatigue (28%), sodium decreased (27%), epistaxis (26%), and constipation (25%).
