IMGN151-1001: This study is evaluating a new drug (called IMGN151) in people with recurrent endometrial cancer, or recurrent, high-grade serous epithelial ovarian cancer, primary peritoneal, or fallopian tube cancersA Phase 1, First-in-Human, Open-Label, Dose-Escalation and Expansion Study of IMGN151 (Anti-FRα Antibody-drug Conjugate) in Adult Patients With Recurrent Endometrial Cancer and Recurrent, High-Grade Serous Epithelial Ovarian, Primary Peritoneal, or Fallopian Tube Cancers

Clinical summary


This study is investigating how safe, tolerable and what the preliminary anti-tumour activity is, of IMGN151 - which is an anti-folate receptor alpha (FRα) antibody-drug conjugate (ADC).

The study has two phases: Dose Escalation and Expanion.

In the Dose Escalation Phase, all participants will be assigned sequentially to one of up to eight dose levels. IMGN151 is administered via intravenous (IV) infusion on Day 1 of Cycle 1, and every subsequent 21-day cycle thereafter, at the assigned dose for each cohort.

Once the recommended Phase 2 dose is identified, an Expansion Phase of the study will enrol participants into cohorts of either endometrial cancer or platinum-resistant ovarian cancer.

Infusion duration will vary depending on dose and participant tolerability.


This trial is treating patients with recurrent endometrial cancer, or recurrent high-grade serous epithelial ovarian, primary peritoneal or fallopian tube cancers

Scientific Title

A Phase 1, First-in-Human, Open-Label, Dose-Escalation and Expansion Study of IMGN151 (Anti-FRα Antibody-drug Conjugate) in Adult Patients With Recurrent Endometrial Cancer and Recurrent, High-Grade Serous Epithelial Ovarian, Primary Peritoneal, or Fallopian Tube Cancers



  1. Patients ≥ 18 years of age
  2. Patients must have an Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group Performance Status (ECOG PS) of 0 or 1.
  3. Dose-Escalation Phase: Patients must have a confirmed diagnosis of recurrent endometrial cancer or high-grade serous epithelial ovarian cancer (EOC), primary peritoneal, or fallopian tube cancer.
  4. Expansion Phase: Patients must have a confirmed diagnosis of recurrent endometrial cancer or platinum-resistant, high-grade serous epithelial ovarian cancer (PROC), primary peritoneal, or fallopian tube cancer.

    Note: Progression should be calculated from the date of the last administered dose of platinum therapy to the date of the radiographic imaging showing progression.

  5. Prior anticancer therapy

    1. For Expansion Phase: Patients must have recurrent endometrial cancer or patients with PROC must have received 1-4 prior systemic lines of therapy.
    2. Neoadjuvant ± adjuvant therapies are considered 1 line of therapy.
    3. Maintenance therapy (eg, bevacizumab or poly [ADP-ribose] polymerase [PARP] inhibitors) will be considered part of the preceding line of therapy (ie, not counted independently).
    4. Therapy changed due to toxicity in the absence of progression will be considered part of the same line (ie, not counted independently).
    5. Hormonal therapy will be counted as a separate line of therapy unless it was given as maintenance.
  6. Evaluable lesions

    1. Dose-Escalation Phase: Patients may have radiologically evaluable or nonevaluable disease.
    2. Expansion Phase: Patients must have at least 1 lesion that meets the definition of measurable disease by RECIST v1.1 (radiologically measured by the investigator).
  7. Patients must be willing to provide an archival tumor tissue block or slides or to undergo a procedure to obtain a new biopsy using a low-risk, medically routine procedure for retrospective IHC confirmation of FRα status.
  8. Patients must have completed prior therapy within the specified times below:

    1. Systemic antineoplastic therapy within 5 half-lives or 4 weeks (whichever is shorter) before the first dose of IMGN151
    2. Focal radiation completed at least 2 weeks before the first dose of IMGN151
  9. Patients must have stabilized or recovered (Grade 1 or baseline) from all prior therapy-related toxicities (except alopecia).
  10. Patients must have completed any major surgery at least 4 weeks before the first dose of IMGN151 and have recovered or stabilized from the side effects of prior surgery before the first dose of IMGN151.
  11. Patients must have adequate hematologic, liver, and kidney functions defined as follows:

    1. Absolute neutrophil count (ANC) ≥ 1.5 ×10 9/L (1500/μL) without granulocyte colony-stimulating factor (G-CSF) in the prior 10 days or long-acting white blood cell growth factors in the prior 20 days
    2. Platelet count ≥ 100 × 10 9/L (100,000/μL) without platelet transfusion in the prior 10 days
    3. Hemoglobin ≥ 9.0 g/dL without packed red blood cell transfusion in the prior 21 days
    4. Estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) ≥ 60 mL/min/1.73 m2 or an estimated creatinine clearance of ≥ 60 mL/min
    5. Aspartate aminotransferase (AST) and alanine aminotransferase (ALT) ≤ 3.0 × upper limit of normal (ULN)
    6. Serum bilirubin ≤ 1.5 × ULN (patients with documented diagnosis of Gilbert syndrome are eligible if total bilirubin < 3.0 × ULN)
    7. Serum albumin ≥ 2 g/dL
  12. Patients must be willing and able to sign the informed consent form (ICF) and to adhere to the protocol requirements.
  13. Females of childbearing potential (FOCBP) must agree to use highly effective contraceptive method(s) while on IMGN151 and for at least 3 months after the last dose.
  14. FOCBP must have a negative serum pregnancy test at Screening and a negative serum or urine pregnancy test within 72 hours before the first dose of IMGN151.
