Approved drug
mirvetuximab soravtansine is an approved drug (FDA (2022))
Compound class: Antibody
Comment: Mirvetuximab soravtansine (IMGN853) is an antibody-drug conjugate (ADC) that delivers the cytotoxic maytansinoid DM4 (a microtubule toxin) to cancer cells that express the folate receptor α (FOLR1; P15328) [2]. FOLR1 is an active oncology drug target [8]. Mirvetuximab soravtansine has proven particularly effective against FLOR1 +ve, advanced ovarian tumours [1,4,7].
The chemical structure of DM4 and its sulfo-SPDB linker is represented in PubChem CID 131704480.
