Abstract LBA32


Recurrent or metastatic cervical cancer (r/mCC) is a global medical problem with few effective treatments, especially in the second- or third-line settings where available therapies have very limited activity. The phase 2 study innovaTV 204 was conducted to assess the potential of tisotumab vedotin, a tissue factor–directed antibody–drug conjugate, to address this high unmet need in patients with r/mCC.


Patients with r/mCC with disease progression on or after doublet chemotherapy with bevacizumab (if eligible by local standards) and ≤2 prior systemic regimens received tisotumab vedotin 2.0 mg/kg IV once every 3 weeks until disease progression or unacceptable toxicity. The primary endpoint was confirmed objective response rate (cORR) as assessed by independent review committee (IRC). Secondary endpoints included duration of response (DOR), time to response (TTR), and progression-free survival (PFS) by IRC, overall survival (OS), and safety.


Of 101 patients treated (median 6 doses), median age was 50 years, 68% had squamous histology, and 63% received bevacizumab plus doublet chemotherapy as first-line treatment. cORR (IRC) was 24%, including 7% with complete response (CR) (Table). Disease control rate (DCR) was 72%. At a median follow-up of 10 months the median DOR was 8.3 months, median PFS was 4.2 months, and median OS was 12.1 months. Response rates were generally consistent across subgroups explored. The most common treatment-related adverse events (TRAEs) were alopecia (38%), epistaxis (30%), and nausea (27%). Grade 3 ocular, bleeding, and peripheral neuropathy TRAEs (prespecified adverse events of interest) occurred in 2%, 2%, and 7% of patients, respectively. Table: LBA32

cORR,* n (%; 95% CI) 24 (24; 15.9-33.3)
CR, n (%) 7 (7)
PR, n (%) 17 (17)
SD, n (%) 49 (49)
PD, n (%) 24 (24)
NE, n (%) 4 (4)
DCR,† n (%; 95% CI) 73 (72; 62.5-80.7)
Median DOR (95% CI), months 8.3 (4.3–not reached)
Median TTR (range), months 1.4 (1.1-5.1)
Median PFS (95% CI), months 4.2 (3.2-4.6)
Median OS (95% CI), months 12.1 (9.6-13.9)

*Assessed using RECIST v1.1. †Patients with a confirmed response (CR or PR confirmed at ≥4 wk later) or SD (measured ≥5 wk after first tisotumab vedotin dose). PR, partial response; SD, stable disease; PD, progressive disease; NE, not evaluable.


Tisotumab vedotin demonstrated durable, clinically meaningful activity in a broad patient population, with a manageable and tolerable safety profile. Tisotumab vedotin has the potential to be a new therapy for patients with r/mCC.
