Study Summary

This trial is testing a new combo of drugs to treat ovarian cancer that has come back or hasn't respond to other treatments.

Who is the study for?
This trial is for women with advanced-stage ovarian, fallopian tube, or primary peritoneal cancer who haven't had previous systemic anti-cancer therapy. They must have high-grade serous epithelial ovarian cancer that's positive for FRα expression and be fit enough to undergo chemotherapy and surgery. Women of childbearing potential must use effective contraception and not be pregnant or breastfeeding.Check my eligibility
What is being tested?
The study tests a combination of Carboplatin with Mirvetuximab Soravtansine (MIRV) in patients whose tumors over-express the FRα receptor. Participants will receive this treatment every three weeks before surgery, followed by additional cycles after surgery. The option to add Bevacizumab or maintenance therapy later on is at the physician's discretion.See study design
What are the potential side effects?
Potential side effects may include reactions related to the immune system due to monoclonal antibodies like MIRV, liver or kidney function issues from Carboplatin, as well as general side effects from chemotherapy such as fatigue, nausea, and increased risk of infection.
