2.4 Instructions for Preparation and Administration

  • Administer TIVDAK as an intravenous infusion only.
  • TIVDAK is a hazardous drug. Follow applicable special handling and disposal procedures1.
  • DO NOT administer TIVDAK as an intravenous push or bolus.
  • DO NOT mix TIVDAK with, or administer as an infusion with, other medicinal products.

Use appropriate aseptic technique for reconstitution and preparation of dosing solutions.  Prior to administration, the TIVDAK vial is reconstituted with Sterile Water for Injection, USP. The reconstituted solution is subsequently diluted in an intravenous infusion bag containing one of the following: 5% Dextrose Injection USP, 0.9% Sodium Chloride Injection, USP, or Lactated Ringer’s Injection, USP.

Reconstitution in Single-dose Vial

  1. Calculate the recommended dose based on the patient’s weight to determine the number of vials needed.
  2. Reconstitute each 40 mg vial with 4 mL of Sterile Water for Injection, USP, resulting in 10 mg/mL TIVDAK.
  3. Slowly swirl each vial until the contents are completely dissolved. Allow the reconstituted vial(s) to settle. DO NOT SHAKE THE VIAL. Do not expose to direct sunlight.
  4. Parenteral drug products should be inspected visually for particulate matter and discoloration prior to administration, whenever solution and container permit. The reconstituted solution should be clear to slightly opalescent, colorless to brownish-yellow and free of visible particles. Discard any vial with visible particles or discoloration.
  5. Based upon the calculated dose amount, the reconstituted solution from the vial(s) should be added to the infusion bag immediately. This product does not contain a preservative. If not used immediately, reconstituted vials may be stored for up to 24 hours in refrigeration at 2°C to 8°C (36 °F to 46 °F) or at room temperature up to 25°C (77°F) for up to a maximum of 8 hours prior to dilution. DO NOT FREEZE. Do not expose to direct sunlight.  Discard unused vials with reconstituted solution beyond the recommended storage time.

Dilution in Infusion Bag

  1. Withdraw the calculated dose amount of reconstituted solution from the vial(s) and transfer into an infusion bag.
  2. Dilute TIVDAK with one of the following: 5% Dextrose Injection, USP, 0.9% Sodium Chloride Injection, USP or Lactated Ringer's Injection, USP. The infusion bag size should allow enough diluent to achieve a final concentration of 0.7 mg/mL to 2.4 mg/mL TIVDAK.
  3. Mix diluted solution by gentle inversion. DO NOT SHAKE THE BAG.  Do not expose to direct sunlight.
  4. Visually inspect the infusion bag for any particulate matter or discoloration prior to use. The reconstituted solution should be clear to slightly opalescent, colorless to brownish-yellow and free of visible particles. Discard the infusion bag if particulate matter or discoloration is observed.
  5. Discard any unused portion left in the single-dose vials.

Administration

  1. Confirm administration of steroid and vasoconstrictor eye drops [see Dosage and Administration (2.2)].
  2. Apply cold packs fully over the eyes following administration of the vasoconstrictor eye drops. Change cold packs as needed throughout infusion to ensure eye area remains cold during the entire infusion [see Dosage and Administration (2.2)].
  3. Immediately administer the infusion over 30 minutes through an intravenous line containing a 0.2 µm in-line filter.
  4. If the infusion is not administered immediately, store the diluted TIVDAK solution in refrigeration as specified in Table 3. Discard if storage time exceeds these limits. DO NOT FREEZE. Once removed from refrigeration, complete administration of the diluted infusion solution of TIVDAK within 4 hours (including infusion time).

5 WARNINGS AND PRECAUTIONS

5.1 Ocular Adverse Reactions

TIVDAK can cause severe ocular adverse reactions, including conjunctivitis, keratopathy (keratitis, punctate keratitis, and ulcerative keratitis), and dry eye (increased lacrimation, eye pain, eye discharge, pruritus, irritation, and foreign body sensation), that may lead to changes in vision and/or corneal ulceration.

Ocular adverse reactions occurred in 55% of patients with cervical cancer treated with TIVDAK across clinical trials. The most common ocular adverse reactions were conjunctivitis (32%), dry eye (24%), keratopathy (17%), and blepharitis (5%). Grade 3 ocular adverse reactions occurred in 3.3% of patients, including severe ulcerative keratitis in 1.2% of patients. Nine patients (2.1%) experienced ulcerative keratitis (including one with perforation requiring corneal transplantation), six (1.4%) conjunctival ulcer, four (0.9%) corneal erosion, two (0.5%) conjunctival erosion, and two (0.5%) symblepharon.

The median time to onset of the first ocular adverse reaction was 1.2 months (range, 0-17.1). Of the patients who experienced ocular events, 59% had complete resolution and 31% had partial improvement (defined as a decrease in severity by one or more grades from the worst grade) at last follow up. Ocular adverse reactions led to permanent discontinuation of TIVDAK in 6% of patients with cervical cancer.

In innovaTV 301, 8 (3.2%) patients experienced delayed ocular adverse reactions occurring more than 30 days after discontinuation of TIVDAK. These adverse reactions included 3 patients with ulcerative keratitis, and one patient (each) with keratitis, punctate keratitis and corneal erosion, blepharitis and conjunctival hyperemia, conjunctival scar, and conjunctivitis and xerophthalmia.

Refer patients to an eye care provider to conduct an ophthalmic exam prior to initiation of TIVDAK, prior to every cycle for the first nine cycles, and as clinically indicated. The exam should include visual acuity, slit lamp exam of the anterior segment of the eye, and an assessment of normal eye movement and ocular signs or symptoms which include dry or irritated eyes, eye secretions or blurry vision.

Adhere to the required premedication and eye care before, during, and after infusion to reduce the risk of ocular adverse reactions [see Dosage and Administration (2.2)].

Monitor for ocular toxicity and promptly refer patients to an eye care provider for any new or worsening ocular signs and symptoms. Withhold, reduce, or permanently discontinue TIVDAK based on the severity or persistence of the ocular adverse reaction [see Dosage and Administration (2.3)].

5.2 Peripheral Neuropathy

Peripheral neuropathy occurred in 39% of patients with cervical cancer treated with TIVDAK across clinical trials; 6% of patients experienced Grade 3 peripheral neuropathy. Peripheral neuropathy adverse reactions included peripheral sensory neuropathy (23%), peripheral neuropathy (5%), paresthesia (3.8%), peripheral sensorimotor neuropathy (3.3%), muscular weakness (2.8%), and peripheral motor neuropathy (2.4%). One patient with another tumor type treated with TIVDAK at the recommended dose developed Guillain-Barre syndrome.

The median time to onset of peripheral neuropathy was 2.4 months (range, 0-11.3). Of the patients who experienced peripheral neuropathy, 18% had complete resolution and 21% had partial improvement (defined as a decrease in severity by one or more grades from the worst grade) at last follow up. Peripheral neuropathy led to discontinuation of TIVDAK in 7% of patients with cervical cancer.

Monitor patients for signs and symptoms of neuropathy, such as paresthesia, tingling or a burning sensation, neuropathic pain, muscle weakness, or dysesthesia. For patients experiencing new or worsening peripheral neuropathy, withhold dose, then dose reduce, or permanently discontinue TIVDAK based on the severity of peripheral neuropathy [see Dosage and Administration (2.3)].

5.3 Hemorrhage

Hemorrhage occurred in 51% of patients with cervical cancer treated with TIVDAK across clinical trials. The most common all grade hemorrhage adverse reaction was epistaxis (33%). Grade 3 hemorrhage occurred in 4% of patients.

The median time to onset of hemorrhage was 0.3 months (range, 0-10.4). Of the patients who experienced hemorrhage, 71% had complete resolution and 12% had partial resolution (defined as a decrease in severity by one or more grades from the worst grade) at last follow-up.

Monitor patients for signs and symptoms of hemorrhage. For patients experiencing pulmonary or CNS hemorrhage, permanently discontinue TIVDAK. For grade ≥2 hemorrhage in any other location, withhold until bleeding has resolved, blood hemoglobin is stable, there is no bleeding diathesis that could increase the risk of continuing therapy, and there is no anatomical or pathologic condition that can increase the risk of hemorrhage recurrence. After resolution, either resume treatment or permanently discontinue TIVDAK [see Dosage and Administration (2.3)].

5.4 Pneumonitis

Severe, life-threatening, or fatal pneumonitis can occur in patients treated with antibody drug conjugates containing vedotin including TIVDAK. Among patients with cervical cancer treated with TIVDAK across clinical trials, 4 patients (0.9%) experienced pneumonitis, including 1 patient who had a fatal outcome.

Monitor patients for pulmonary symptoms indicative of pneumonitis. Symptoms may include hypoxia, cough, dyspnea or interstitial infiltrates on radiologic exams. Infectious, neoplastic, and other causes for such symptoms should be excluded through appropriate investigations.

Withhold TIVDAK for patients who develop persistent or recurrent Grade 2 pneumonitis and consider dose reduction. Permanently discontinue TIVDAK in all patients with Grade 3 or 4 pneumonitis [see Dosage and Administration (2.3)].

5.5 Severe Cutaneous Adverse Reactions

Severe cutaneous adverse reactions, including events of fatal or life-threatening SJS, can occur in patients treated with TIVDAK. Severe cutaneous adverse reactions occurred in 1.6% of patients with cervical cancer treated with TIVDAK across clinical trials. Grade ≥3 severe cutaneous adverse reactions occurred in 0.5% of patients, including 1 patient who had a fatal outcome.

Monitor patients for signs or symptoms of severe cutaneous adverse reactions, which include target lesions, worsening skin reactions, blistering or peeling of the skin, painful sores in mouth, nose, throat, or genital area, fever or flu-like symptoms, and swollen lymph nodes. If signs or symptoms of severe cutaneous adverse reactions occur, withhold TIVDAK until the etiology of the reaction has been determined. Early consultation with a specialist is recommended to ensure greater diagnostic accuracy and appropriate management. Permanently discontinue TIVDAK for confirmed Grade 3 or 4 severe cutaneous adverse reactions, including SJS [see Dosage and Administration (2.3)].

5.6 Embryo-Fetal Toxicity

Based on the mechanism of action and findings in animals, TIVDAK can cause fetal harm when administered to a pregnant woman. The small molecule component of TIVDAK, MMAE, administered to rats caused adverse developmental outcomes, including embryo-fetal mortality and structural abnormalities, at exposures below those occurring clinically at the recommended dose.

Advise patients of the potential risk to a fetus. Advise females of reproductive potential to use effective contraception during treatment with TIVDAK and for 2 months after the last dose. Advise male patients with female partners of reproductive potential to use effective contraception during treatment with TIVDAK and for 4 months after the last dose [see Use in Specific Populations (8.1, 8.3), and Clinical Pharmacology (12.1)].

6.1 Clinical Trials Experience

Because clinical trials are conducted under widely varying conditions, adverse reaction rates observed in the clinical trials of a drug cannot be directly compared to rates in the clinical trials of another drug and may not reflect the rates observed in practice.

The data in the WARNINGS AND PRECAUTIONS section reflect exposure to TIVDAK in 425 patients with recurrent or metastatic cervical cancer who received at least one dose of TIVDAK at 2 mg/kg intravenously every 3 weeks in innovaTV 301, innovaTV 204, innovaTV 201 (NCT02001623), innovaTV 202 (NCT02552121), innovaTV 203 (NCT03245736), and innovaTV 206 (NCT03913741). The median duration of treatment with TIVDAK was 3.7 months (range: 0.4-40.2). In this pooled safety population, the most common (≥25%) adverse reactions, including laboratory abnormalities, were hemoglobin decreased (45%), peripheral neuropathy (39%), conjunctival adverse reactions (38%), nausea (37%), fatigue (36%), aspartate aminotransferase increased (33%), epistaxis (33%), alopecia (31%), alanine aminotransferase increased (30%), and hemorrhage (28%).

Drug Interactions

7 DRUG INTERACTIONS

7.1 Effects of Other Drugs on TIVDAK

Strong CYP3A4 Inhibitors
MMAE is a CYP3A4 substrate. Concomitant use of TIVDAK with strong CYP3A4 inhibitors may increase unconjugated MMAE exposure [see Clinical Pharmacology (12.3)], which may increase the risk of TIVDAK adverse reactions. Closely monitor patients for adverse reactions of TIVDAK when used concomitantly with strong CYP3A4 inhibitors.

Use in Specific Populations

8 USE IN SPECIFIC POPULATIONS

8.1 Pregnancy

Risk Summary

Based on the mechanism of action and findings in animals, TIVDAK can cause fetal harm when administered to a pregnant woman [see Clinical Pharmacology (12.1)]. There are no available human data on TIVDAK use in pregnant women to inform a drug-associated risk.  In an animal reproduction study, administration of the small molecule component of TIVDAK, MMAE, to pregnant rats during organogenesis caused embryo-fetal mortality and structural abnormalities at exposures below the clinical exposure at the recommended dose (see Data). Advise patients of the potential risk to a fetus.

The background risk of major birth defects and miscarriage for the indicated population is unknown. In the U.S. general population, the estimated background risk of major birth defects and miscarriage in clinically recognized pregnancies is 2%-4% and 15%-20%, respectively.

Data
Animal Data

No embryo-fetal development studies in animals have been performed with tisotumab vedotin-tftv. In an embryo-fetal development study in pregnant rats, administration of two intravenous doses of MMAE, the small molecule component of TIVDAK, on gestational days 6 and 13 caused embryo-fetal mortality and structural abnormalities, including protruding tongue, malrotated limbs, gastroschisis, and agnathia compared to controls at a dose of 0.2 mg/kg (approximately 0.5-fold the human area under the curve [AUC] at the recommended dose).

8.2 Lactation

Risk Summary

There are no data on the presence of tisotumab vedotin-tftv in human milk, the effects on the breastfed child, or the effects on milk production. Because of the potential for serious adverse reactions in a breastfed child, advise lactating women not to breastfeed during treatment with TIVDAK and for 3 weeks after the last dose.

8.3 Females and Males of Reproductive Potential

TIVDAK can cause fetal harm when administered to a pregnant woman [see Use in Specific Populations (8.1)].

Pregnancy testing

Verify pregnancy status in females of reproductive potential prior to initiating TIVDAK treatment.

Contraception

Females

Advise females of reproductive potential to use effective contraception during treatment with TIVDAK and for 2 months after the last dose.

Males

Advise male patients with female partners of reproductive potential to use effective contraception during treatment with TIVDAK and for 4 months after the last dose.

Infertility

Females

Based on findings in animal studies with MMAE-containing antibody-drug conjugates (ADCs), TIVDAK may impair female fertility. The effect on fertility is reversible [see Nonclinical Toxicology (13.1)].

Males

Based on findings from animal studies, TIVDAK may impair male fertility [see Nonclinical Toxicology (13.1)].

8.4 Pediatric Use

Safety and effectiveness of TIVDAK in pediatric patients have not been established.

8.5 Geriatric Use

Of the 425 patients with cervical cancer treated with TIVDAK across clinical trials, 14% were ≥65 years of age and 2.4% were ≥75 years of age. Grade ≥3 adverse reactions occurred in 60% of patients ≥65 years and in 55% of patients <65 years. Drug was discontinued due to an adverse reaction in 25% of patients ≥65 years and in 13% of patients <65 years. Clinical studies of TIVDAK did not include sufficient numbers of patients 65 years of age and older to determine whether they respond differently from younger patients.

8.6 Hepatic Impairment

Avoid use of TIVDAK in patients with moderate or severe hepatic impairment [aspartate aminotransferase (AST) > 3 x upper limit of normal (ULN) or total bilirubin > 1.5 × ULN] [see Clinical Pharmacology (12.3)].

In patients with mild hepatic impairment (total bilirubin ≤ ULN and AST >ULN or total bilirubin > 1 to 1.5 × ULN and any AST), closely monitor patients for adverse reactions of TIVDAK, but no dosage adjustment in the starting dose of TIVDAK is recommended.

Description

11 DESCRIPTION

Tisotumab vedotin-tftv is a Tissue Factor (TF) directed antibody drug conjugate (ADC) comprised of a human anti-TF IgG1-kappa antibody conjugated to the microtubule-disrupting agent monomethyl auristatin E (MMAE) via a protease-cleavable vc (valine-citrulline) linker. The monoclonal antibody is produced in a mammalian cell line (Chinese hamster ovary). MMAE and the linker are produced by chemical synthesis. Each monoclonal antibody molecule carries an average of 4 MMAE molecules. Tisotumab vedotin-tftv has an approximate molecular weight of 153 kDa. The chemical structure is as follows:

                                                                                      Figure 1. Structural Formula

Structural Formula

TIVDAK (tisotumab vedotin-tftv) for injection, is provided as a sterile, preservative-free, white to off-white lyophilized cake or powder in a single-dose vial for infusion after dilution. Following reconstitution with 4 mL of Sterile Water for Injection, a clear to slightly opalescent, colorless to brownish-yellow solution containing 10 mg/mL tisotumab vedotin-tftv is produced [see Dosage and Administration (2.3)]. Each mL of reconstituted solution contains 10 mg of tisotumab vedotin-tftv, d-mannitol (30 mg), l-histidine (2.11 mg), l-histidine monohydrochloride (3.44 mg), and sucrose (30 mg), at pH 6.0.

Clinical Pharmacology

12 CLINICAL PHARMACOLOGY

12.1 Mechanism of Action

Tisotumab vedotin-tftv is a tissue factor (TF)-directed antibody drug conjugate (ADC). The antibody is a human IgG1 directed against cell surface TF. TF is the primary initiator of the extrinsic blood coagulation cascade. The small molecule, MMAE, is a microtubule-disrupting agent, attached to the antibody via a protease-cleavable linker. Nonclinical data suggests that the anticancer activity of tisotumab vedotin-tftv is due to the binding of the ADC to TF expressing cancer cells, followed by internalization of the ADC-TF complex, and release of MMAE via proteolytic cleavage. MMAE disrupts the microtubule network of actively dividing cells, leading to cell cycle arrest and apoptotic cell death. In vitro, tisotumab vedotin-tftv also mediates antibody-dependent cellular phagocytosis and antibody-dependent cellular cytotoxicity.

12.2 Pharmacodynamics

Tisotumab vedotin-tftv exposure-response relationships and the time course of pharmacodynamics response have not been fully characterized.

Cardiac Electrophysiology

At the recommended dose, tisotumab vedotin-tftv had no large mean effect on QTc prolongation (>20 msec).

12.3 Pharmacokinetics

Table 8 summarizes the exposure parameters of tisotumab vedotin-tftv and unconjugated MMAE (the cytotoxic component of tisotumab vedotin-tftv) following administration of one 3-week cycle of tisotumab vedotin-tftv 2 mg/kg to patients. Tisotumab vedotin-tftv concentrations peaked near the end of the infusion, while unconjugated MMAE concentrations peaked approximately 2 to 3 days after tisotumab vedotin-tftv dosing. Tisotumab vedotin-tftv Cmax increased proportionally, while AUC0-last increased in a more than dose-proportional manner, after a single dose ranging from 0.3–2.2 mg/kg (0.15 to 1.1 times the approved recommended dose). There was no accumulation of tisotumab vedotin-tftv and unconjugated MMAE. Steady-state concentrations of tisotumab vedotin-tftv and unconjugated MMAE were reached after 1 treatment cycle.

AUC 57.5 (13.4) day*μg/mL 50 (35.8) day*ng/mL

Distribution

The tisotumab vedotin-tftv steady state volume of distribution is 7.83 (%CV: 19.1) L. Plasma protein binding of MMAE ranged from 68% to 82%, in vitro.

Elimination

The median terminal half-life of tisotumab vedotin-tftv and unconjugated MMAE is 4.04 (range: 2.26-7.25) days and 2.56 (range: 1.81-4.10) days, respectively. The linear clearance of tisotumab vedotin-tftv and unconjugated MMAE was 1.54 (%CV: 28.8) L/day and 45.9 (%CV: 61.1) L/day, respectively. Elimination of MMAE appeared to be limited by its rate of release from tisotumab vedotin-tftv. 

Metabolism

Tisotumab vedotin-tftv is expected to undergo catabolism to small peptides, amino acids, unconjugated MMAE, and unconjugated MMAE-related catabolites. Tisotumab vedotin-tftv releases unconjugated MMAE via proteolytic cleavage, and unconjugated MMAE is primarily metabolized by CYP3A4 in vitro.

Excretion

The excretion of tisotumab vedotin-tftv is not fully characterized. Following a single-dose of another ADC that contains MMAE, 17% of the total MMAE administered was recovered in feces and 6% in urine over a 1-week period, primarily as unchanged drug. A similar excretion profile of MMAE is expected after tisotumab vedotin-tftv administration.

Specific Populations

No clinically significant differences in the pharmacokinetics of tisotumab vedotin-tftv were observed based on age (21 to 81 years), sex, race (white vs non-white) or ethnicity (Hispanic or Latino vs non-Hispanic or non-Latino). No clinically significant differences in exposures of tisotumab vedotin-tftv and unconjugated MMAE were observed in patients with mild to moderate renal impairment (CLcr 30 to < 90 mL/min using the Cockcroft-Gault equation) compared to patients with normal renal function. The effect of severe renal impairment (CLcr 15 to < 30 mL/min) or end-stage renal disease with or without dialysis on pharmacokinetics of tisotumab vedotin-tftv and unconjugated MMAE is unknown.

Patients with Hepatic Impairment

Unconjugated MMAE exposures were 37% higher, but there were no clinically significant differences in exposures of tisotumab vedotin-tftv in patients with mild hepatic impairment compared to patients with normal hepatic function. The effect of moderate or severe hepatic impairment or liver transplantation on the pharmacokinetics of tisotumab vedotin-tftv or unconjugated MMAE is unknown.

Drug Interaction Studies

Clinical Studies

No clinical studies evaluating the drug-drug interaction potential of tisotumab vedotin-tftv have been conducted. To characterize the drug-drug interaction potential of unconjugated MMAE, clinical studies with another ADC that contains MMAE are described below, and similar effects on tisotumab vedotin-tftv and unconjugated MMAE exposures are expected with concomitant use of TIVDAK.

There were no clinically significant differences in midazolam (sensitive CYP3A4 substrate) pharmacokinetics when used concomitantly with another ADC that contains MMAE. 

Strong CYP3A4 Inhibitors: Ketoconazole (strong CYP3A4 inhibitor) used concomitantly with another ADC that contains MMAE increased unconjugated MMAE C­max by 25% and AUC by 34%, with no change in ADC exposure.

Strong CYP3A4 Inducers: Rifampin (strong CYP3A4 inducer) used concomitantly with another ADC that contains MMAE decreased unconjugated MMAE Cmax by 44% and AUC by 46%, with no change in ADC exposure.

In Vitro Studies

Cytochrome P450 (CYP) Enzymes: MMAE does not inhibit CYP1A2, CYP2B6, CYP2C8, CYP2C9, CYP2C19, or CYP2D6.  MMAE did not induce any major CYP450 enzymes in human hepatocytes.

Transporter Systems: MMAE is a substrate of P-glycoprotein (P-gp), but not an inhibitor of P-gp.

12.6 Immunogenicity

The observed incidence of anti-drug antibodies (ADA) is highly dependent on the sensitivity and specificity of the assay. Differences in assay methods preclude meaningful comparisons of the incidence of ADA in the studies described below with the incidence of ADA in other studies, including those of TIVDAK or of other tisotumab vedotin products.

In patients with recurrent or metastatic cervical cancer who were treated with TIVDAK 2 mg/kg every 3 weeks for up to 19 months (innovaTV 301) and 40 months (innovaTV 204), the incidence of anti-tisotumab vedotin-tftv antibody formation was 5.7% (12/211) and 5.4% (5/93), respectively.  The incidence of neutralizing anti-tisotumab vedotin-tftv antibody formation was 0% (0/211) in innovaTV 301 using cell-based assay, and the incidence was 2.2% (2/93) in innovaTV 204 using Enzyme-linked Immunosorbent Assay (ELISA)-based assay. Given the low number of patients who developed anti-tisotumab vedotin-tftv antibodies, no conclusions can be drawn concerning a potential effect of immunogenicity on pharmacokinetics, efficacy or safety.

Nonclinical Toxicology

13 NONCLINICAL TOXICOLOGY

13.1 Carcinogenesis, Mutagenesis, Impairment of Fertility

Carcinogenicity studies in animals have not been performed with tisotumab vedotin-tftv or MMAE.

MMAE was positive for genotoxicity in the in vivo rat bone marrow micronucleus study through an aneugenic mechanism. MMAE was not mutagenic in the bacterial reverse mutation (Ames) assay or the L5178 TK+/- mouse lymphoma forward mutation assay.

Fertility studies with tisotumab vedotin-tftv or MMAE have not been conducted. However, results of a repeat-dose toxicity study in monkeys indicate the potential for tisotumab vedotin-tftv to impair male reproductive function and fertility.  

In a repeat-dose toxicology study conducted in monkeys for 13 weeks, doses ≥1 mg/kg tisotumab vedotin-tftv (≥0.6 times the human exposure [AUC] at the recommended dose) resulted in decreased testicular size and seminiferous tubule atrophy, reduction or absence in sperm count, and decreased sperm motility. Findings of sperm absence and decreased motility did not reverse by the end of the recovery period at doses ≥3 mg/kg (≥1.7 times the human exposure [AUC] at the recommended dose).

MMAE-containing ADCs have been associated with adverse ovarian effects when administered to sexually immature animals. Adverse effects included decrease in, or absence of, secondary and tertiary ovarian follicles after weekly administration to cynomolgus monkeys in studies of 4-week duration. These effects showed a trend towards recovery 6 weeks after the end of dosing; no changes were observed in primordial follicles.

Clinical Studies

14 CLINICAL STUDIES

14.1 Recurrent or Metastatic Cervical Cancer

innovaTV 301

The efficacy of TIVDAK was evaluated in innovaTV 301 (NCT04697628), an open-label, active-controlled, multicenter, randomized trial that enrolled 502 patients with recurrent or metastatic cervical cancer who had received one or two prior systemic therapy regimens in the recurrent or metastatic setting, including chemotherapy with or without bevacizumab and/or an anti-PD-(L)1 agent. Patients were excluded if they had active ocular surface disease, any prior episode of cicatricial conjunctivitis or ocular SJS, Grade ≥2 peripheral neuropathy, or clinically significant bleeding issues or risks.

Patients were randomized (1:1) to receive either TIVDAK 2 mg/kg intravenously every 3 weeks (n=253) or investigator’s choice of chemotherapy (n=249) consisting of topotecan, vinorelbine, gemcitabine, irinotecan or pemetrexed, until unacceptable toxicity or disease progression. Randomization was stratified by prior treatment with bevacizumab (yes or no), prior anti-PD-(L)1 therapy (yes or no), region (US, Europe, or Other), and ECOG performance status (0 or 1).

Patients were treated until disease progression or unacceptable toxicity. Tumor response assessments were performed every 6 weeks for the first 30 weeks and every 12 weeks thereafter.

The major efficacy outcome measure was overall survival (OS). Additional efficacy outcome measures were progression free survival (PFS) and confirmed objective response rate (ORR) as assessed by investigator using RECIST v1.1.

The median age was 50 years (range: 26 to 80); 49% were White, 36% were Asian, 10% were not reported, 3% were American Indian or Alaskan Native, and 2% were Black; 20% were Hispanic/Latino; and baseline ECOG performance status was 0 (54%) or 1 (46%). Sixty-three percent of patients had squamous cell carcinoma, 32% had adenocarcinoma, and 5% had adenosquamous histology. Ninety percent of patients had extrapelvic disease; 61% of patients had received 1 prior line of systemic therapy, and 38% had 2 prior lines of systemic therapy. All patients received prior chemotherapy; 64% received prior bevacizumab and 27% received prior anti-PD-1 or anti-PD-L1 therapy. Patients on the control arm received gemcitabine (44%), pemetrexed (32%), topotecan (8%), vinorelbine (7%), or irinotecan (6%).

Statistically significant improvements in OS, PFS, and ORR were demonstrated for TIVDAK compared with chemotherapy.

innovaTV 204

The efficacy of TIVDAK was evaluated in innovaTV 204 (NCT03438396), an open-label, multicenter, single-arm trial that treated 101 patients with recurrent or metastatic cervical cancer who had received no more than two prior systemic regimens in the recurrent or metastatic setting, including at least one prior platinum-based chemotherapy regimen. Patients were excluded if they had active ocular surface disease, any prior episode of cicatricial conjunctivitis or ocular SJS, Grade ≥2 peripheral neuropathy or known coagulation defects leading to an increased risk of bleeding.

Patients received TIVDAK 2 mg/kg intravenously every 3 weeks until disease progression or unacceptable toxicity. Tumor response assessments were performed every 6 weeks for the first 30 weeks and every 12 weeks thereafter.

The median age was 50 years (range: 31 to 78); 95% were White, 2% were Asian, and 1% were Black. Six percent of patients were Hispanic or Latino. Sixty-eight percent of patients had squamous cell carcinoma, 27% had adenocarcinoma, and 5% had adenosquamous histology. ECOG performance status was 0 (58%) or 1 (42%). Seventy percent of patients had received 1 prior line of systemic therapy, and 30% had 2 prior lines of systemic therapy. Sixty-nine percent of patients previously received bevacizumab as part of their prior systemic therapy. Sixty-three percent received bevacizumab in combination with chemotherapy (paclitaxel and cisplatin or carboplatin, or paclitaxel and topotecan) as first-line therapy.

The major efficacy outcome measures were confirmed objective response rate (ORR) as assessed by an independent review committee (IRC) using RECIST v1.1 criteria and duration of response (DOR).

for injection, for intravenous use
What is the most important information I should know about TIVDAK?
TIVDAK can cause serious side effects, including:
Eye problems.  Eye problems are common with TIVDAK, and can also be severe. TIVDAK can cause changes to the surface of your eye that can lead to dry eyes, eye redness, eye irritation, corneal ulcers, blurred vision, and severe vision loss. Tell your healthcare provider if you develop new or worsening vision changes or eye problems during treatment with TIVDAK.
  • Your healthcare provider will send you to an eye specialist to check your eyes before you start treatment with TIVDAK, before each infusion for your first 9 infusions of TIVDAK, and as needed for any new or worsening signs or symptoms of eye problems.
  • Your healthcare provider will ask if you have any signs or symptoms of eye problems before each infusion. You will be referred to an eye specialist for any new or worsening signs or symptoms of eye problems. 
  • Your healthcare provider will prescribe 3 different types of eye drops before you start treatment with TIVDAK. Bring the eye drops with you to each infusion and use them as directed by your healthcare provider to reduce your risk of eye problems:
    • Use 1 drop of steroid eye drops in each eye before each infusion and continue to use your eye drops 3 times a day for 3 days after each infusion.
    • Use vasoconstrictor eye drops right before each infusion.
    • Use lubricating eye drops throughout treatment and for 30 days after your last dose of TIVDAK.
  • Do not wear contact lenses throughout your treatment with TIVDAK unless you are told to use them by your eye specialist.
See "What are the possible side effects of TIVDAK?" for more information about side effects.
What is TIVDAK?
TIVDAK is a prescription medicine used to treat adults with cervical cancer:
  • that has returned or has spread to other parts of the body, and
  • who have received chemotherapy that did not work or is no longer working.
It is not known if TIVDAK is safe and effective in children.
Before receiving TIVDAK, tell your healthcare provider about all of your medical conditions, including if you:
  • have a history of vision or eye problems
  • have numbness or tingling in your hands or feet
  • have bleeding problems
  • have liver problems
  • are pregnant or plan to become pregnant. TIVDAK can harm your unborn baby. Tell your healthcare provider right away if you become pregnant or think you may be pregnant during treatment with TIVDAK.
    Females who are able to become pregnant:
    • Your healthcare provider should do a pregnancy test before you start treatment with TIVDAK.
    • You should use an effective birth control during treatment and for 2 months after your last dose of TIVDAK. 
    Males with female partners who are able to become pregnant:
    • You should use an effective birth control during treatment and for 4 months after your last dose of TIVDAK.
  • are breastfeeding or plan to breastfeed. It is not known if TIVDAK passes into your breast milk. Do not breastfeed during treatment and for 3 weeks after your last dose of TIVDAK.
Tell your healthcare provider about all the medicines you take, including prescription and over-the-counter medicines, vitamins, and herbal supplements. Taking TIVDAK with certain other medicines may cause side effects.
How will I receive TIVDAK?
  • TIVDAK will be given to you by intravenous (IV) infusion into your vein over 30 minutes. 
  • TIVDAK is usually given every 3 weeks. 
  • Your healthcare provider will decide how many infusions you need.
  • Your healthcare provider will put cold packs on your eyes during each infusion.
  • Your healthcare provider may decrease your dose, temporarily stop, or completely stop treatment with TIVDAK if you have side effects.
What are the possible side effects of TIVDAK?
TIVDAK can cause serious side effects, including: 
  • See “What is the most important information I should know about TIVDAK?”  
  • Peripheral neuropathyNerve problems called peripheral neuropathy are common with TIVDAK, and can also be serious. Tell your healthcare provider right away if you get numbness or tingling in your hands or feet or muscle weakness.
  • Bleeding (hemorrhage). Bleeding problems are common with TIVDAK, and can also be serious. Tell your healthcare provider or get medical help right away if you get signs or symptoms of bleeding during treatment with TIVDAK, including:
  • blood in your stools or black stools (looks like tar)
  • blood in your urine
  • cough up or vomit blood
  • unusual vaginal bleeding
  • any unusual or heavy bleeding
  • Lung problems.  TIVDAK may cause severe or life-threatening inflammation of the lungs that can lead to death. Tell your healthcare provider right away if you get new or worsening symptoms, including trouble breathing, shortness of breath, or cough.
