With continued success, Elahere will not only infiltrate the endometrial cancer market but also pave the way for future treatment strategies with an ADC and immunotherapy combination, says GlobalData.

The full approval makes Elahere the “first and only antibody-drug conjugate (ADC) approved in the U.S. for” ovarian cancer, a “difficult-to-treat malignancy,” AbbVie CMO of global therapeutics Roopal Thakkar, said in a statement.

The deal would help boost AbbVie’s plans to expand into the cancer drug market as its top-selling product Humira, a rheumatoid arthritis treatment, faces fierce competition in the United States.

ImmunoGen entered into a clinical collaboration deal with Gilead Sciences Friday to evaluate the safety and efficacy of two drugs that, when used in concert, have the potential to treat AML, a blood disorder biopharma has found challenging to target. 

ImmunoGen’s Elahere was approved Monday under the FDA’s accelerated pathway for patients who have received one to three previous lines of systemic therapy.
