ImmunoGen (NASDAQ:IMGN) stock is rising higher on Wednesday after the company released results from a Phase 3 trial for treating ovarian cancer.

According to a press release, the company reported positive top-line data from its clinical trial of Elahere. This is a treatment in development from the company for ovarian cancer. Today’s results showed Elahere was effective in treating certain patients.

Kathleen Moore, principal investigator of the clinical trial, said the following about the results:

“I believe the data from the confirmatory MIRASOL trial are practice-changing. They demonstrate ELAHERE’s superiority to chemotherapy based on all efficacy endpoints, in particular overall survival, and build on the clinical benefit of ELAHERE previously reported in the SORAYA trial”

ImmunoGen intends to submit a Marketing Authorization Application (MAA) in Europe and a supplemental Biologics License Application (sBLA) in the U.S. for Elahere. If approved, this could result in sales that could boost IMGN stock.
