Tisotumab vedotin-tftv (TIVDAK®), a tissue factor-directed antibody-drug conjugate, is a valuable option for the treatment of adult patients with recurrent or metastatic cervical cancer experiencing disease progression on or after chemotherapy in the USA. In a clinical trial in patients with previously treated recurrent or metastatic cervical cancer, treatment with tisotumab vedotin-tftv intravenous infusion led to clinically meaningful and durable antitumor activity. The tolerability profile of tisotumab vedotin-tftv was manageable, with most adverse events being mild or moderate in severity. The most frequently reported treatment-related adverse events included certain unique toxicities (e.g. ocular toxicity, hemorrhage), in addition to toxicities more common among patients receiving chemotherapy (e.g. alopecia, nausea, fatigue, anemia, peripheral neuropathy). Adherence to premedication and required eye care before, during, and after the infusion is essential.
