Corporate Profile

Mersana is a biopharmaceutical company specializing in the discovery and development of antibody-drug conjugate (ADC) therapies to treat patients fighting cancer. Leveraging decades of industry learnings, we have developed proprietary and highly differentiated ADC platforms and expertise to rapidly design and test novel ADCs and identify those with optimal efficacy, safety and tolerability. Using this strategy, we are building a robust pipeline of ADC candidates with the potential to make a life-changing difference for people living with cancer. Our lead candidate, upifitamab rilsodotin (UpRi), is a first-in-class Dolaflexin ADC targeting NaPi2b and is being studied in UPLIFT, a single-arm registrational trial in patients with platinum-resistant ovarian cancer; UPGRADE, a Phase 1/2 umbrella trial evaluating UpRi in combination with other ovarian cancer therapies; and UP-NEXT, a Phase 3 clinical trial of UpRi as monotherapy maintenance following treatment with platinum doublets in recurrent platinum-sensitive ovarian cancer. Mersana is also developing XMT-1660, a Dolasynthen ADC targeting B7-H4, and XMT-2056, an Immunosynthen ADC targeting a novel epitope of human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 (HER2). In addition, multiple partners are using Mersana’s platforms to advance their ADC pipelines.
