The study will compare the efficacy and safety of pembrolizumab plus trastuzumab in combination with standard of care (SOC) chemotherapy versus trastuzumab in combination with SOC chemotherapy in participants with HER2-positive gastric cancer. The primary hypotheses of the study are that pembrolizumab plus trastuzumab in combination with chemotherapy is superior to trastuzumab plus chemotherapy in terms of 1) progression free survival (PFS) per Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumors 1.1 (RECIST 1.1) as assessed by blinded independent central review (BICR), and 2) overall survival (OS).
Pembrolizumab (200 mg) or placebo will be administered intravenously [IV] on day 1 of each 3-week cycle. Trastuzumab (8 mg/kg loading dose, 6 mg/kg maintenance dose) will be administered IV on day 1 of each 3-week cycle. SOC chemotherapy for the global cohort will either be FP (80 mg/m^2 cisplatin administered IV on Day 1 of each 3-week cycle and 800 mg/m^2 5-fluorouracil [5-FU] administered IV on Days 1-5 of each 3-week cycle) or CAPOX (1000 mg/m^2 capecitabine administered orally twice daily [BID] on days 1-14 of each 3-week cycle and 130 mg/m^2 oxaliplatin administered IV on Day 1 of each 3-week cycle). A Japan cohort will receive SOX chemotherapy consisting of S-1 (tegafur, 5-chloro-2,4-dihydroxypyridine [CDHP], and potassium oxonate [Oxo]) administered orally BID according to Body Surface Area (BSA) on Days 1-14 of each 3-week cycle and oxaliplatin (130 mg/m^2) administered IV on Day 1 each 3-week cycle.
