Study of Pembrolizumab With Maintenance Olaparib or Maintenance Pemetrexed in First-line (1L) Metastatic Nonsquamous Non-Small-Cell Lung Cancer (NSCLC) (MK-7339-006 KEYLYNK-006)


Brief description of study

The current study will compare pembrolizumab (MK-3475) plus maintenance olaparib, v.s. pembrolizumab plus maintenance pemetrexed for the treatment of nonsquamous NSCLC. The study's 2 primary hypotheses are: 1. Pembrolizumab plus maintenance olaparib is superior to pembrolizumab plus maintenance pemetrexed with respect to progression-free survival (PFS) per Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumors (RECIST 1.1) by blinded independent clinical review (BICR) and 2. Pembrolizumab plus maintenance olaparib is superior to pembrolizumab plus maintenance pemetrexed with respect to overall survival (OS).

Detailed Study Description

This study has 2 phases: an Induction Phase (4 Cycles) and a Maintenance Phase (Up to 31 cycles of pembrolizumab). In the Induction Phase, participants receive pembrolizumab plus pemetrexed plus platinum (carboplatin or cisplatin). In the Maintenance Phase, participants with a partial or complete disease response or with stable disease after completing four cycles of induction therapy and who meet eligibility criteria will be randomly assigned to receive pembrolizumab plus maintenance olaparib OR pembrolizumab plus maintenance pemetrexed. In the Maintenance Phase, participants receive pembrolizumab for up to 31 cycles plus maintenance olaparib OR maintenance pemetrexed until progressive disease (PD), intolerable toxicities, or physician decision.
