Summary

The purpose of this study is to determine the efficacy of pembrolizumab given in combination with either ipilimumab or placebo as first-line treatment in participants with metastatic non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). The primary hypothesis of this study is that overall survival (OS) and/or progression-free survival (PFS) is prolonged in participants who receive pembrolizumab and ipilimumab compared to those who receive pembrolizumab and placebo. In the experimental group: Participants receive 200 mg of pembrolizumab by intravenous (IV) infusion on Day 1 of each 3-week cycle for up to 35 cycles of treatment plus 1 mg/kg of ipilimumab by IV infusion on Day 1 of each 6-week cycle for up to 18 cycles of treatment. In the active comparator: Participants receive 200 mg of pembrolizumab by IV infusion on Day 1 of each 3-week cycle for up to 35 cycles of treatment plus placebo by IV infusion on Day 1 of each 6-week cycle for up to 18 cycles of treatment.
