Clinical trials are an important way to improve treatment for people with cancer. While most are continuing during the COVID-19 pandemic, the period of time that clinical trials are available and recruiting may change quickly. If you would like to get involved in a clinical trial, speak to your treatment team or the health service where the clinical trial is being undertaken, to confirm it is open and appropriate for you. For cancer information and support, call Cancer Council's experienced cancer nurses on 13 11 20 Monday to Friday from 9am-5pm.

Trial Overview Read MoreRead more

This phase I trial is evaluating a new immunotherapy drug (MK-7684) alone and in combination with another immunotherapy drug (Pembrolizumab) in patients with advanced solid tumours.

This trial is treating patients with advanced solid cancers.

This is a systemic therapy trial.

You may be able to join this trial if:

  • Your cancer has spread to other parts of the body.

You may be excluded from this trial if:

  • You have a certain disease or psychological condition.
  • You have had certain treatments, surgical procedures or drugs.

Scientific Title

A Phase 1 Trial of MK-7684 as Monotherapy and in Combination With Pembrolizumab in Subjects With Advanced Solid Tumors

Commercial Sponsor



This is a safety, efficacy, and pharmacokinetics study of MK-7684 as monotherapy and in combination with pembrolizumab (MK-3475) in adults with metastatic solid tumors for which there is no available therapy that is expected to convey clinical benefit. Part A of this study is a dose escalation phase. Part B is a dose confirmation phase to estimate the recommended Phase 2 dose (RPTD) for MK-7684 monotherapy or in combination with pembrolizumab. The anti-tumor activity of MK-7684 when used as monotherapy and in combination with pembrolizumab in participants with advanced solid tumors will be evaluated in Part B in a non-randomized study design. Part B will also evaluate 2 doses of MK-7684 in combination with pembrolizumab in participants with programmed death 1 (PD-1) treatment naïve cancer using a 1:1 randomized study design. The primary hypothesis is that MK-7684 administered as monotherapy or in combination with pembrolizumab is safe when administered at the RPTD. MK-7684 will be administered as an intravenous (IV) infusion on Day 1 of infusion Cycles 1-35. Pembrolizumab will be administered as an IV infusion on Day 1 of infusion Cycles 1-35.
