Adjuvant Therapy With Pembrolizumab Versus Placebo in Resected High-risk Stage II Melanoma: A Randomized, Double-blind Phase 3 Study
This is a 2-part clinical trial, in which patients will be randomised to receive permbrolizumab or placebo for up to 17 cycles. In the experimental arm (Part 1), paediatric patients will receive up to 17 cycles of 2 mg/kg (200 mg maximum) pembrolizumab by intravenous (IV) infusion every 3 weeks (Q3W) and adult patients will receive up to 17 cycles of 200 mg pembrolizumab by IV infusion Q3W. Patients who complete the full 17 cycles of pembrolizumab and experience disease recurrence may be eligible to receive additional treatment with pembrolizumab in an open label design (Part 2). In Part 2, patients will receive either 17 cycles of pembrolizumab for local/distant recurrence following resection of disease or up to 35 cycles of pembrolizumab for disease that cannot be resected or metastatic disease. Patients in the placebo arm (Part 1) will receive 17 cycles of saline placebo by IV infusion Q3W in a double-blind design. Patients that complete 17 cycles of placebo and experience disease recurrence may be eligible to receive pembrolizumab in Part 2 of the study, as described above.
