Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Itacitinib and Pembrolizumab Drug: Itacitinib
a JAK 1 selective small molecule inhibitor
Other Name: INCB039110

Biological: Pembrolizumab
a highly selective humanized monoclonal antibody (mAb)

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Response Rate at 12 weeks according to RECIST 1.1 for the combination of pembrolizumab and itacitinib among patients with previously untreated, PD-L1 positive metastatic NSCLC. [ Time Frame: 12 weeks ]
    Responses will be compared subject's baseline assessment and historical controls using pembrolizumab monotherapy.

  2. Evaluate toxicities (CTCAE v5.0 scoring) of pembrolizumab and itacitinib in patients with previously untreated, PD-L1 positive metastatic NSCLC [ Time Frame: 16 weeks ]

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Median progression free survival (PFS) for subjects treated with pembrolizumab and itacitinib. [ Time Frame: 12 weeks ]
  2. Duration of response (DOR) for subjects treated with pembrolizumab and itacitinib. [ Time Frame: 12 weeks ]
  3. Overall survival (OS) for subjects treated with pembrolizumab and itacitinib. [ Time Frame: 16 weeks ]
