Last Update Posted : March 1, 2019
Patients with unresectable locally advanced or metastatic squamous cell penile carcinoma (SPC) who are in response or with stable disease after first line platinum containing polychemotherapy who meet the inclusion/exclusion criteria will be offered to take part in the study.
The patients may be pre-screened at the time of the 1st line chemotherapy.
In order for patients to be enrolled, the investigator must have carried out a radiological assessment of the disease during first line systemic treatment (a maximum of between 3 and 6 cycles): the cancer must be controlled. Patients with disease progression cannot be included in the PULSE study as this is a maintenance study.
After inclusion, Avelumab will be administered at a dose of 10 mg/kg, at a frequency of once every 2 weeks with appropriate supportive care.

- PFS (progression-free survival) [ Time Frame: 24 months ]To estimate progression-free survival in patients included in this study
- OS (overall survival) [ Time Frame: 32 months ]To estimate overall survival in patients included in this study
- MDT (median duration of treatment) [ Time Frame: 24 months ]To estimate the median duration of avelumab treatment calculated from avelumab initiation in patients included in this study
- QOL (quality of life) assessed by EORTC QLQ-C30 [ Time Frame: 24 months ]To assess health-related quality of life since avelumab is started in patients included in this study
- Number of participants with treatment-related adverse events as assessed by CTCAE v4.03 [ Time Frame: 24 months ]To assess safety profile after avelumab initiation
