Descriptive Information
Brief Title Program for Pembrolizumab (MK-3475) in Participants With Metastatic Melanoma Who Have Failed Standard of Care Therapy Including Ipilimumab (MK-3475-030)
Brief Summary This is an expanded access program (EAP) for participants who have progressed after prior systemic therapy including ipilimumab, and V-raf murine sarcoma viral oncogene homolog B1 (BRAF) inhibitor or mitogen-activated protein kinase (MEK) enzyme inhibitor when indicated. Participants cannot be eligible for or have participated in any pembrolizumab (MK-3475) clinical trial with the exception of a participant enrolled in the pembrolizumab protocol MK-3475-006 who received treatment on the ipilimumab treatment arm and progressed; such participants will be eligible to participate in the EAP, regardless of prior treatment with a BRAF/MEK inhibitor, as long as all other eligibility criteria for MK-3475-030 are met.
Detailed Description Pembrolizumab has been approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for the treatment of patients with unresectable metastatic melanoma and disease progression following ipilimumab and if BRAF V600 mutation positive, a BRAF inhibitor. The Expanded Access Program (EAP) for this medicine in the U.S. is closed. The EAP will continue outside the U.S.
Study Type Expanded Access
Intervention Biological: Pembrolizumab
Each participant will receive pembrolizumab every 3 weeks for up to 2 years or until confirmed radiographic disease progression, unacceptable toxicity, confirmed positive pregnancy test, withdrawal of consent, or pembrolizumab approval in the participant's country.
