Brief Summary:

The purpose of this trial is to evaluate the safety, tolerability, and efficacy of pembrolizumab (MK-3475, KEYTRUDA®) and pembrolizumab in combination with lenalidomide (Cohort 5 only) in hematologic malignancies. The primary study hypotheses are that treatment with pembrolizumab will result in a clinically meaningful improvement in Objective Response Rate (ORR) or Complete Remission Rate (CRR).

The study includes an initial dose determination to establish the recommended phase 2 dose (RP2D) of lenalidomide given in combination with pembrolizumab in Cohort 5.

With Protocol Amendment 08, enrollment in the Multiple Myeloma arm (Cohort 2) has been completed and no further enrollment will be allowed and enrollment in the Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma Diffuse Large B Cell Lymphoma arm (Cohort 5) has been discontinued and no further enrollment will be allowed.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Number of Participants Who Experienced One or More Adverse Events (AEs): [ Time Frame: Up to approximately 78.5 months ]
    An adverse event was defined as any untoward medical occurrence in a participant administered study treatment and did not necessarily have a causal relationship with this treatment. An adverse event could be any unfavorable and unintended sign (including an abnormal laboratory finding), symptom, or disease temporally associated with the use of a medicinal product or protocol-specified procedure, whether or not considered related to the medicinal product or protocol-specified procedure. Any worsening of a preexisting condition that was temporally associated with the use of the study treatment was also an adverse event.

  2. Number of Participants Who Discontinued Study Treatment Due to an Adverse Event (AE) [ Time Frame: Up to approximately 78.5 months ]
    An adverse event was defined as any untoward medical occurrence in a participant administered study treatment and did not necessarily have a causal relationship with this treatment. An adverse event could be any unfavorable and unintended sign (including an abnormal laboratory finding), symptom, or disease temporally associated with the use of a medicinal product or protocol-specified procedure, whether or not considered related to the medicinal product or protocol-specified procedure. Any worsening of a preexisting condition that was temporally associated with the use of the study treatment was also an adverse event.

  3. Objective Response Rate (ORR) in Cohort 1: Myelodysplastic Syndrome (MDS) [ Time Frame: Up to approximately 78.5 months ]
    ORR was defined as the percentage of participants with response (complete response [CR] or partial response [PR]) according to the International Working Group (IWG) response criteria in myelodysplasia per Cheson et al. 2006. CR was demonstrated by ≤5% myeloblasts with normal maturation of all cell lines in the bone marrow (persistent dysplasia will be noted) and normal findings for hemoglobin, platelet count, neutrophil count, and absence of blasts in the blood. PR was all CR criteria if abnormal before treatment except bone marrow blasts decreased by ≥50% over pre-treatment but still >5%. Cellularity and morphology are not relevant. Cohort 1 was evaluated statistically by comparing the ORR for pembrolizumab to a fixed efficacy target of 10% using a binomial exact test. The percentage of participants with CR and PR as assessed by the investigator is presented.
