Description

Summary

The purpose of this study is to compare the efficacy of olaparib (MK-7339) plus pembrolizumab (MK-3475) with chemotherapy plus pembrolizumab after induction with first-line chemotherapy plus pembrolizumab in triple negative breast cancer (TNBC). The primary hypotheses are: 1. Olaparib plus pembrolizumab prolongs progression-free survival (PFS) compared with chemotherapy plus pembrolizumab. 2. Olaparib plus pembrolizumab is non-inferior to chemotherapy plus pembrolizumab in terms of overall survival (OS). 3. Olaparib plus pembrolizumab prolongs OS compared with chemotherapy plus pembrolizumab.

Official Title

An Open-label, Randomized, Phase 2/3 Study of Olaparib Plus Pembrolizumab Versus Chemotherapy Plus Pembrolizumab After Induction of Clinical Benefit With First-line Chemotherapy Plus Pembrolizumab in Participants With Locally Recurrent Inoperable or Metastatic Triple Negative Breast Cancer (TNBC) (KEYLYNK-009)
