Scholarcy highlights

  • Malignant pleural mesothelioma is a highly aggressive cancer with poor prognosis and limited treatment options after progression on platinumcontaining chemotherapy
  • OA13.03 Long-Term Overall Survival for Patients with Malignant Pleural Mesothelioma on Pembrolizumab Enrolled in KEYNOTE-028

  • Median overall survival was 18.0 months with 6- and 12-month OS rates of 83.5% and 62.6%, respectively
  • Long-term administration of pembrolizumab is feasible in patients with MPM, and no new safety signals were identified
  • KEYNOTE-028 is a nonrandomized, multicohort phase 1b trial of pembrolizumab in patients with PD-L1epositive advanced solid tumors. 25 patients with MPM were treated with pembrolizumab in the mesothelioma cohort
  • We examined biopsy specimens from 12 Malignant pleural mesothelioma patients that were removed during maximal cyto-reductive surgery
