Pembrolizumab (Keytruda) monotherapy induced durable clinical outcomes in heavily pretreated patients with clear cell gynecologic cancer (CCGC), according to findings from the phase 2 PEACOCC trial (NCT03425565).
Forty-eight patients were included in the analysis. The progression-free survival (PFS) rate was 43.8% (n = 21/48; 90% CI, 31.5%-56.6%) at 12 weeks, exceeding the established lower bound of 15%. Eighteen (37.5%) patients had progressive disease, and 6 (12.5%) progressed and died.
Translational sample analysis is ongoing. Investigators said these results justify further evaluation of pembrolizumab as the new standard of care for advanced CCGC.
