This is a study of pembrolizumab (MK-3475, KEYTRUDA®) in combination with lenvatinib (E7080) versus treatment of physician's choice (doxorubicin or paclitaxel) for the treatment of advanced endometrial cancer. Participants will be randomly assigned to receive either pembrolizumab and lenvatinib or treatment of physician's choice. The primary study hypothesis is that pembrolizumab in combination with lenvatinib prolongs progression free survival (PFS) and overall survival (OS) when compared to treatment of physician's choice.

Official Title

A Multicenter, Open-label, Randomized, Phase 3 Trial to Compare the Efficacy and Safety of Lenvatinib in Combination With Pembrolizumab Versus Treatment of Physician's Choice in Participants With Advanced Endometrial Cancer


Endometrial Neoplasms, programmed cell death 1 (PD-1, PD1), programmed cell death ligand 1 (PD-L1, PDL1), programmed cell death ligand 2 (PD-L2, PDL2), vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) receptors, lenvatinib, pembrolizumab, doxorubicin, paclitaxel, phase 3 endometrial cancer, Lenvatinib 20 mg + Pembrolizumab 200 mg

  2. Documented evidence of advanced, recurrent or metastatic EC.

  7. Is not pregnant, breastfeeding, and agrees to use a highly effective method of contraception during the treatment period and for at least 120 days (for participants treated with lenvatinib plus pembrolizumab) or at least 180 days (for participants treated with treatment of physician's choice [TPC]) after the last dose of study treatment.

  8. Has a history of congestive heart failure greater than New York Heart Association (NYHA) Class II, unstable angina, myocardial infarction, cerebrovascular accident (CVA) stroke, or cardiac arrhythmia associated with hemodynamic instability within 12 months of the first dose of study treatment.
  9. Has an active infection requiring systemic treatment.

    10. Has not recovered adequately from any toxicity and/or complications from major surgery

    prior to starting therapy.

    11. Is positive for Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV). 12. Has active Hepatitis B or C. 13. Has a history of (non-infectious) pneumonitis that required treatment with steroids,

    or has current pneumonitis.

    14. Has known psychiatric or substance abuse disorders that would interfere with

    cooperation with the requirements of the study.

    15. Has a diagnosis of immunodeficiency or is receiving chronic systemic steroid therapy

    (in dosing exceeding 10 mg daily of prednisone equivalent) or any other form of immunosuppressive therapy within 7 days prior to study start -Has an active autoimmune disease (with the exception of psoriasis) that has required systemic treatment in the past 2 years.

    16. Is pregnant or breastfeeding. 17. Has had an allogenic tissue/solid organ transplant. 18. Has received >1 prior systemic chemotherapy regimen (other than adjuvant or

    neoadjuvant) for Endometrial Cancer. Participants may receive up to 2 regimens of platinum-based chemotherapy in total, as long as one is given in the neoadjuvant or adjuvant treatment setting.

    19. Has received prior anticancer treatment within 28 days of study start. All acute

    toxicities related to prior treatments must be resolved to Grade ≤1, except for alopecia and Grade ≤2 peripheral neuropathy.

    20. Has received prior treatment with any treatment targeting VEGF-directed angiogenesis,

    any anti-PD-1, anti-PD-L1, or anti-PD-L2 agent.

    21. Has received prior treatment with an agent directed to a stimulatory or co-inhibitory

    T-cell receptor other than an anti-PD-1, anti-PD-L1, or anti-PD-L2 agent, and who has discontinued from that treatment due to a Grade 3 or higher immune-related adverse event.

    22. Has received prior radiation therapy within 21 days of study start with the exception

    of palliative radiotherapy to bone lesions, which is allowed if completed 2 weeks of study start. Participants must have recovered from all radiation-related toxicities and/or complications prior to randomization.

    23. Has received a live vaccine within 30 days of study start. 24. Has a known intolerance to study treatment (or any of the excipients). 25. Prior enrollment on a clinical study evaluating pembrolizumab and lenvatinib for

    endometrial carcinoma, regardless of treatment received.

    agent or has used an investigational device within 4 weeks of study start.

    27. Participants with urine protein ≥1 gram (g)/24 hour. 28. Prolongation of corrected QT (QTc) interval to >480 milliseconds (ms). 29. Left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF) below the institutional normal range as
