Clinical Trial

(KEYNOTE-921) A Phase 3, Randomized, Double-blind Study of Pembrolizumab (MK-3475) Plus Docetaxel Plus Prednisone versus Placebo Plus Docetaxel Plus Prednisone in Participants with Chemotherapy-na´ve Metastatic Castration-Resistant Prostate Cancer (mCRPC) who have Progressed on a Next Generation Hormonal Agent (NHA)

The purpose of this study is to test the safety of the study drug, pembrolizumab, in combination with a chemotherapy plus a steroid. Some other reasons we are conducting this study is to see how well your body handles pembrolizumab compared to placebo (a look-alike with no active ingredients) in combination with a chemotherapy and a steroid, see how well pembrolizumab compared to placebo works in combination with a chemotherapy and a steroid and see if pembrolizumab helps patients live longer and have a better quality of life.
