Program for Pembrolizumab (MK-3475) in Participants With Metastatic Melanoma Who Have Failed Standard of Care Therapy Including Ipilimumab (MK-3475-030)
Expanded Access of MK-3475 in Metastatic Melanoma Patients With Limited to No Treatment Options

This is an expanded access program (EAP) for participants who have progressed after prior systemic therapy including ipilimumab, and V-raf murine sarcoma viral oncogene homolog B1 (BRAF) inhibitor or mitogen-activated protein kinase (MEK) enzyme inhibitor when indicated. Participants cannot be eligible for or have participated in any pembrolizumab (MK-3475) clinical trial.

Pembrolizumab has been approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for the treatment of patients with unresectable metastatic melanoma and disease progression following ipilimumab and if BRAF V600 mutation positive, a BRAF inhibitor. The Expanded Access Program (EAP) for this medicine in the U.S. is closed. The EAP will continue outside the U.S.
