Brief Summary:
The purpose of the study is to determine the safety and test the efficacy of the combination of radium-223 dichloride and pembrolizumab in patients with stage IV non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) with bone metastases who either have not received any systemic therapy for their advanced disease or have progressed on prior immunologic checkpoint blockade with antibodies against the programmed cell death protein-(ligand) 1 (PD-1/PD-L1). In this study researchers want to measure tumor shrinkage in response to treatment and how long that shrinkage lasts and gather information on safety. Pembrolizumab is an immunologic checkpoint blocker that promotes an immune response against the tumor. Radium-223 dichloride is an alpha particle-emitting radioactive agent which kills cancer cells.

  3. Duration of response (DOR) per RECIST v1.1 in Phase 1 [ Time Frame: Up to 5 years ]
    DOR is defined as the time interval from the date of first response (CR or PR) to the date of disease progression or death, whichever comes first.

  4. DOR per iRECIST in Phase 1 [ Time Frame: Up to 5 years ]
  5. Disease control rate (DCR) per RECIST v1.1 in Phase 1 [ Time Frame: Up to 5 years ]
    DCR is defined as the percentage of participants with CR or PR, or SD for at least 6 weeks during the course of the study.

  6. DCR per iRECIST in Phase 1 [ Time Frame: Up to 5 years ]
  7. ORR per iRECIST in Phase 2 [ Time Frame: Up to 5 years ]
  8. DOR per RECIST v1.1 in Phase 2 [ Time Frame: Up to 5 years ]
  9. DOR per iRECIST in Phase 2 [ Time Frame: Up to 5 years ]
  10. DCR per RECIST v1.1 in Phase 2 [ Time Frame: Up to 5 years ]
  11. DCR per iRECIST in Phase 2 [ Time Frame: Up to 5 years ]
  12. Progression free survival (PFS) per RECIST v1.1 in Phase 2 [ Time Frame: Up to 5 years ]
    PFS is defined as the time period until the date of radiological progression or death whichever occurs first.

  13. PFS per iRECIST in Phase 2 [ Time Frame: Up to 5 years ]
  14. Overall survival (OS) in Phase 2 [ Time Frame: Up to 5 years ]
    OS is defined as the time period until the death due to any cause.

  15. Number of participants with AE in Phase 2 [ Time Frame: Until 30 days after the last dose of the study intervention (up to 5 years) ]
