Arm/Group Title Cohort A: Pembrolizumab Cohort B: Pembrolizumab
Hide Arm/Group Description Participants in Cohort A previously received at least one prior systemic treatment for metastatic breast cancer. Participants were administered pembrolizumab 200 mg intravenously (IV) on Day 1 of each 3-week cycle (Q3W) for up to 35 cycles (up to ~2 years). Qualified participants who completed the first course of up to 35 administrations of pembrolizumab (~2 years) but progressed after discontinuation, initiated a second course of pembrolizumab at the investigator's discretion, at the same dose and schedule at 200 mg IV on Day 1 each 3-week cycle (Q3W), for up to 17 cycles (up to ~1 year). Participants in Cohort B previously received no prior systemic treatment for metastatic breast cancer AND had a programmed cell death-ligand 1 (PD-L1) positive tumor expression. Participants were administered pembrolizumab 200 mg IV on Day 1 of each 3-week cycle (Q3W) for up to 35 cycles (up to ~2 years). Qualified participants who completed the first course of up to 35 administrations of pembrolizumab (~2 years) but progressed after discontinuation, initiated a second course of pembrolizumab at the investigator's discretion, at the same dose and schedule at 200 mg IV on Day 1 of each 3-week cycle (Q3W), for up to 17 cycles (up to ~1 year).

1.Primary Outcome
Title Objective Response Rate (ORR) Per Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumors Version 1.1 (RECIST 1.1) by Central Imaging Vendor (CIV) in All Cohort A Participants
Hide Description ORR was defined as the percentage of participants who had a Complete Response (CR: disappearance of all target lesions) or a Partial Response (PR: ≥30% decrease in sum of diameters [SOD] of target lesions) per RECIST 1.1 by CIV. ORR was estimated by Agresti-Coull (A-C) method. The percentage of participants who had CR or PR is reported here as the protocol-specified ORR, for the first pembrolizumab course, assessed from enrolment/treatment initiation and analyzed by Cohort, for all participants in Cohort A. Per protocol final ORR analysis in all Cohort A participants was done at the time of final statistical efficacy analysis, with a 10-November (Nov)-2017 cutoff. Per protocol ORR per RECIST 1.1 by CIV in all Cohort A participants was planned and conducted as a pre-specified primary outcome analysis. Per protocol ORR per RECIST 1.1 by CIV in all Cohort B participants was analyzed separately as a pre-specified secondary outcome analysis and reported later in the record.

Hide Description An AE was defined as any untoward medical occurrence in a clinical investigation participant administered a pharmaceutical product and which does not necessarily have to have a causal relationship with this treatment. An AE can therefore be any unfavorable and unintended sign, symptom or disease temporally associated with the use of a medicinal product or protocol-specified procedure. Any worsening of a pre-existing condition that is temporally associated with the use of the Sponsor's product is also an AE.

Title Odds Ratio of Association Between PD-L1 Tumor Expression and Objective Response (OR) Per RECIST 1.1 by CIV in Cohort A Participants
Hide Description OR comprises CR (disappearance of all target lesions) or PR (≥30% target lesion SOD decrease) per RECIST 1.1 by CIV. PD-L1 expression is assessed by IHC-defined combined positive score (CPS). Association between (b/w) PD-L1 CPS and OR was assessed by odds ratio using a logistic regression model and was calculated as ratio of odds of OR per unit CPS increase in a single arm (odds ratio=1: no association; odds ratio<1: negative association [increase in CPS lowers odds of OR]; odds ratio >1: positive association [increase in CPS raises odds of OR]). Per protocol odds ratio, for the first pembrolizumab course, assessed from enrolment/treatment initiation and analyzed by Cohort is reported here in a single arm of Cohort A participants with PD-L1 CPS available. Per protocol odds ratio was analyzed at the time of final statistical efficacy analysis with a 10-Nov-2017 cutoff. Per protocol odds ratio of association b/w PD-L1 expression and OR was not planned or done in Cohort B participants.

Time Frame Safety: Up to ~31 months for pembrolizumab first course and up to additional ~15 months for pembrolizumab second course (AEs were collected through 90 days post treatment for SAEs and 30 days post treatment for NSAEs); All-cause mortality (ACM): Up to ~54 months for pembrolizumab first and second course
Adverse Event Reporting Description Safety and ACM were analyzed by Cohort (A and B) and by Course of pembrolizumab (first and second course) in all participants who got ≥1 dose of study drug, and were assessed from a participant's enrolment/treatment initiation. Per protocol disease progression of cancer was not considered an AE unless considered related to study drug.

Qualified Cohort A participants who completed the first course of up to 35 administrations of pembrolizumab (~2 years) but progressed after discontinuation, initiated a second course of pembrolizumab at the investigator's discretion, at the same dose and schedule at 200 mg IV on Day 1 each 3-week cycle (Q3W) for up to 17 cycles (up to ~1 year). Participants in Cohort B previously received no prior systemic treatment for metastatic breast cancer AND had a programmed cell death-ligand 1 (PD-L1) positive tumor expression.
