- Objective Response Rate [ Time Frame: 30 days after the last dose of pembrolizumab until disease progression, initiating a non-study cancer treatment, withdrawing consent, or becoming lost to follow-up. Median duration of follow-up was 8.3 months (95% CI 3.0-10.1 months). ]The objective response rate (ORR) of ADV/HSV-tk plus (+) valacyclovir therapy in combination with SBRT used as a window of opportunity treatment before pembrolizumab in patients with metastatic TNBC and metastatic NSCLC. Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumors (RECIST) 1.1 will be used to assess treatment response. Modified immune-related response criteria (irRC; derived from RECIST 1.1) will also be documented.

|Plan Description:||Data and materials on human subjects will be shared with other eligible investigators through appropriate means in accordance with the NIH policy on Sharing Research Data (NIH Guide, February 26, 2003). Data will be also shared with the funding agency and regulatory agencies as required. Data will be shared with other investigators within the limits of HIPAA and other patient confidentiality requirements. This will generally require removal of all patient identifiers for all source documents and the use of arbitrarily assigned one-way identifiers. In some cases, requestors will be asked to sign a formal data sharing agreement that will provide for a commitment to use data only for research purposes and not to identify individuals, keep the data secure, and destroy or return data after analyses are complete. Prior approval will be obtained from collaborating investigators, research sponsors, and/or other stake-holders before sharing if proprietary information or products are involved.|
