      In the phase 3 KEYNOTE-189 study, pembrolizumab plus pemetrexed-platinum improved OS and PFS over chemotherapy plus placebo in first-line, metastatic NSCLC without targetable EGFR mutations (Gandhi et al. NEJM 2018). The phase 3 KEYNOTE-789 (, NCT03515837) study evaluates pemetrexed-platinum combined with pembrolizumab vs placebo in EGFR-TKI–resistant, EGFR-mutated, metastatic nonsquamous NSCLC.

      Eligibility for this multicenter, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study requires age ≥18 years; EGFR-TKI–resistant EGFR-mutated (exon 19 deletion or L858R mutation), histologically/cytologically confirmed stage IV, nonsquamous NSCLC; measurable disease per RECIST version 1.1; ECOG PS 0/1; and archival/newly obtained pretreatment tumor sample to evaluate PD-L1 expression. If progression on prior EGFR-TKI occurred with first- or second-generation TKIs (eg, erlotinib, afatinib, gefitinib) and T790M mutation is present, patients must have had subsequent progression on osimertinib; patients with progression on first-line osimertinib are eligible regardless of EGFR T790M mutation status. Patients are randomized 1:1 to pembrolizumab 200 mg or placebo, each in combination with pemetrexed 500 mg/m2 plus platinum chemotherapy (carboplatin AUC 5 or cisplatin 75 mg/m2; investigator’s choice) Q3W for 4 cycles. Patients continue allocated treatment (pembrolizumab or placebo) plus pemetrexed for up to 35 cycles, followed by pemetrexed maintenance therapy until documented disease progression or intolerable toxicity. Randomization is stratified by PD-L1 tumor proportion score ≥50% vs <50%, prior osimertinib vs no prior osimertinib, and geographic region of East Asia vs non-East Asia. Tumor response is assessed radiographically at baseline, week-6, then every 9 weeks through week-54 and every 12 weeks thereafter, per RECIST version 1.1 by blinded, independent central review. Treatment decisions are based on iRECIST criteria by investigator review. PFS and OS are dual primary endpoints, which will be tested with one-sided alphas of 0.001 and 0.02, respectively. Secondary endpoints are ORR; duration of response; change from baseline global health status and quality-of-life scores on the European Organization for Research and Treatment of Cancer (EORTC) Quality of Life Questionnaire (QLQ)-Core 30; time to true deterioration in composite endpoint of cough, chest pain, or dyspnea on EORTC QLQ-Lung Cancer Module 13; and safety and tolerability. Severity of AEs will be graded per NCI CTCAE version 4.0. Approximately 480 patients will be enrolled beginning June 1, 2018.
