Trial ID or NCT#



not recruiting iconNOT RECRUITING


This phase 1-2 trial studies how well pembrolizumab with or without vismodegib works in treating patients with skin basal cell cancer that has spread to other places in the body or cannot be removed by surgery. Monoclonal antibodies, such as pembrolizumab, are checkpoint inhibitors that stimulate immune response. Vismodegib may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking signals needed for cell growth.
