Study of Safety and Efficacy of Pembrolizumab and Chemotherapy in Participants With Newly Diagnosed Classical Hodgkin Lymphoma (cHL) (MK-3475-C11/KEYNOTE-C11)
Trial ID or NCT#
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety and efficacy of pembrolizumab (MK-3475) monotherapy, followed by chemotherapy, followed by pembrolizumab consolidation. The primary hypothesis of the study is that the complete response (CR) rate at the end of study intervention according to Lugano 2014 response criteria is higher than conventional chemotherapy.
