Merck said its blockbuster immunotherapy Keytruda, in combination with chemoradiotherapy, met the main goal of improving overall survival for newly diagnosed patients with a form of cervical cancer in a late-stage study.

When given concurrently with chemoradiotherapy, AstraZeneca’s Imfinzi in a late-stage lung cancer study did not lead to significant improvements in progression-free survival versus chemoradiotherapy alone.

Late-stage study suggests Merck’s Keytruda is a promising treatment candidate in newly diagnosed patients with locally advanced cervical cancer, inducing better progression-free survival.
