Full TitleA Phase II Trial of Pembrolizumab plus Lenvatinib for the Treatment of Patients with Advanced Uterine and Ovarian Carcinosarcomas
The purpose of this study is to assess the safety and effectiveness of combining the drugs lenvatinib and pembrolizumab to treat advanced uterine carcinosarcoma. Pembrolizumab is a form of immunotherapy. It boosts the power of the immune system to find and kill cancer cells. Lenvatinib works by blocking certain proteins that help cancer cells grow and develop blood vessels.
Both drugs are used in combination to treat endometrial cancer; their use in uterine carcinosarcoma is considered investigational. Lenvatinib is taken orally (by mouth) and pembrolizumab is given intravenously (by vein).
