Abstract Text KEYNOTE-158 ( identifier: NCT02628067) investigated the efficacy and safety of pembrolizumab across multiple cancers. We present results from patients with previously treated advanced well-differentiated neuroendocrine tumors (NET).Pembrolizumab 200 mg was administered every 3 weeks for 2 years or until progression, intolerable toxicity, or physician/patient decision. Tumor imaging was performed every 9 weeks for the first year and then every 12 weeks. Endpoints included objective response rate (ORR) per RECIST v1.1 by independent central radiologic review (primary) and duration of response (DOR), progression-free survival (PFS), overall survival (OS), and safety (secondary).A total of 107 patients with NETs of the lung, appendix, small intestine, colon, rectum, or pancreas were treated. Median age was 59.0 years (range, 29-80), 44.9% had ECOG performance status 1, 40.2% had received ≥3 prior therapies for advanced disease, and 15.9% had PD-L1-positive tumors (combined positive score ≥1). Median follow-up was 24.2 months (range, 0.6-33.4). ORR was 3.7% (95% CI, 1.0-9.3), with zero complete responses and four partial responses (three pancreatic and one rectal) all in patients with PD-L1-negative tumors. Median DOR was not reached, with one of four responses ongoing after ≥21 months follow-up. Median PFS was 4.1 months (95% CI, 3.5-5.4); the 6-month PFS rate was 39.3%. Median OS was 24.2 months (95% CI, 15.8-32.5). Treatment-related adverse events (AE) occurred in 75.7% of patients, 21.5% of whom had grade 3-5 AEs.Pembrolizumab monotherapy showed limited antitumor activity and manageable safety in patients with previously treated advanced well-differentiated NETs.


  • Case insensitive filtering will display rows where any text in any cell matches the filter term
  • Simple literal full or partial string matches
  • Separate multiple filter terms with a spaces, order doesn't matter (a b c and c b a are equivalent )
  • Filtering will only apply to rows that are already loaded on the page, filtering has no impact on query parameters
  • Use quotes to match a longer phrase which contains spaces "mtor c1483f"


  • Generally, the default sort order for tables is set to be first column ascending, however, specific tables may set a different default sort order.
  • Click on any column header arrows to sort by that column
  • Hold down the Shift key and click multiple columns to sort by more than one column, be sure to set ascending or descending order for a given column, before moving on to the next column.

Unknown unknown neuroendocrine tumor not applicable Pembrolizumab Phase II Actionable In a Phase II trial (KEYNOTE-158), Keytruda (pembrolizumab) treatment demonstrated safety but limited efficacy in patients with heavily pretreated neuroendocrine tumors, resulting in a partial response in 3.7% (4/107, 3 pancreatic, 1 GI) and stable disease in 57.0% (61/107) of patients, all 4 responders were CD274 (PD-L1)-negative (PMID: 31980466; NCT02628067). 31980466
