Merck presents Keytruda study results at American Society of Hematology meeting
Merck's researchers presented findings from the Keytruda study at the recent 57th American Society of Hematology (ASH) Annual Meeting.
“As part of our commitment to helping people with cancer, Merck is leading a broad immuno-oncology clinical program to evaluate the role of Keytruda across several types of blood cancer,” Dr. Roger Dansey, senior vice president at Merck Research Laboratories, said. “Despite the numerous advances in the treatment of blood cancers, there remains a significant unmet medical need. The findings presented at ASH are encouraging and reinforce the potential for Keytruda in the treatment of these types of cancer.”
Currently, Keytruda is used to treat more than 30 kinds of tumors. It has been the subject of more than 160 clinical trials.
