Merck enters into a pharma licensing deal with GSK for evaluating combination therapy for renal cell carcinoma.

Merck announced the initiation of a clinical trial to evaluate the combination of the company’s investigational anti-PD-1 immunotherapy, MK-3475, and GlaxoSmithKline’s orally administered kinase inhibitor, pazopanib, in advanced renal cell carcinoma.

Merck and GlaxoSmithKline entered a pharma licensing deal to study MK-3475 with pazopanib and other agents in the GlaxoSmithKline portfolio in the future.

This Phase I/II clinical trial is designed to evaluate the safety and efficacy of a combination of MK-3475 and pazopanib in treatment naïve patients with advanced renal cell carcinoma.
