What does Keytruda do?

Keytruda is the trade name for the generic drug Pembrolizumab. It is a prescription medicine which is given by injection for -

• The treatment of unresectable or metastatic melanoma.
• Patients with metastatic non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC).
• For treatment of patients with recurrent or metastatic head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC).
• For treatment of adult and pediatric patients with refractory classical Hodgkin lymphoma (cHL), or those who have relapsed after three or more prior lines of therapy.

Pembrolizumab blocks the activity of a molecule called PD-1, a protein that prevents T cells from recognizing and attacking inflammatory tissue and cancer cells. By blocking PD-1, Pembrolizumab increases the ability of your immune system to attack melanoma cells and tumors. This cancer medicine can release T cells so that it can penetrate melanoma anywhere in your body.
