Elizabeth Plimack, MD, director of Genitourinary Clinical Research at Fox Chase Cancer Center, discusses the KEYNOTE-052 trial investigating pembrolizumab (Keytruda) in the frontline setting for patients with urothelial carcinoma.

The KEYNOTE-052 investigated pembrolizumab in the frontline setting, explains Plimack. Additionally, the PD-L1 biomarker and gene signature that predicted full response had been investigated in this trial.

The search for better biomarkers to help select treatment is still requires further investigation states Plimack.
