Merck U03B: Targeted combination therapies for second line ccRCC patients (Renal Cell Cancer)
What is the Purpose of this Study?
- Have physical exams
- Have blood draws
- Have imaging tests (CT/MRI, EKG, echocardiogram, bone scans)
- Receive a random assignment (fair chance) to 1 of 6 study groups
Each study group will take a different combination of the study drug(s). The 6 possible study drug combinations are:
- MK-1308A alone
- MK-4280A alone
- Pembrolizumab + MK-4830
- Pemborlizumab + MK-6482
- Lenvatinib + MK-6482
- Pembrolizumab + lenvatinib
This study is not blinded. That means both you and your doctor will know the group to which you are assigned and what study drug(s) you will take.

Adults ages 18+ who are diagnosed with ccRCC and:
- Have been treated with a VEGF-TK-inhibitor drug
- Have been treated with an anti-PD-(L)1 monoclonal antibody
