Phase II Randomized Study of Neoadjuvant Pembrolizumab Alone or in Combination With CMP-001 in Patients With Operable Melanoma: Efficacy and Biomarker Study.

This phase II trial studies the effect of pembrolizumab alone or in combination with CMP-001 in treating patients with melanoma that can be treated by surgery (operable). Immunotherapy with monoclonal antibodies, such as pembrolizumab, may help the body's immune system attack the cancer, and may interfere with the ability of tumor cells to grow and spread. Immunotherapy with CMP-001 may induce changes in body's immune system and may interfere with the ability of tumor cells to grow and spread. The addition of CMP-001 to pembrolizumab could improve the ability of the immune system to shrink tumors and to prevent them from returning.
Key Eligibility:
•Patient must be candidate for definitive surgery and have met with the treating surgical oncologist prior to randomization.
•Patient must have the presence of injectable and measurable disease based on Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumors (RECIST) 1.1, documented by scans obtained within 4 weeks prior to randomization.
•Patients with a prior or concurrent malignancy whose natural history or treatment does not have the potential to interfere with the safety or efficacy assessment of the investigational regimen are eligible for this trial.
•Patients with known history or current symptoms of cardiac disease, or history of treatment with cardiotoxic agents, should have a clinical risk assessment of cardiac function using the New York Heart Association Functional Classification. To be eligible for this trial, patients should be class 2B or better.
