What is ARTISTRY-7?
ARTISTRY-7 is a research study enrolling adult patients with advanced or metastatic (cancer that has spread) epithelial ovarian, fallopian tube, or primary peritoneal cancer that has become resistant to platinum-based therapy.
This study is testing an investigational treatment called nemvaleukin alfa (nemvaleukin) in combination with another treatment called pembrolizumab (KEYTRUDA®) in comparison to chemotherapy. Pembrolizumab is an approved treatment for some types of cancer, but is not approved for the treatment of ovarian cancer alone or in combination with nemvaleukin. Nemvaleukin is investigational and not approved by any regulatory authority. It is not known if nemvaleukin, alone or in combination, is safe or effective.
This study is being funded by the pharmaceutical company Alkermes.

What is Nemvaleukin?
Nemvaleukin is an investigational treatment that is currently being evaluated in studies of advanced cancers. Nemvaleukin is not approved by any regulatory authority.
Nemvaleukin is a modified molecule that binds to a protein known as the interleukin-2 (IL-2) receptor and has the potential to stimulate the body’s immune system which may help fight certain types of cancers. Nemvaleukin is given intravenously (through the veins) as a 30-minute infusion in this study.
