What is Keytruda?

Keytruda (pembrolizumab) is a cancer medicine that interferes with the growth and spread of cancer cells in the body.

Keytruda is used to treat:

  • advanced skin cancer (melanoma) that has spread to other parts of the body or cannot be surgically removed;
  • a certain type of non-small cell lung cancer, if your tumor has a specific genetic marker for which your doctor will test;
  • head and neck cancer that has spread to other parts of the body, or has come back after prior treatment;
  • classical Hodgkin lymphoma in adults and children;
  • a certain type of bladder and urinary tract cancer that has spread to other parts of the body or cannot be surgically removed; and
  • a type of cancer that laboratory testing proves to be a microsatellite instability-high or a mismatch repair deficiency solid tumor.

Keytruda is often given after other cancer medicine has been tried without success.

Keytruda was approved by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) on an “accelerated” basis to treat lung cancer or head and neck cancer. In clinical studies, tumors responded to this medicine. However, it has not been shown that pembrolizumab can improve symptoms or lengthen survival time.

Important information

Keytruda can change the way your immune system works, which may cause certain side effects that can lead to serious medical problems.

Call your doctor at once if you have: chest pain, cough, shortness of breath, vision changes, tiredness, severe muscle pain or weakness, diarrhea and severe stomach pain, blood in your stools, bruising or bleeding, dark urine, yellowing of the skin or eyes, a hormonal disorder (frequent headaches, feeling light-headed, rapid heartbeats, a deeper voice, increased thirst or urination, feeling cold, weight gain or loss), or a change in the amount or color of your urine.

The side effects of Keytruda can cause symptoms in many different parts of your body. Some side effects may need to be treated with other medicine, and your cancer treatments may be delayed. You will need frequent medical tests to help your doctor determine if it is safe for you to keep receiving Keytruda. Do not miss any follow-up visits to your doctor.

Before taking this medicine

To make sure Keytruda is safe for you, tell your doctor if you have:

  • a lung disease or a breathing disorder;
  • liver or kidney disease;
  • a thyroid disorder;
  • an autoimmune disorder such as lupus, Crohn’s disease, or ulcerative colitis; or
  • if you have ever had an organ transplant.

Do not use Keytruda if you are pregnant. It could harm the unborn baby. Tell your doctor right away if you become pregnant during treatment. Use effective birth control while you are using this medicine and for at least 4 months after your last dose.

It is not known whether pembrolizumab passes into breast milk or if it could harm a nursing baby. You should not breast-feed while using Keytruda and for at least 4 months after your last dose.

How is Keytruda given?

Keytruda is injected into a vein through an IV. A healthcare provider will give you this injection.

Keytruda is usually given once every 3 weeks. Your doctor will determine how long to treat you with this medicine. Follow your doctor’s dosing instructions.

Before you start treatment, your doctor will perform tests to make sure Keytruda is the best treatment for your type of skin cancer.

This list is not complete. Other drugs may interact with pembrolizumab, including prescription and over-the-counter medicines, vitamins, and herbal products. Not all possible interactions are listed in this medication guide.

Follow the following prescription medicine precautions :

Receiving Keytruda while pregnant may indirectly harm the baby by causing side effects in the woman. Take proper medical help in case you are pregnant, may be pregnant or planning to become pregnant in the near future. Health care providers may suggest inducing labor early to protect the baby from cancer treatment.
  You should not be taken Keytruda, if you are breast-feeding or plan to breast-feed. This is because the drugs could be passed to your baby through breast milk. As Keytruda may cause serious side effects in a breast-fed baby, talk to your doctor about whether you should continue breast-feeding.
  Your doctor will do regular blood tests to check for side effects of Keytruda. It is also important to check your levels of blood cells and other substances in the blood.
  Before taking this medicine, tell your doctor and pharmacist if you are allergic to Keytruda, any other medications, or any of the ingredients in this cancer medicine. This medication is not recommended for use in patients with a known allergy to Keytruda 50mg.
  If you take  Keytruda, you must stop drinking alcohol. This is one of the ways to prevent this disease from getting worse. If you are dependent on alcohol and want to stop drinking, your doctor can recommend a therapy that’s tailored for your needs.
  If you use other prescription drugs or over the counter products at the same time, the effects of this cancer medicine may change. Tell your doctor about all the drugs, vitamins, and herbal supplements you are using, so that your pharmacist can help you prevent or manage drug interactions.
  More than 80% of patients occasionally miss a dose of their medication. Missing a dose of Keytruda can upset your treatment plan. If you miss a dose, contact your health care provider or pharmacist immediately to establish a new dosing schedule. Be careful not to take doses too close together because you might get side effects. Don’t double your next dose to “make up” for the one you missed.
  After the expiry date, medicines may not be safe or lose some or all of their effectiveness. You should not take Adriamycin after their expiry date. If you’ve had a medicine for a while, check the expiry date before using it. If it has expired or is damaged, return it to your pharmacist for disposal.
  During your treatment with Doxorubicin, it is very important for your doctor to know about your medical history if you have Kidney problems, hepatitis B, liver problems, HIV (human immunodeficiency virus), triglycerides, diabetes or other health problems.
