The approval was based on pooled data from KEYNOTE-158 and KEYNOTE-028 open-label trials.

Jonathan Cheng, vice president, oncology clinical research, Merck Research Laboratories, said: "KEYTRUDA is already an established treatment option for non-small cell lung cancer. We look forward to continuing to advance important clinical research in small cell lung cancer."
