Clinical Trial 45250

Louisville, KY 40241


Exicure Merkel Cell Carcinoma Research Study

The Merkel cell carcinoma research study will evaluate how safe and tolerable a new investigational treatment is both alone and in combination with pembrolizumab in adults who qualify. The research study is open label and non-randomized. This means that you will know information about the active ingredients in the investigational treatment.

Eligible study participants:

  • Are at least 18 years or older
  • Are diagnosed by a doctor with Merkel cell carcinoma and had your disease worsen on the standard treatments (pembrolizumab (Keytruda ®) or avelumab (Bavencio ®)) as the most recent treatment
  • Have tumors on or under your skin, or in lymph nodes
  • Do not have other cancers at the same time
  • Do not have active or documented history of an autoimmune disease or syndrome requiring steroid or immunosuppressive treatment

Additional study requirements and exclusions may apply. A study representative will discuss these with you during the screening period.
