A Multicenter, Open-label, Phase 2 Trial to Assess the Efficacy and Safety of Lenvatinib (E7080/MK-7902) in Combination With Pembrolizumab (MK-3475) in Participants With Advanced Melanoma Previously Exposed to an Anti-PD-1/L1 Agent (LEAP-004)

This study will evaluate the safety and efficacy of combination therapy of lenvatinib
(E7080/MK-7902) and pembrolizumab following approximately 2 years of pembrolizumab therapy
and approximately 2 years or more lenvatinib therapy in adult participants with unresectable
or advanced melanoma who have been exposed to anti-PD-1/L1 agents approved for unresectable
or metastatic melanoma. No statistical hypothesis will be tested in this study.

resonance imaging (MRI) per RECIST 1.1 as confirmed by BICR.

administered either as monotherapy, or in combination with other checkpoint inhibitors
or other therapies

- Has submitted pre-trial imaging

- Has an Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group (ECOG) performance status 0 to 1

- Has provided a baseline tumor biopsy

Gray (Gy), they must have recovered from the toxicity and/or complications from the

- Male participants must agree to use approved contraception during the treatment period
and for at least 120 days after the last dose of study intervention and refrain from
donating sperm during this period

- Female participants are not pregnant and not breastfeeding, and are not a woman of

guidance during the treatment period and for at least 120 days after the last dose of
study intervention

- Has known active central nervous system (CNS) metastases and/or carcinomatous

- Has ocular melanoma

- Has known hypersensitivity to active substances or any of their excipients including
previous clinically significant hypersensitivity reaction to treatment with another
monoclonal antibody

- Has an active autoimmune disease that has required systemic treatment in past 2 years
(ie, with use of disease modifying agents, corticosteroids or immunosuppressive drugs)

- Has an active infection requiring systemic therapy

- Has known history of Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) or HIV 1/2 antibodies

- Has known history of or is positive for hepatitis B (hepatitis B surface antigen
[HBsAg] reactive) or hepatitis C (HCV RNA qualitative] is detected)

- Has a history of active tuberculosis (Bacillus tuberculosis)

- Has presence of a gastrointestinal condition including malabsorption, gastrointestinal
anastomosis, or any other condition that might affect the absorption of lenvatinib

- Has had major surgery within 4 weeks prior to first dose of study interventions
(adequate wound healing after major surgery must be assessed clinically, independent
of time elapsed for eligibility)

- Has radiographic evidence of major blood vessel invasion/infiltration

- Has clinically significant hemoptysis or tumor bleeding within 2 weeks prior to the
first dose of study drug

study drug, including New York Heart Association Class III or IV congestive heart
failure, unstable angina, myocardial infarction, cerebral vascular accident, or
cardiac arrhythmia associated with hemodynamic instability

- Has received prior radiotherapy within 2 weeks of Cycle 1 Day 1 with the exception of
palliative radiotherapy to bone lesions, which is allowed if completed 2 weeks prior
to Cycle 1 Day 1

- Has received a live vaccine within 30 days before the first dose of study treatment

- Is currently participating in or has participated in a study of an investigational
agent or has used an investigational device within 4 weeks prior to the first dose of
study treatment

- Has a history or has current evidence of any condition, therapy, or laboratory
abnormality that might confound the results of the study, interfere with the
participation for the full duration of the study, or is not in the best interest of
the participant to participate, in the opinion of the treating investigator
