Eli Lilly & Co. expands immuno-oncology collaboration with Merck
They will add a new study of Lilly's Lartruvo (olaratumab) with Keytruda (pembrolizumab) in patients with previously treated advanced or metastatic soft tissue sarcoma (STS).

Lartruvo in combination with doxorubicin, also recently received conditional marketing authorization from the European Medicines Agency for the treatment of adults with advanced STS not amenable to curative treatment. ■
