The preparation is in the treatment of metastatic or inoperable melanoma, classical lymphocytoma, dermoid and urothelial cancer, and other types of tumors resistant to standard methods of treatment.
How does This Medicine work?
Keytruda regulates intravenously two or three times a week. The length of treatment is set individually.
