We are doing this study to learn about the safety and effectiveness of the investigational drug, pembrolizumab, with chemotherapy with or without radiation therapy when given for newly-diagnosed high-risk endometrial cancer.

Pembrolizumab is the study drug that works to help your immune system fight cancer cells.

What is the Condition Being Studied?

Newly-diagnosed High-Risk Endometrial Cancer

What is Involved?

If you agree to be in this study, you will:
- Be randomized (a fair 50/50 chance), to Group A or Group B
--- Group A will get the study drug (pembrolizumab) and paclitaxel and carboplatin every 3 weeks followed by 6 doses of pembrolizumab every 6 weeks
--- Group B will get a placebo (harmless saltwater) and paclitaxel and carboplatin every 3 weeks followed by 6 doses of placebo every 6 weeks

Both groups will get 4-6 doses of chemotherapy (paclitaxel and carboplatin) with 6 doses of pembrolizumab or placebo followed by 6 doses of pembrolizumab or placebo depending on your group assignment.

Radiation therapy may be given during the study with decision by you and your study doctor.

Long term follow-up contact will be made every 6 months for the first 2 years and then every year, indefinitely
