NameTypeDescriptionInterventions
Pembrolizumab+PemetrexedExperimental200 mg of pembrolizumab is intravenously infused over 30 minutes and more on day 1. 500 mg/m^2 of pemetrexed is intravenously infused over 10 minutes and more on day 1. *Administration of folic acid and vitamin B12 is started 1 week before the start of treatment with pemetrexed. And repeat the administration every 3 weeks as one cycle until the treatment cessation criteria are met. Upper limit of the pembrolizumab administration is 35 cycles, and the pemetrexed administration will continue until the treatment cessation criteria are met.

          1. Non-squamous non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) confirmed by histology or cytology.

          2. Not received prior systemic treatment with stage IV, or recurrent NSCLC. Subjects who
             received adjuvant therapy are eligible if the adjuvant therapy was completed at least
             12 months prior to the development of metastatic disease.

          3. PD-L1 TPS of less than 50% with 22C3 antibody.

          4. With at least one measurable lesion based on RECIST 1.1.

          5. Age of 75 years or older on the day of informed consent.

          6. ECOG Performance Status 0-1.

          7. Without activating mutation in EGFR or ALK chromosomal translocation.

          8. Absence of severe impairments of major organs.

          9. Life expectancy of 12 weeks or more from the treatment start date.

         10. Prior to the study registration, able to provide written informed consent after a
             thorough explanation of the study content.

        Exclusion Criteria:

             Had major surgery (<3 weeks prior to the first dose)

          2. Received radiation therapy to the lung that exceeds 30 Gy within 6 months of the first
             dose of the study treatment.

          3. Completed palliative radiotherapy within 7 days of the first dose of the treatment.

          4. Has received a live-virus vaccination within 30 days of planned treatment initiation.

             Seasonal flu vaccines that do not contain live virus are permitted.

          5. Has clinically active diverticulitis, intra-abdominal abscess, GI obstruction,
             peritoneal carcinomatosis.

          6. Has a history of malignancy except if the subject has undergone curative therapy
             without recurrence for 5 years since initiation of that therapy.

          7. Has known active central nervous system (CNS) metastases and/or carcinomatous
             meningitis.

          8. Previously had a severe hypersensitivity reaction to treatment with another mAb.

          9. Has a known sensitivity to any component of pemetrexed

         10. Has active autoimmune disease that has required systemic treatment in past 2 years

         11. Is on chronic systemic steroids. Subjects with asthma that require intermittent use of
             bronchodilators, inhaled steroids, or local steroid injections would not be excluded
             from the study.

         12. Is unable to interrupt aspirin or other nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs),

         16. Has a history of Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV)

         17. Has known active Hepatitis B or C. Active Hepatitis B is defined as a known positive
             HBsAg result.

         18. Has a history or current evidence of any condition, therapy, or laboratory abnormality
             that might confound the results of the study, interfere with the subject's
             participation for the full duration of the study, or is not in the best interest of
             the subject to participate, in the opinion of the Principal Investigator.

         19. Has symptomatic ascites or pleural effusion.

         20. Has a history of (non-infectious) pneumonitis that required steroids or current
             pneumonitis.
