For Clinical Trials conducted in EUROPE:
European trials can be found through Orphanet.
Orphanet is a unique resource, gathering and improving knowledge on rare diseases so as to improve the diagnosis, care and treatment of patients with rare diseases. Orphanet aims to provide high-quality information on rare diseases, and ensure equal access to knowledge for all stakeholders. Orphanet also maintains the Orphanet rare disease nomenclature (ORPHAnumber), essential in improving the visibility of rare diseases in health and research information systems.
Orphanet was established in France by the INSERM (French National Institute for Health and Medical Research) in 1997.This initiative became a European endeavour from 2000, supported by grants from the European Commission: Orphanet has gradually grown to a Consortium of 40 countries, within Europe and across the globe.

The ClinicalTrials.gov Glossary of Common Site Terms defines terms used on their website.
View: KEYNOTE Oncology Clinical Immunotherapy Trials for Solid Tumors:
Pembrolizumab is an investigational immunotherapy that may help the body’s immune system attack cancer cells. When a cancer cell binds to an immune cell, the immune cell can’t do its job. These trials want to see if pembrolizumab can block cancer cells from binding with immune cells to help allow the immune cells to work properly.
Participating in a clinical trial is an important decision. Anyone participating in a trial should know as much as possible about what is being studied, what risks are involved and what potential benefits may be gained before deciding to enroll. If you are interested in participating in a clinical trial, please talk to your doctor first.
