Syndax Pharmaceuticals (SNDX), and Merck (MRK) announced that they have entered into a clinical trial collaboration to evaluate the safety and efficacy of combining Syndax’s entinostat, an investigational epigenetic therapy, with Merck’s KEYTRUDA, the first anti-PD-1 therapy approved in the United States.

The study is expected to begin enrolling patients in the second half of 2015. The financial terms and additional details of the agreement between Syndax and Merck, through a subsidiary, were not disclosed. The agreement includes a provision where the parties may extend the collaboration to include a potential Phase 3 clinical trial.
