A Study of Tiragolumab in Combination With Atezolizumab Plus Pemetrexed and Carboplatin/Cisplatin Versus Pembrolizumab Plus Pemetrexed and Carboplatin/Cisplatin in Participants With Previously Untreated Advanced Non-Squamous Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer


Brief Summary

The purpose of this study is to evaluate the efficacy, safety, and pharmacokinetics of tiragolumab in combination with atezolizumab plus pemetrexed and carboplatin/cisplatin (Arm A) compared with placebo in combination with pembrolizumab plus pemetrexed and carboplatin/cisplatin (Arm B) in participants with previously untreated, locally advanced unresectable or metastatic non-squamous non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC).

Eligible participants will be randomized in a 1:1 ratio to receive one of the following treatment regimens during the induction phase:

  • Arm A: Tiragolumab plus atezolizumab plus pemetrexed and carboplatin or cisplatin
  • Arm B: Placebo plus pembrolizumab plus pemetrexed and carboplatin or cisplatin

Following the induction phase, participants will continue maintenance therapy with either tiragolumab in combination with atezolizumab and pemetrexed (Arm A) or placebo in combination with pembrolizumab and pemetrexed (Arm B).

  • Measurable disease, as defined by Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumors, version 1.1 (RECIST v1.1)
  • Life expectancy >= 12 weeks
  • Adequate hematologic and end-organ function
  • Negative human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) test at screening

  • History of idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis, organizing pneumonia, drug-induced pneumonitis, or idiopathic pneumonitis, or evidence of active pneumonitis
  • History of malignancy other than NSCLC within 5 years prior to randomization, with the exception of malignancies with a negligible risk of metastasis or death
  • Severe infection within 4 weeks prior to initiation of study treatment or any active infection that, in the opinion of the investigator, could impact patient safety
  • Treatment with investigational therapy within 28 days prior to initiation of study treatment
  • Prior treatment with CD137 agonists or immune checkpoint blockade therapies, including anti-cytotoxic T lymphocyte-associated protein 4, anti-TIGIT, anti-PD-1, and anti-PD-L1 therapeutic antibodies
  • Treatment with systemic immunostimulatory agents within 4 weeks or 5 drug-elimination half-lives (whichever is longer) prior to initiation of study treatment
  • Treatment with systemic immunosuppressive medication within 2 weeks prior to initiation of study treatment, or anticipation of need for systemic immunosuppressive medication during study treatment
  • Known allergy or hypersensitivity or other contraindication to any component of the chemotherapy regimen the participant may receive during the study
  • Women who are pregnant, or breastfeeding
  • Known targetable c-ROS oncogene 1 (ROS1) or BRAFV600E genomic aberration.
