A Phase 1 Dose-Escalation and Phase 2 Randomized, Open-Label Study of Nivolumab and Veliparib in Combination With Platinum Doublet Chemotherapy in Subjects With Metastatic or Advanced Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer (NSCLC)

This study seeks to establish the recommended Phase 2 dose (RPTD) of veliparib in combination with nivolumab and platinum doublet chemotherapy (carboplatin/paclitaxel or carboplatin/pemetrexed) (Phase 1 portion) and to assess whether the addition of nivolumab to veliparib in combination with platinum doublet chemotherapy results will improve progression free survival (PFS) compared to veliparib with platinum doublet chemotherapy alone in participants with metastatic or advanced Non-small Cell Lung Cancer (NSCLC) (Phase 2 portion). A strategy decision was made not to proceed to Phase 2 portion of this study due to change in standard of care.
