Study Summary

This trial is testing cabozantinib with or without nivolumab versus standard chemotherapy in patients with non-squamous non-small cell lung cancer.

Who is the study for?
This trial is for adults with non-squamous non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) who've had one round of platinum-based chemo and checkpoint inhibitor immunotherapy. They must have manageable side effects from past treatments, no major organ issues, can swallow pills, and have no severe heart conditions or untreated viral infections. Pregnant individuals or those planning to conceive are excluded.Check my eligibility
What is being tested?
The study tests if cabozantinib alone or combined with nivolumab is more effective than standard chemotherapy in NSCLC treatment. Cabozantinib blocks enzymes needed for tumor growth; nivolumab boosts the immune system's cancer fight. Standard chemo drugs kill or stop cancer cells from growing.See study design
What are the potential side effects?
Cabozantinib may cause liver problems, high blood pressure, mouth sores, hand-foot syndrome (redness and pain on palms/soles), and diarrhea. Nivolumab might lead to immune-related inflammation in organs like lungs or intestines, skin rash, fatigue, and infusion reactions.

Patients in Step 1, Arm B receive cabozantinib S-malate PO QD and nivolumab IV over 30 minutes on day 1. Cycles repeat every 21 days in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity. Patients may continue to receive therapy after investigator-assessed RECIST 1.1 defined progression, including stable clinical and performance status and have potential for continued clinical benefit. Patients also undergo ECHO as clinically indicated, CT throughout the trial, and collection of blood on study.
Group III: Step 1, Arm A (cabozantinib S-malate)Experimental Treatment4 Interventions
Patients in Step 1, Arm A receive cabozantinib S-malate PO QD. Cycles repeat every 21 days in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity. Patients may continue to receive therapy after investigator-assessed RECIST 1.1 defined progression, including stable clinical and performance status and have potential for continued clinical benefit. Patients also undergo ECHO as clinically indicated, CT throughout the trial, and collection of blood on study.
Group IV: Step 1, Arm C (standard chemotherapy)Active Control8 Interventions
