Study Summary

This trial is testing cabozantinib with or without nivolumab versus standard chemotherapy in patients with non-squamous non-small cell lung cancer. The FDA has approved the use of Arm B (cabozantinib S-malate, nivolumab) to treat patients with Lung Cancer. This is the first time that this combination of drugs has been approved to treat this particular condition. Patients in this trial will not receive a placebo.
