What is being tested?
The study compares the effectiveness of Volrustomig combined with Carboplatin and Pemetrexed against either platinum plus Pemetrexed or Nivolumab plus Ipilimumab. It's a phase III trial where participants are randomly assigned to receive one of these treatments to see which works best for unresectable pleural mesothelioma.See study design
What are the potential side effects?
Potential side effects include reactions related to immune system activation such as inflammation in various organs, infusion-related reactions from the drugs being administered intravenously, fatigue from treatment burden on the body's resources, possible blood cell count changes affecting immunity and oxygen transport.
