"This trial is testing a new drug, AK112, in combination with standard chemotherapy in patients with a specific type of lung cancer who have not responded to previous treatments."

Who is the study for?
This trial is for adults with advanced non-squamous NSCLC that has worsened after EGFR-TKI treatment. Participants must be in good physical condition, have measurable cancer, and acceptable organ function. They can't join if they've had certain other cancers, serious heart conditions, immune diseases or lung issues unrelated to their cancer.Check my eligibility
What is being tested?
The study tests AK112 injection versus a placebo. Both are given alongside standard chemotherapy drugs Pemetrexed and Carboplatin. It's randomized and double-blind, meaning neither the patients nor doctors know who gets AK112 or the placebo.See study design
What are the potential side effects?
Possible side effects of AK112 may include typical reactions to immunotherapy such as fatigue, skin rash, diarrhea, liver inflammation and potential infusion-related reactions.

Experimental Treatment
Active Control
Group I: AK112 in combination with Pemetrexed and CarboplatinExperimental Treatment1 Intervention
Subjects will receive AK112 Plus Pemetrexed and Carboplatin via intravenous infusion (IV) Q3W, up to 4 cycles. Afterward, AK112 Plus Pemetrexed will be used for maintenance treatment (administered on Day 1 of each cycle, Q3W) up to 2 years.
Group II: Placebo in combination with Pemetrexed and CarboplatinActive Control1 Intervention
Subjects will receive Placebo Plus Pemetrexed and Carboplatin via intravenous infusion (IV) Q3W, up to 4 cycles in treatment periods per the randomization schedule. Afterward, Placebo Plus Pemetrexed will be used for maintenance treatment (administered on Day 1 of each cycle, Q3W) up to 2 years.
