A Randomized Double Blind Phase II Trial of Restorative Microbiota Therapy (RMT) or Placebo in Combination with Durvalumab (MEDI4736) and Tremelimumab With Chemotherapy in Treatment Naive Advanced or Metastatic Adenocarcinoma Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer


The investigational therapy in this study is referred to as Restorative Microbiota Therapy (RMT). It is prepared by extracting healthy bacteria from the stool of healthy human donors and making it into capsules taken by mouth. The donor stool samples are rigorously tested for harmful bacteria and viruses before processing. There is scientific evidence to suggest that RMT might make immunotherapy more effective. The primary goal of the study is to test if RMT makes durvalumab + tremelimumab treatment with chemotherapy more effective to control lung cancer.
