Pragmatica-Lung: A Prospective Randomized Study of Ramucirumab (LY3009806; NSC 749128) Plus Pembrolizumab (MK-3475; NSC 776864) Versus Standard of Care for Participants Previously Treated With Immunotherapy for Stage IV or Recurrent Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer


We are comparing the effectiveness of the combination of ramucirumab and pembrolizumab compared to the usual chemotherapy for the treatment of non-small cell lung cancer that is stage IV or that has come back after a period of improvement (recurrent). The drugs work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells. We will compare how well the treatment regimens work and the side effects that occur.

I'm interested
