A Study of CS1001 in Subjects With Stage IV Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer


About the study

This is a multi-center, randomized, double-blind, phase III study to evaluate the efficacy and safety of CS1001 in combination with platinum-containing chemotherapy versus placebo in combination with chemotherapy in first-line treatment-naive subjects with stage IV non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC).
