Neoadjuvant and Adjuvant Therapy Studies of Sindilizumab in Resectable Lung Cancer


About the study

This study is a multi-regional, randomized, double-blind Phase 3 study to compare the efficacy and safety of sintilimab plus chemotherapy (sintilimab combination) vs placebo plus chemotherapy (placebo combination) before surgery and sintilimab vs placebo after surgery in treatment-naive subjects with resectable Stage IIB (primary tumor > 4 cm) to IIIB (resectable N2 only) non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC).
