  • An mGPS of 1 or 2 as defined below: *Criteria:
    • C-reactive protein >10 mg/L AND albumin ≥35 g/L; Score = 1
    • C-reactive protein >10 mg L AND albumin <35 g/L; Score = 2
  • Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group (ECOG) performance status of 0 to 1.
  • Adequate renal, hepatic, and bone marrow function demonstrated by protocol-specified laboratory parameters at the screening visit.

  • Squamous or mixed histology (eg, adenosquamous) NSCLC
  • Previous systemic therapy for advanced or metastatic disease.
  • Known active central nervous system (CNS) metastases.
  • Current or previous other malignancy within 2 years of study entry, except cured basal or squamous cell skin cancer, superficial bladder cancer, prostate intraepithelial neoplasm, carcinoma in situ of the cervix, or other noninvasive or indolent malignancy without sponsor approval.
  • Current uncontrolled cardiac disease such as angina or myocardial infarction, congestive heart failure including New York Heart Association functional classification of 3, or arrhythmia requiring treatment.
