Anetumab Ravtansine and Atezolizumab in Treating Participants With Advanced Non-small Cell Lung Cancer

Overview

About this study

This phase I/II trial studies the best dose and side effects of anetumab ravtansine when given together with atezolizumab and how well they work in treating participants with non-small cell lung cancer that has spread to other places in the body. Monoclonal antibodies, such as anetumab ravtansine and atezolizumab, may interfere with the ability of tumor cells to grow and spread.
