The purpose of this study is to studying neoadjuvant IBI308, bevacizumab, plus pemetrexed and carboplatin followed by surgery to see how well it works in treating patients with unresectable stage III non-small cell lung cancer.


Concurrent chemoradiotherapy is the recommended therapeutic approach for patients with unresectable stage III non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC), although surgery offers the chance of cure. With combined-modality therapy with radiation therapy and chemotherapy, the prognosis of stage III NSCLC remains poor. IBI308 (sintilimab) is a recombinant humanized anti-PD-1 monoclonal antibody. This study is to studying neoadjuvant IBI308, bevacizumab, plus pemetrexed and carboplatin followed by surgery to see how well it works in treating patients with unresectable stage III non-small cell lung cancer.

Exclusion Criteria

Known severe hypersensitivity to IBI308 or any of the excipients of this product
Prior therapy with anti-PD-1, anti-PD-L1, anti-PD-L2, or anti-CTLA-4 antibody (including any other antibody or drug specifically targeting T-cell co-stimulation or checkpoint pathways)
Prior chemotherapy or radiotherapy
Subjects with active, known or suspected autoimmune disease. Subjects in conditions not expected to recur in the absence of an external trigger, or not requiring systemic treatment are permitted to enroll
Subjects with a condition requiring systemic treatment with either corticosteroids (>10 mg daily prednisone equivalent) or other immunosuppressive medications within 14 days of first administration of study treatment. Inhaled or topical steroids, and adrenal replacement steroid doses > 10 mg daily prednisone equivalent, are permitted in the absence of active autoimmune disease
Inability to comply with protocol or study procedures
A serious concomitant systemic disorder that, in the opinion of the investigator, would compromise the patient's ability to complete the study
A serious cardiac condition, such as myocardial infarction within 6 months, angina, or heart disease
History of another malignancy in the last 5 years with the exception of the following: other malignancies cured by surgery alone and having a continuous disease-free interval of 5 years are permitted. Cured basal cell carcinoma of the skin and cured in situ carcinoma of the uterine cervix are permitted
Any unstable systemic disease (including active infection, uncontrolled hypertension, unstable angina, congestive heart failure, myocardial infarction within the previous year, serious cardiac arrhythmia requiring medication, hepatic, renal, or metabolic disease)
Patient who has active serious infection (e.g. pyrexia of or 38.0 over)
Known history of testing positive for human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) or known acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS)
Known history of active Hepatitis B or C
Women who are pregnant or nursing
Evidence of any other disease, neurological or metabolic dysfunction, physical examination or laboratory finding giving reasonable suspicion of a disease or condition that contraindicated the use of an investigational drug or puts the subject at high risk for treatment-related complications
