Primary Objective:

•To assess the tolerability and to determine the recommended doses of tusamitamab ravtansine in combination with pembrolizumab and tusamitamab ravtansine in combination with pembrolizumab and platinum-based chemotherapy with or without pemetrexed in the NSQ NSCLC population

Secondary Objectives:

  • To assess the safety and tolerability of tusamitamab ravtansine in combination with pembrolizumab and tusamitamab ravtansine in combination with pembrolizumab and platinum-based chemotherapy with or without pemetrexed
  • To assess the antitumor activity of tusamitamab ravtansine in combination with pembrolizumab and tusamitamab ravtansine in combination with pembrolizumab, and platinum-based chemotherapy, with or without pemetrexed in the NSQ NSCLC population
  • To assess the pharmacokinetics (PK) of tusamitamab ravtansine, pembrolizumab, pemetrexed, cisplatin, and carboplatin, each when given in combination as a doublet (tusamitamab ravtansine + pembrolizumab) or triplet (tusamitamab ravtansine + pembrolizumab + platinum-based chemotherapy) or a quadruplet (tusamitamab ravtansine + pembrolizumab + platinum-based chemotherapy + pemetrexed)
  • To assess the immunogenicity of tusamitamab ravtansine in combination with pembrolizumab and tusamitamab ravtansine in combination with pembrolizumab and platinum-based chemotherapy with or without pemetrexed


The expected duration of the study intervention for participants may vary based on progression date; median expected duration of study per participant is estimated 10 months (up to 1 month for screening, a median of 6 months for treatment, and a median of 3 months for end-of-treatment assessments and safety follow-up visit).
