  4. Progression-free survival [ Time Frame: Approximately 2-8 months ]
    Preliminary evidence of antitumor activity of carotuximab (TRC105) plus nivolumab will be evaluated, by assessing progression-free survival.

Inclusion Criteria:

  1. Histologically confirmed metastatic non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) with disease recurrence or progression during or after prior platinum-containing doublet chemotherapy regimen

    1. Patients with an active oncogenic driver (e.g., epidermal growth factor [EGFR], activin-receptor-like kinase 1 [ALK1], or the proto-oncogene tyrosine-protein kinase ROS-1) must have progressed on or after a US Food and Drug Administration (FDA)- approved therapy for that aberration (Note: Previous treatment with a tyrosine kinase inhibitor and platinum-based doublets does not exclude the patient.).
    2. Patients who received adjuvant or neoadjuvant platinum-doublet chemotherapy (after surgery and/or radiation therapy) and developed recurrent or metastatic disease within 6 months of completing therapy are not excluded.
    3. Patients with recurrent disease > 6 months after adjuvant or neoadjuvant platinum- based chemotherapy, who also subsequently progressed during or after a platinum- doublet regimen given to treat the recurrence, are not excluded.
  2. Formalin fixed, paraffin-embedded (FFPE) tumor tissue block or unstained slides of tumor sample (archival) - Biopsy should be excisional, incisional, or core. Needle aspiration is insufficient.

    6. Serum creatinine ≤ 1.5 times the ULN or creatinine clearance > 30 mL/min by Cockcroft-Gault formula
    7. International normalized ratio (INR) from 0.8 to 1.2

  23. Known human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) or acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) related illness.
  24. Pregnancy or breastfeeding - Female patients must be surgically sterile (i.e., ≥6 weeks following surgical bilateral oophorectomy with or without hysterectomy or tubal ligation) or be postmenopausal, or must agree to use effective contraception during the study and for 3 months following last dose of carotuximab (TRC105). All female patients of reproductive potential must have a negative pregnancy test (serum or urine) within 7 days prior to study treatment. Male patients must be surgically sterile or must agree to use effective contraception during the study and for 3 months following last dose of carotuximab (TRC105).
