  Purpose
This randomized phase III trial studies how well nivolumab after surgery and chemotherapy work in treating patients with stage IB-IIIA non-small cell lung cancer. Monoclonal antibodies, such as nivolumab, may stimulate the immune system in different ways and kill tumor cells remaining after surgery and standard of care chemotherapy.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Disease-free survival [ Time Frame: Time from randomization to the earliest event defined as disease any new lung cancer (even in the opposite lung), or death from any cause at any known point in time, assessed up to 10 years ]
    DFS distributions will be estimated using the Kaplan-Meier method, and Cox proportional hazards models will be used to estimate the treatment hazard ratios. The primary comparisons of DFS will use a logrank tests stratified on the randomization stratification factors with a one-sided type I error rate of 0.5% for DFS. Other comparisons of groups will be made using the logrank test and Cox modeling. Point estimates of all endpoints will be accompanied by the corresponding confidence intervals adjusted for the type I error rates associated with the endpoint. Subset analyses are planned for all s

  • Overall survival [ Time Frame: Time from randomization to death from any cause, assessed up to 10 years ]
    OS distributions will be estimated using the Kaplan-Meier method, and Cox proportional hazards models will be used to estimate the treatment hazard ratios. The primary comparisons of OS will use a logrank tests stratified on the randomization stratification factors with a one-sided type I error rate of 2.0% for OS. Other comparisons of groups will be made using the logrank test and Cox modeling. Point estimates of all endpoints will be accompanied by the corresponding confidence intervals adjusted for the type I error rates associated with the endpoint. Subset analyses are planned for all stra


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Incidence of toxicity graded according to Common Terminology Criteria for Adverse Events version 4.0 [ Time Frame: Up to 10 years ]
    Toxicity rates will be compared using Fisher's exact tests with a one-sided type I error rate of 2.5%; multivariable logistic regression modeling will be used to adjust for the effect of any covariates that are associated with these categorical outcomes. Point estimates of all endpoints will be accompanied by the corresponding confidence intervals adjusted for the type I error rates associated with the endpoint. Subset analyses are planned for all stratification factors and all known prognostic factors such as performance status, age, gender, etc.

Detailed Description:

PRIMARY OBJECTIVES:

I. To evaluate whether adjuvant therapy with nivolumab will result in improved overall survival (OS) and/or disease-free survival (DFS) over standard observation in patients with stage IB >= 4 cm, II and IIIA, non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) following surgical resection and standard adjuvant therapy.

SECONDARY OBJECTIVES:

I. To evaluate the safety profile of nivolumab when given as an adjuvant therapy.

II. To evaluate and compare disease free and overall survival in patients with tumors that express programmed cell death ligand (PD-L)1 in various patterns associated with nivolumab and standard observation.

III. To evaluate and compare disease free and overall survival in patients with tumors that have high mutational load associated with nivolumab and standard observation.

IV. To evaluate OS and DFS by stage. V. To evaluate OS and DFS by each stratification factor. VI. To evaluate the proportion of patients alive and progression free at 1 year, 2 years, and 5 years (OS and DFS rate).

OUTLINE: Patients are randomized to 1 of 2 treatment arms.

ARM I: Patients receive nivolumab intravenously (IV) over 30 minutes on day 1. Courses repeat every 2 weeks for up to 1 year in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.

ARM II: Patients are followed serially with imaging.

After completion of study treatment, patients are followed up at 6 weeks, every 3 months for 2 years, every 6 months for 2 years, and then every 12 months for 6 years.
