- Progression Free Survival (PFS1) [ Time Frame: 24 months after randomization of the last subject ]Time between the date of randomization and the first date of documented progression, as determined by BICR (Blinded Independent Central Review), or death due to any cause, whichever occurs first.
- Progression Free Survival (PFS2) [ Time Frame: 24 months after randomization of the last subject ]Time between the start date of the second line and the second date of documented progression, as determined by BICR, or death due to any cause, whichever occurs first.
- Quality of life (QoL) [ Time Frame: 24 months after randomization of the last subject ]Time until definitive deterioration (TUDD) from the randomization time in the experimental arm B.
- Overall survival (OS) [ Time Frame: 6, 12 and 18 months after randomization ]
- Biological correlative exploratory studies (PD-L1) [ Time Frame: 6 months ]PD-L1-stained % of tumor cells will be associated to the rate of disease control patients at 6 months, PFS1, PFS2 and OS

- Biological correlative exploratory studies (CD3/CD8) [ Time Frame: 6 months ]CD3/CD8 tumor infiltration will be associated to the rate of disease control patients at 6 months, PFS1, PFS2 and OS
- Biological correlative exploratory studies (neutrophil) [ Time Frame: 6 months ]neutrophil tumor infiltration will be associated to the rate of disease control patients at 6 months, PFS1, PFS2 and OS
- Biological correlative exploratory studies (cytokines) [ Time Frame: 6 months ]plasma concentration of different cytokines at baseline or at the randomization point, will be associated to the rate of disease control patients at 6 months, PFS1, PFS2 and OS
- Biological correlative exploratory studies (chemokines) [ Time Frame: 6 months ]plasma concentration of different chemokines at baseline or at the randomization point, will be associated to the rate of disease control patients at 6 months, PFS1, PFS2 and OS

|Ages Eligible for Study:||18 Years to 75 Years (Adult, Older Adult)|
|Sexes Eligible for Study:||All|
|Accepts Healthy Volunteers:||No|
Signed Written Informed Consent:
Subjects must have signed and dated an IRB/IEC approved written informed consent form in accordance with regulatory and institutional guidelines. This must be obtained before the performance of any protocol related procedures that are not part of normal subject care.
Subjects must be willing and able to comply with scheduled visits, treatment schedule, and laboratory testing.
- Histologically-proven NSCLC (squamous or non-squamous)
- Stage IV (M1, including M1a pleural involvement) disease (8th classification TNM, UICC 2015)
- ECOG PS < 1
- Weight loss< 10% in previous 3 months
- No prior systemic anticancer therapy (including EGFR or ALK inhibitors) given as primary therapy for advanced or metastatic disease.
- Age≥ 18 years, <75 years
- Life expectancy > 3 months
- Measurable tumor disease by CT or MRI per RECIST 1.1 criteria
- Available tumor samples for centralized PD-L1 immunohistochemistry analysis
- PD-L1 tumor content ≥ 1% and < 50% tumor cells as assessed locally by the investigator center
Adequate biological functions:
Creatinine Clearance ≥ 50 mL/min (Cockcroft or MDRD or CKD-epi); neutrophiles ≥ 1500/mm3 ; platelets ≥100 000/mm3 ; Hemoglobin ≥ 9g/dL ; hepatic enzymes < 3x ULN, total bilirubin ≤ 1,5 x ULN except for patients with proved, Gilbert syndrome (≤ 5 x ULN) or patients with hepatic metastases (≤ 3,0 mg/dL)
Women of childbearing potential (WOCBP) and sexually active should use an efficacious contraception method within the 28 days preceding the first dose and during the 6 months following the last dose of treatment. Women must have a negative serum or urine pregnancy test (minimum sensitivity 25 IU/L or equivalent units of HCG) within 24 hours prior to the start of study drug.
For Male subjects who are sexually active with WOCBP, an efficacious contraception method should be used during the treatment and during the 7 months following the last dose.
Investigators shall counsel WOCBP and male subjects who are sexually active with WOCBP on the importance of pregnancy prevention and the implications of an unexpected pregnancy. Investigators shall advise WOCBP and male subjects who are sexually active with WOCBP on the use of highly effective methods of contraception. Highly effective methods of contraception have a failure rate of < 1% when used consistently and correctly. At a minimum, subjects must agree to the use of two methods of contraception, with one method being highly effective and the other method being either highly effective or less effective.
