Title Phase II Study of Consolidation Immunotherapy with Nivolumab and Ipilimumab or Nivolumab alone following Concurrent Chemoradiotherapy for Unresectable Stage IIIA/IIIB Non-small Cell Lung Cancer (NSCLC) Big Ten Cancer Research Consortium: BTCRC-LUN16-081

Objective The purpose of this study is to test the good and bad effects of the study drugs called nivolumab and ipilimumab when given after completing chemotherapy and radiation. Researchers hope that by giving you these medications after finishing treatment, they will lengthen the amount of time your disease is not active or does not spread to another part of your body

Treatment This study has two study groups
  • Group 1 will receive the study drug nivolumab
  • Group 2 will receive study drugs nivolumab and ipilimumab
