This study will test whether vaccination with viagenpumatucel-L combined with low-dose cyclophosphamide will prolong the survival of patients with non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) who have failed 2 or 3 prior lines of therapy for incurable or metastatic disease compared with chemotherapy alone. Patients will be randomized 2 to 1 into the viagenpumatucel-L arm and the chemotherapy alone arm, respectively.

Official Title

A Phase 2, Multicenter, Randomized Study to Evaluate the Safety and Efficacy of Viagenpumatucel-L (HS-110) in Combination With Low Dose (Metronomic) Cyclophosphamide Versus Chemotherapy Alone in Patients With Non-Small Cell Lung Adenocarcinoma After Failure of Two or Three Previous Treatment Regimens for Advanced Disease
