  • Have active or prior autoimmune or inflammatory disorders
  • Have history of another primary cancer
  • Have history of organ transplantation
  • Have active infection of Tuberculosis, Hepatitis B, Hepatitis C or HIV

Additional Info

  • All patients will receive standard of care stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT), and will be randomly selected to receive either Durvalumab or placebo via intravenous (IV) infusion.
