Welcome to our website for the KICKSTART study, a clinical research study for people with stage IIIb or IV non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC).

The KICKSTART study is evaluating an investigational immunotherapy for NSCLC to be added on to an approved immunotherapy.

Why is the KICKSTART Study Important?

According to the American Lung Association, non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) makes up over 85% of all lung cancer cases. Although progress has been made, lung cancer is still the leading cause of cancer deaths, causing more deaths than breast, prostate, and colon cancers combined.

Lung cancer research is necessary to develop new medications to help provide better treatment options. Before new medications can be approved for public use, they must be tested in research studies like this one.
