The efficacy and safety of anti-CTLA-4 molecules for the treatment of patients with non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) is currently under investigation. Ipilimumab has shown promise in treating patients with metastatic NSCLC in one phase II trial (Lynch et al. 2012). This has led to ongoing phase III trials of ipilimumab in the treatment of patients with metastatic NSCLC (NCT01285609; Langer 2014).
