Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Canakinumab with Chemoradiation and Durvalumab
Treatment will consist of canakinumab (ACZ885) administered as a subcutaneous injection every 3 weeks for 3 cycles concurrent with standard of care concurrent chemoradiation, followed by canakinumab administered intravenously every 4 weeks for up to 12 total infusions concurrent with standard of care durvalumab. Canakinumab (ACZ885) will be dosed at 200mg via subcutaneous injection every 3 weeks x 3 injections that will start with concurrent chemoradiation, followed by 200mg via intravenous infusion every 4 weeks x 12 infusions that will start with the initiation of durvalumab. Canakinumab (ACZ885) will be concurrent with thoracic chemoradiation and durvalumab therapy for up to 15 cycles, or until disease progression or unacceptable toxicity, whichever occurs first.
Drug: Canakinumab
Treatment will consist of canakinumab (ACZ885) administered as a subcutaneous injection every 3 weeks for 3 cycles concurrent with standard of care concurrent chemoradiation, followed by canakinumab (ACZ885) administered intravenously every 4 weeks for up to 12 total infusions concurrent with standard of care durvalumab.
Other Name: ACZ885

Drug: Durvalumab
Consolidative durvalumab therapy will be as per standard of care in accordance with institutional practice and at the discretion of the treating oncologist.

Radiation: Radiation therapy
Radiation therapy will be performed with external beam ionizing radiation as per standard of care in accordance with institutional practice. Intensity-modulated radiation therapy (IMRT) or volumetric arc therapy (VMAT) will be used at the discretion of the treating radiation oncologist. Patients will be simulated in the treatment position with standard immobilization techniques for thoracic radiotherapy. The prescription dose will be 60 Gy (±10%) in 2Gy fractions to fields encompassing gross tumor and lymph nodes, as per institutional guidelines. The dose must satisfy institutional guidelines and minimize risk to adjacent organs at risk.

Drug: Chemotherapy
Chemotherapy will be as per standard of care in accordance with institutional practice. Patients will be treated with carboplatin or cisplatin with etoposide, paclitaxel, albumin-bound paclitaxel or pemetrexed at the discretion of the treating thoracic medical oncologist. Chemotherapy will be concurrent with radiation therapy as per standard practice, with cycle 1 day 1 of chemotherapy starting on fraction 1 of radiation ± 5 days.




Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. progression-free survival [ Time Frame: 2 years ]

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Rate of grade ≥ 2 pneumonitis [ Time Frame: 2 years ]
