What is Involved?

This study has 2 parts: a screening period and a study dosing period.

If you join this study, during the screening period you will:
- Have blood draws
- Visit the clinic for various tests to see if you’re eligible for the dosing period

If you're eligible for the dosing period, you will:
- Have blood draws
- Have imaging scans (CT and MRI)
- Be randomized (like flipping a coin) to get:
-- Before surgery: the study drug (durvalumab) given by injection into a vein or a placebo (inactive substance) plus standard chemotherapy (over a period of 12 weeks before surgery)
-- After surgery: the study drug or placebo for up to 1 year
