Purpose: This randomized, open-label study will evaluate the safety and efficacy of Atezolizumab (MPDL3280A) in combination with carboplatin and paclitaxel with or without bevacizumab compared with treatment with carboplatin plus (+) paclitaxel and bevacizumab in chemotherapy-naïve patients with Stage IV non-squamous non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC).

  • Pregnant or lactating women
  • History of autoimmune disease
  • History of idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis, organizing pneumonia, drug induced pneumonitis, idiopathic pneumonitis, or evidence of active pneumonitis on screening chest Computed Tomography (CT) scan. History of radiation pneumonitis in the radiation field (fibrosis) is permitted.
  • Positive test for Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV)
