Primary objective :

The aim of this clinical trial is to assess the effect of treatment with a monoclonal antibody called atezolizumab in patients diagnosed with a type of lung cancer called malignant pleural mesothelioma. The efficacy (whether the treatment works), safety and tolerability (side effects of treatment) of atezolizumab plus bevacizumab in combination with standard chemotherapy versus bevacizumab in combination with standard chemotherapy will be investigated.+41
