Inclusion Criteria:
  • Eligible subjects selected for this study must meet all of the following criteria:
  1. Sign written informed consent before implementing any trial-related procedures;

  2. Age ≥18 years old and ≤75 years old; No limit on the gender;

  3. Previously untreated, histologically confirmed resectable stage II, IIIA, IIIB (N2) (AJCC stage VIII) NSCLC; cTNM stage can be confirmed by PET-CT or pathological biopsy; resectable stage II non-small cell lung cancer is defined as radical resection as assessed by a qualified thoracic surgeon; resectable is resectable and potentially resectable as defined by the Expert Consensus on Multidisciplinary Diagnosis and Treatment of Stage III Non-small Cell Lung Cancer (2019 version); resectable includes IIIA (N0-1), some single-station mediastinal lymph node metastases with N2 and some T4 (satellite nodules present in adjacent lobes) N1; potentially resectable includes some stage IIIA and IIIB, including single-station N2 mediastinal lymph node short diameter < 3 cm stage IIIA NSCLC, potentially resectable T3 or T4 central tumors; Solid/solid pulmonary nodules, not pure ground-glass opacity (GGO), are strongly recommended for pathological puncture verification;

  4. Patients diagnosed with squamous cell carcinoma do not require genetic testing, and if they test positive for EGFR, ALK or ROS1, they are considered as exclusion criteria; if they are adenocarcinoma, they must undergo genetic testing containing at least EGFR, ALK and ROS1, and the acceptable detection method is ARMS or NGS, of which NGS is a cFDA-approved kit;

  5. Measurable disease by Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumors version 1.1;

  6. Twenty tissue sections (4-6 microns in thickness) should be submitted before enrollment for biomarker evaluation (tumor tissue samples must be fresh or archival samples obtained within 3 months before enrollment; fresh tissues must be biopsy specimens by hollow needle aspiration, resection or incision);

  7. ECOG score 0-1;

  8. Good organ function: (1) hematology: absolute neutrophil count (ANC) ≥ 1500/μL; platelets ≥ 100,000/μL; hemoglobin ≥ 9.0 g/dL or ≥ 5.6 mmol/L; (2) kidney: serum creatinine ≤ 1.5 times ULN or calculated creatinine clearance (CrCl) ≥ 60 mL/min (using the Cock-Gault formula); (3) liver: total bilirubin ≤ 1.5 × ULN or for subjects with total bilirubin levels > 1.5 × ULN, direct bilirubin is within normal limits; AST (SGOT) and ALT (SGPT) ≤ 2.5 × ULN; (4) endocrine system: thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH) is within normal limits. Note: If TSH is not within normal range at baseline, if T3 and free T4 are within normal range, then the subject can still meet the inclusion criteria; (5) Coagulation function: international normalized ratio (INR) or prothrombin time (PT), activated partial thromboplastin time (aPTT) ≤ 1.5 × ULN, except: subjects receiving anticoagulant therapy, as long as PT or aPTT is within the proposed use range of anticoagulant drugs; (6) Cardiac function tests: baseline ECG showed no PR interval prolongation or atrioventricular block;

  9. The total lung function can withstand the proposed pneumonectomy surgery according to the surgeon's assessment;

  10. Women should agree to use contraceptive measures (such as intrauterine device (IUD), contraceptives or condoms) during the study and within 6 months after the end of the study; serum or urine pregnancy test is negative within 7 days before study entry, and must be non-lactating patients; men should agree to use contraceptive measures during the study and within 6 months after the end of the study period.

  9. Subjects with active hepatitis B (defined as positive hepatitis B virus surface antigen [HBsAg] test results and HBV-DNA test values higher than the upper limit of normal of the laboratory of the study site) or hepatitis C (defined as positive hepatitis C virus surface antibody [HCsAb] test results and positive HCV-RNA test results during the screening period);

  10. Known human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection (known HIV antibody positive);
