BLP25 Liposome Vaccine and Bevacizumab After Chemotherapy and Radiation Therapy in Treating Patients With Newly Diagnosed Stage IIIA or Stage IIIB Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer That Cannot Be Removed by Surgery

The purpose of this study is to find out what effects, good and/or bad, the addition of L-BLP25 vaccine and bevacizumab to the commonly used treatment of paclitaxel, carboplatin, and thoracic radiation therapy (radiation to the chest) has on lung cancer. This research is being done because we want to see if the investigational drug L-BLP25 with bevacizumab will improve on the results of the standard treatment with paclitaxel and carboplatin. L-BLP25 may help to slow or stop the cancer cells from growing by helping the body to boost the immune system that is used to fight disease. Bevacizumab works by slowing or stopping the growth of blood vessels into tumors. Tumors need blood vessels in order to grow.
