Additional Study Information: The purpose of this study is to determine the effectiveness of combining immune therapy with standard chemotherapy. People who usually have this are treated with 3 cycles of standard chemotherapy, followed by surgery, and then another 3 cycles of chemotherapy. In this study, all study subjects will receive the standard of care chemotherapy for 3 cycles prior to and 3 cycles following surgery, combined with immune therapy with an additional cycle of immune therapy (4 total) in the pre-operative period. The chemotherapy administered in this study is not the identical regimen that showed benefit in earlier clinical trials. Rather it will be the standard combination that your doctor determines is the most appropriate regimen for you whether or not you participate in this clinical trial.
