No Intervention: No Nadroparin
Patients will receive all standard anticancer treatment. Patients in this arm will not receive nadroparin
Patients will be randomized to receive standard anticancer treatment. Nadroparin patients will be treated with therapeutic doses of subcutaneous (s.c). nadroparin for 2 weeks followed by half therapeutic doses for 4 weeks. After 4 weeks of wash-out, subsequent 2-week periods of therapeutic doses of nadroparin will be given for a total of 6 cycles each separated by a 4-week wash-out. The study treatment period ends at week 46 regardless of number of cycles achieved at that moment.
