Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Percentage of Participants With Objective Response (OR) [ Time Frame: Tumour assessments were performed at screening, week 6, week 12, and every 8 weeks thereafter ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    OR is defined as the percentage of patients with complete response (CR) or partial response (PR) and was assessed according to the Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumours version 1.0 (RECIST 1.0).


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Percentage of Participants With Clinical Benefit (CB) [ Time Frame: Tumour assessments were performed at screening, week 6, week 12, and every 8 weeks till database lock ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    CB was defined as CR, PR or stable disease (SD) and was assessed according to RECIST 1.0 criteria.

  • Time to Objective Response (OR) [ Time Frame: Tumour assessments were performed at screening, week 6, week 12, and every 8 weeks till database lock ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    The time to OR was the duration from the first treatment to the time when the measurement criteria for CR and/or PR were met according to RECIST 1.0 criteria.

  • Duration of OR [ Time Frame: Tumour assessments were performed at screening, week 6, week 12, and every 8 weeks till database lock. ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Duration of OR was measured from the time the criteria for CR or PR (whichever was documented first) were first met until the first date that progressive disease or death was objectively documented.

  • Progression-free Survival (PFS) [ Time Frame: Tumour assessments were performed at screening, week 6, week 12, and every 8 weeks till database lock. ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    PFS was defined as the time from the start of treatment to the occurrence of disease progression or death, whichever came first. Disease progression was assessed according to RECIST 1.0 criteria as well as by the investigators assessment, progression date recorded from post trial follow up or start of new anticancer treatment.

  • Patients With AEs Resulting in Dose Reduction or Treatment Discontinuation [ Time Frame: First administration of trial medication until 28 days after last administration of trial medication ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Patients with adverse events (AEs) resulting in dose reduction or treatment discontinuation

  • Maximum CTCAE Grade [ Time Frame: First administration of trial medication until 28 days after last administration of trial medication ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Patients with AEs by maximum Common Terminology Criteria for Adverse Events (CTCAE) grade

  • Pre-dose Concentration of Afatinib in Plasma at Steady State on Day 15 (Cpre,ss,15) for Patients on 50mg on Day 15 [ Time Frame: Day 15 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Cpre,ss,15 represents the pre-dose concentration of afatinib in plasma at steady state on day 15 for patients on 50mg on day 15.

  • Number of Patients With Diarrhea or Rash [ Time Frame: First administration of trial medication until 28 days after last administration of trial medication ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Number of Patients with Diarrhea or Rash
