Recruitment Details
Key information relevant to the recruitment process for the overall study, such as dates of the recruitment period and locations
This study was activated on March 21, 2005, and terminated on January 12, 2009 with the final accrual of 175 patients.22 ECOG institutions participated in the study.

Pre-Assignment Details
Significant events and approaches for the overall study following participant enrollment, but prior to group assignment
This study involved a pre-registration before randomization. For patients with locally-typed HLA status, randomization immediately followed pre-registration. For central evaluation of HLA status, samples were submitted after pre-registration, and results of the evaluation must have been received from the central laboratory prior to randomization
