Recruitment Details
Key information relevant to the recruitment process for the overall study, such as dates of the recruitment period and locations
Enrollment began (medical clinic) in December 2003. Study was unblinded on 27 January 2005 (end of Double-blind treatment). Subjects experiencing disease progression could crossover to Open-label treatment. Open-label data collection ended May 2008.

Pre-Assignment Details
Significant events and approaches for the overall study following participant enrollment, but prior to group assignment

361 subjects randomized to double-blind treatment in 2:1 ratio (sunitinib vs. Placebo).

255 subjects continued on or crossed over to Open-label treatment.


Reporting Groups
  Description
Sunitinib Double-Blind Treatment Starting dose: 50 mg orally once daily as a single agent for 4 consecutive weeks followed by a 2-week off-treatment period to form a complete cycle of 6 weeks. (Schedule 4/2). Subjects received best supportive care in addition to the study treatment.
Placebo Double-Blind Treatment Starting daily dose of 1 capsule, size- and color-matched to the sunitinib 50-mg capsule for 4 consecutive weeks followed by a 2-week off-treatment period to form a complete cycle of 6 weeks (Schedule 4/2). Subjects received best supportive care in addition to the study treatment. Subjects were provided the opportunity to receive open-label sunitinib at the time of confirmed disease progression or study unblinding.
Sunitinib Open-Label Treatment Subjects experiencing disease progression could have their treatment assignment unblinded, and subjects who had been receiving placebo could crossover to open-label treatment with sunitinib; subjects who had been receiving sunitinib during double-blind treatment of the study could continue to do so after unblinding if, in the opinion of the investigator, there was sufficient evidence of clinical benefit.
