  Outcome Measures
  Show All Outcome Measures

1.  Primary:   Overall Survival (OS)   [ Time Frame: Baseline until death or at least 1 year after the randomization of last participant ]

2.  Secondary:   Progression Free Survival (PFS)   [ Time Frame: Baseline until disease progression or at least 1 year after the randomization of last participant ]
  Hide Outcome Measure 2

Measure Type Secondary
Measure Title Progression Free Survival (PFS)
Measure Description Time in weeks from randomization to the first documentation of objective tumor progression or death due to any cause. PFS was calculated as = (first event date minus randomization date plus 1) divided by 7. Tumor progression was determined from oncologic assessment data (where data meet the criteria for progressive disease [PD]), or from adverse event (AE) data (where the outcome was "Death").
Time Frame Baseline until disease progression or at least 1 year after the randomization of last participant  
Safety Issue No  

Population Description
Explanation of how the number of participants for analysis was determined. Includes whether analysis was per protocol, intention to treat, or another method. Also provides relevant details such as imputation technique, as appropriate.
ITT population included all participants who were randomized, with study drug assignment designated according to initial randomization, regardless of whether participants received study drug, or received a different drug from that to which they were randomized.

[1] Additional details about the analysis, such as null hypothesis and power calculation:
  Differences in PFS between treatment arms was analyzed by 1-sided log rank test, stratified for extent of disease (locally advanced cancer versus metastatic cancer).

[3] Additional information, such as whether or not the p-value is adjusted for multiple comparisons and the a priori threshold for statistical significance:
  One-sided log-rank test at alpha = 0.025 significance level was used.The p-value was not adjusted for multiple testing.
