Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Progression Free Survival (PFS) Time [ Time Frame: Baseline to measured PD or death from any cause. Tumor assessments were performed every 8 weeks during therapy and every 2 months during post-therapy until documented PD (up to 34 months). ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    PFS was measured from date of first dose to first date of progressive disease (PD) or death from any cause. For each participant who was not known to have died or to have had PD as of the data inclusion cut-off date for a particular analysis, PFS duration was censored for that analysis at the date of the participant's last progression-free tumor assessment before that cut-off date.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Overall Tumor Response Rate (ORR) [ Time Frame: Baseline to measured PD. Tumor assessments were performed every 8 weeks (q 8 weeks) during therapy and q 2 months during post-therapy until documented PD (up to 34 months). ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Response defined per Response Evaluation Criteria In Solid Tumors (RECIST) criteria: complete response (CR)=disappearance of all target lesions; partial response (PR)=30% decrease in sum of longest diameter of target lesions; progressive disease (PD)=20% increase in sum of longest diameter of target lesions; stable disease=small changes that do not meet above criteria. ORR=proportion of participants who achieved a confirmed best response of CR or PR (responders). ORR=number of participants with CR or PR /number of participants qualified for tumor response analysis (per protocol population).

  • Number of Participants With Adverse Events (AEs); Pharmacology Toxicities [ Time Frame: Baseline, every cycle (every 14 days) up to 34 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    A listing of serious adverse events (SAEs) and other non-serious AEs is located in the Reported Adverse Event module.

  • 1-Year Overall Survival (OS) Rate [ Time Frame: Baseline to death from any cause, 1 year ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    OS was measured from the date of first dose to the date of death from any cause. For each participant who was not known to have died as of the data inclusion cut-off date for a particular analysis, OS duration was censored for that analysis at the date of participant's last study contact prior to that cut-off date. The 1-year survival rate (percentage of participants who were alive at 1 year) was estimated from OS data.

Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Gemcitabine + Bevacizumab

Gemcitabine 2500 milligrams per square meter (mg/m^2) intravenous (IV) over 30 minutes given on Day 1 every 14 days (q 14 days) until disease progression (PD) or unacceptable toxicity.

Bevacizumab 10 milligrams per kilogram (mg/kg) initially over 90 minutes given on Day 1 q 14 days until PD or unacceptable toxicity.

Drug: Gemcitabine
Gemcitabine 2500 mg/m^2 IV over 30 minutes given on Day 1 q 14 days prior to bevacizumab until PD or unacceptable toxicity.
Other Names:
  • Gemzar
  • LLY188011
Drug: Bevacizumab

Bevacizumab 10 mg/kg IV over 90 minutes at Cycle 1; infusion time may have been decreased for subsequent cycles. (For example, if the first infusion was tolerated without an infusion-associated adverse event [AE], the second infusion was delivered over 60 minutes. If the 60-minute infusion was well tolerated, all subsequent infusions were delivered over 30 minutes.)

Bevacizumab 10 mg/kg initially over 90 minutes given on Day 1 q 14 days until PD or unacceptable toxicity.
