Change From Baseline in Standardised Uptake Value (SUVmax) as Measured by 2-[F-18]-Fluoro-2-deoxy-D-glucose Positron Emission Tomography (FDG-PET) [ Time Frame: Randomisation until Day 22 ]
Percentage Change from baseline in Standardised Uptake Value (SUVmax) at Day 22, as Measured by 2-[F-18]-fluoro-2-deoxy-D-glucose positron emission tomography (FDG-PET) Response ((Day 22 SUVmax value - baseline SUVmax value)/baseline SUVmax value)*100
Secondary Outcome Measures
Change From Baseline in Mean Arterial Blood Pressure (MAP) [ Time Frame: Randomisation until Day 22 ]
Change from baseline in mean arterial blood pressure (MAP) (MAP value at Day 22 - MAP value at baseline).
