Active Comparator: B
Standard of Care chemotherapy
Drug: Cisplatin
Cisplatin 75 mg/m2 intravenously on day 1 of each 21 day cycle x 6 cycles
Other Name: Platinol-AQ
Drug: Gemcitabine + Cisplatin
Gemcitabine 1250 mg/m2 intravenously on days 1 and 8 of each 21 cycle x 6 cycles

Detailed Description:
PF-3512676 dosing was stopped 20 June 2007 in response to DSMC recommendation to close the trial, citing lack of efficacy concerns as the primary reason with a safety issue (thrombocytopenia) also contributing to the decision. Subjects were allowed to complete standard of care treatment/survival follow-up. Data collection was completed on 25 June 2008.
