Primary Outcome Measures:
  • To compare the efficacy of AZD6244 vs temozolomide in patients with unresectable AJCC stage 3 or 4 malignant melanoma by assessing progression free survival (PFS) [ Time Frame: From date of randomisation until 6 months after first dose or study withdrawal (whichever is the earliest) ]
  • Time to death [ Time Frame: From date of randomisation until 6 months after first dose or to date of death (whichever is the earliest) ]
  • Objective Response Rate [ Time Frame: RECIST data collected as per institutional standard practise ]
  • Duration of response [ Time Frame: RECIST data collected as per institutional standard practise ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Assessment of the safety and tolerability of AZD6244 [ Time Frame: Assessed at all visits ]
  • Investigation of the pharmacokinetics of AZD6244 [ Time Frame: Day 1 & 8 (for patients on AZD6244) ]
  • Assessment of the efficacy of AZD6244 versus temozolomide in patients who are BRAF and BRAF and /or NRAS mutation positive [ Time Frame: From date of randomisation until 6 months after first dose or study withdrawal (whichever is the earliest) ]
