Quality of Life Surveys
- Participants' Response [ Time Frame: Response to treatment measured using Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumors (RECIST) criteria with radiological evaluation at 6 weeks and reevaluated every 6 weeks. ]Complete Response (CR): Disappearance of all target lesions; Partial Response (PR): At least 30% decrease in sum of longest diameter (LD) of target lesions, reference baseline sum LD; Progressive Disease (PD): At least 20% increase in sum of LD of target lesions, reference smallest sum LD recorded since treatment started or appearance of 1 or more new lesions; Stable Disease (SD): Neither sufficient shrinkage to qualify for PR nor increase to qualify for PD, reference smallest sum LD since treatment started.
