Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Phase 1 - Maximum Tolerated Dose (MTD) of Carboplatin [ Time Frame: Phase 1 enrollment to the end of study treatment up to Week 11 ]
    MTD was defined as a dose at which the occurrence of at least 2 dose-limiting toxicities (DLTs) was observed. DLT was defined as any of the following events occurring during the entire radiation therapy (RT) course, including a 2-week recovery period following completion of RT: Grade 4 neutropenia (<0.5 x 10^9 cells per liter) lasting >7 days, febrile neutropenia; ≥Grade 3 neutropenia with fever >38.5 degrees Celsius (°C), Grade 4 thrombocytopenia, Grade 3 thrombocytopenia with ≥Grade 2 bleeding, ≥Grade 3 nonhematologic toxicity (excluding nausea, vomiting, and transaminase elevations) and ≥Grade 3 pulmonary or esophageal toxicity (radiation-related pneumonitis or esophagitis).

  • Phase 1 - Maximum Tolerated Dose (MTD) of Cisplatin [ Time Frame: Phase 1 enrollment to the end of study treatment up to Week 11 ]
    MTD was defined as a dose at which the occurrence of at least 2 dose-limiting toxicities (DLTs) was observed. DLT was defined as any of the following events occurring during the entire radiation therapy (RT) course, including a 2-week recovery period following completion of RT: Grade 4 neutropenia (<0.5 x 10^9 cells per liter) lasting >7 days, febrile neutropenia; ≥Grade 3 neutropenia with fever >38.5 degrees Celsius (°C), Grade 4 thrombocytopenia, Grade 3 thrombocytopenia with ≥Grade 2 bleeding, ≥Grade 3 nonhematologic toxicity (excluding nausea, vomiting, and transaminase elevations) and ≥Grade 3 pulmonary or esophageal toxicity (radiation-related pneumonitis or esophagitis).

  • Phase 2 - Survival Probability at 2 Years [ Time Frame: Phase 2 randomization up to 2 years ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Phase 1 - Pharmacology Toxicity: Number of Participants With Dose Limiting Toxicities (DLTs) [ Time Frame: Phase 1 enrollment up to Week 11 ]
    Phase 1 pharmacology toxicity was defined as the number of participants experiencing dose limiting toxicities (DLTs). DLT was defined as any of the following events occurring during the entire radiation therapy (RT) course: Grade 4 neutropenia (<0.5 x 10^9 cells per liter) >7 days, febrile neutropenia, ≥Grade 3 neutropenia with fever >38.5 degrees Celsius (°C), Grade 4 thrombocytopenia, Grade 3 thrombocytopenia with ≥Grade 2 bleeding, ≥Grade 3 nonhematologic toxicity (excluding nausea, vomiting, and transaminase elevations), and ≥Grade 3 pulmonary or esophageal toxicity (radiation-related pneumonitis or esophagitis). Grade 5 events are the events leading to the death.

  • Phase 1 - Percentage of Participants With Complete Response or Partial Response (Response Rate) [ Time Frame: Phase 1 enrollment to the end of the study treatment up to Week 11 ]
    Response rate is the percentage of participants with complete response (CR) or partial response (PR), as assessed according to the Response Evaluation Criteria In Solid Tumors (RECIST) guidelines. CR is disappearance of all target and non-target lesions; PR is ≥30% decrease in sum of longest diameter of target lesions. Response rate is calculated as a total number of participants with CR or PR divided by the total number of participants treated multiplied by 100.

  • Phase 2 - Pharmacology Toxicity: Number of Participants With Adverse Events [ Time Frame: Phase 2 randomization to the end of the study treatment up to 30.0 months ]
    Phase 2 pharmacology toxicity was defined as the number of participants who experienced serious adverse events or all other nonserious adverse events during the study. A summary of serious adverse events and other nonserious adverse events is located in the Reported Adverse Events section.

  • Phase 2 - Time to Progression [ Time Frame: Phase 2 randomization to measured disease progression up to 24 months ]
    Time to disease progression was measured from randomization of Study Phase 2 to the first observation of disease progression according to the Response Evaluation Criteria In Solid Tumors (RECIST) criteria. Disease progression is ≥20% increase in sum of longest diameter of target lesions and/or a new lesion.

  • Phase 2 - Median Survival [ Time Frame: Phase 2 randomization to death as the result of any cause up to 30.0 month ]
  • Phase 2 - Percentage of Participants With Complete Response or Partial Response (Response Rate) [ Time Frame: Phase 2 randomization to the end of the treatment up to 30.0 months ]
    Response rate is the percentage of participants with complete response (CR) or partial response (PR), as assessed according to the Response Evaluation Criteria In Solid Tumors (RECIST) guidelines. CR is disappearance of all target and non-target lesions; PR is ≥30% decrease in sum of longest diameter of target lesions. Response rate is calculated as a total number of participants with CR or PR divided by the total number of participants treated multiplied by 100.
