- Overall Survival for the Intent to Treat Population [ Time Frame: up to 2 years ]To compare the overall survival duration of the two treatment arms. Overall survival is measured from the time of randomization until reported death. Subjects were censored at last time known alive if lost to follow-up. Alive patients were censored at the last survival follow-up. Follow-up was monthly after off study treatment.
- To Evaluate and Compare the Tolerability and Toxicity of the Two Treatment Arms [ Time Frame: up to 2 years ]
- Objective Response Rates of the Two Treatment Arms [ Time Frame: one year ]Objective response is measured by tumor reduction as defined in the RECIST criteria. Tumor shrinkage must be at least 30% to qualify as an objective response.
- Progression Free Survival [ Time Frame: one year ]To compare the median progression free survival (PFS) of the two treatment arms. Progression free survival is measured from randomization until the subject has documented disease progression by an objective measure. Subjects were censored if no documented progression had occurred at the one year time point. Subjects must be alive with no more than 20% increase in tumor size to qualify for progression free survival. Changes in tumor size are defined by RECIST criteria.
- One Year Survival [ Time Frame: one year ]To evaluate the 1-year survival rates of the two treatment arms.
- To Evaluate the Changes in Blood Levels of CA19.9 on the Two Treatment Arms and Whether There is a Relationship to Objective Response, and PFS [ Time Frame: one year ]
- To Evaluate the OS, ORR, PFS, 1-year Survival, and Changes in CA19.9 of Subjects on the Two Treatment Arms That Completed > 1 Cycle (28 Days) of Protocol Treatment [ Time Frame: one year ]
