Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: 1 Drug: TAS-106
6.5 mg/m2, IV on day 1 of each 21 day cycle. Number of cycles: until progression or unacceptable toxicity develops.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Progression Free Survival(PFS) [ Time Frame: From the date of registration until the earliest date of documented disease progression, death, or censoring event. ]
    PFS was calculated as days from the date of registration until the earliest date of documented disease progression, death, or censoring event.

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Antitumor Activity [ Time Frame: Obtain a contrast-enhanced CT scan of the chest, abdomen and pelvis (if clinically indicated) within 28 days prior to study entry and repeat at the end of every 2 courses thereafter. ]
    Antitumor activity was evaluated by measuring the rate of objective response using the Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumors (RECIST) guidelines. Per RECIST Criteria (V1.0) and assessed by CT: Complete Response (CR), Disappearance of all target lesions; Partial Response (PR), >=30% decrease in the sum of the longest diameter of target lesions; Overall Response (OR)= CR + PR.", or similar text that was as accurate and appropriate.

  2. Overall Survival [ Time Frame: 12 months after enrollment of the last patient ]
    Patient survival for both subgroups was followed up every 2 months until 28 Feb 2011.

  3. Safety [ Time Frame: Monitor patients for untoward medical events from the time of signed informed consent form, including toxicities from previous treatment and any ongoing or newly reported AEs or SAEs during the 30 days after the last dose of study medication. ]
    Toxicities were evaluated at each course of therapy using the CTCAE ver. 3.0 or a non-CTC grading scale for toxicities that were not covered by the NCI CTC.
