Primary Outcome Measures:
  • To compare the overall survival of brivanib versus sorafenib in subjects with advanced HCC who have not received prior systemic treatment [ Time Frame: Survival will be assessed continuously ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • To compare the time to progression (TTP) (investigator assessed using modified RECIST criteria for HCC [ Time Frame: Every 6 weeks ]
  • To compare the investigator assessed objective response rate (ORR) and disease control rate (DCR) using modified RECIST criteria for HCC [ Time Frame: Every 6 weeks ]
  • To determine duration of response, duration of disease control, and time to response (TTR) [ Time Frame: Every 6 weeks ]
  • To assess the safety profile of brivanib and sorafenib [ Time Frame: Every 6 weeks ]
  • To explore PK and exposure-response in the study population [ Time Frame: Every 6 weeks ]
  • To compare time to symptomatic progression [ Time Frame: Every 6 weeks ]
  • To compare health-related quality of life [ Time Frame: Every 6 weeks ]
