Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Progression Free Survival [ Time Frame: Patients were followed for progression up to 2 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Median time (in months) from randomisation until clinical progression of disease using the Kaplan-Meier method.

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Overall Survival [ Time Frame: Patients were followed for survival up to 2 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Median time (in months) from randomisation until death using the Kaplan-Meier method.

  • Tumour Response Rate [ Time Frame: While receiving paclitaxel + carboplatin study visits were aliged with its administration ie every 3 weeks, then every 6 weeks (up to 2 years) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Objective response rate defined as participants with a complete or partial response according to RECIST
