Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Number of Participants With Adverse Events (AEs), Serious AEs (SAEs), Deaths, and Discontinuations Due to AEs [ Time Frame: Assessed at baseline, every 2 weeks during cycles 1-6 (6-week cycles), and every 6 weeks after cycle 6. Median number of cycles = 1.0 (range: 1.0 - 7.0). ]
    SAE=any untoward medical event that results in death, persistent or significant disability/incapacity, or drug dependency or abuse; is life-threatening, an important medical event, or a congenital anomaly/birth defect; or requires inpatient hospitalization or prolongation. AE=any new untoward medical occurrence or worsening of a preexisting medical condition that does not necessarily have a causal relationship with this treatment. Treatment-related(Tx-R)=certainly, probably, possibly related and unknown relationship to study drug. AE grades(Gr) 1=Mild; 2=Moderate; 3=Severe; 4=Life-threatening.

  • Number of Participants With Dose-limiting Toxicities (DLTs) [ Time Frame: The duration for observation of DLT was 2 6-week cycles in participants with escalated dose (QD to BID) and 1 6 -week cycle for participants starting with BID regime. For participants receiving dasatinib at 150 mg, DLTs were only documented over cycle 1. ]
    Grades (gr) according to National Cancer Institute's Common Terminology Criteria for Adverse Events (NCI CTCAE), version 3.0. DLTs were defined as adverse drug reactions as follows: absolute neutrophil counts <0.5x10^9/L (gr4) lasting for 7 consecutive days; febrile neutropenia (neutrophil count <1x10^9/L and fever of >=38.5°C); thrombocytopenia (gr4); any gr3/4 nonhematological toxicity except nausea, vomiting and fever which could be rapidly controlled with appropriate measures; any toxicity which did not allow administering at least 70% of the intended dose intensity for both agents.

  • Deaths Within 30 Days of Protocol Treatment Discontinuation [ Time Frame: From time of randomization through within 30 days after protocol treatment discontinuation. Median (full range) number of 6-week treatment cycles was 1.0 (1.0-7.0). ]
  • Number of Participants With Worst Grade of Hematological Toxicity Per NCI CTCAE Version 3.0 Criteria [ Time Frame: Assessed at baseline, every 2 weeks during cycles 1-6 (6-week cycles), and every 6 weeks after cycle 6. Median number of cycles = 1.0 (range: 1.0 - 7.0). ]
    Neutrophils (neutropenia): Grade (gr)1 <LLN-1500/mm3; Gr2 <1500-1000/mm3; Gr3 <1000-500/mm3; Gr4 <500/mm3. Leukocytes (leukopenia): Gr1 <LLN-3000/mm3; Gr2 <3000-2000/mm3; Gr3 <2000-1000/mm3; Gr4 <1000/mm3. Lymphocytes (lymphocytopenia): Gr1 <LLN-800/mm3; Gr2 <800-500/mm3; Gr3 <500-200/mm3; Gr4 <200/mm3. Platelets (thrombocytopenia): Gr1 <LLN-75,000/mm3; Gr2 <75,000-50,000/mm3; Gr3 <50,000-25,000/mm3; Gr4 <25,000/mm3. Hemoglobin (anemia): Gr1 <LLN-10.0 g/dL; Gr2 <10.0-8.0 g/dL; Gr3 <8.0-6.5 g/dL; Gr4 <6.5 g/dL. LLN/ULN=lower/upper limit of normal (normal ranges may vary by local laboratories).

  • Number of Participants With Worst Grade of Biochemistry Abnormality Per NCI CTCAE Version 3.0 Criteria [ Time Frame: Assessed at baseline, every 2 weeks during cycles 1-6 (6-week cycles), and every 6 weeks after 6 cycles. Median number of cycles = 1.0 (range: 1.0 - 7.0). ]
    Grades (gr) 1=mild; gr2=moderate; gr3=severe; gr4=life-threatening. For details of NCI CTCAE laboratory values for each grade, please refer to Low Potassium=Hypokalemia, High Potassium=Hyperkalemia, Low Sodium=Hyponatremia, Low Calcium=Hypocalcemia, High Bilirubin=Hyperbilirubinemia, low phosphatase=Hypophosphatemia, Low Potassium=Hypokalemia.

Other Outcome Measures:
  • Number of Participants With Disease Progression at 12 Months [ Time Frame: 12 months ]
    As measured by brain magnetic resonance imaging.
