Further study details as provided by Hoffmann-La Roche:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Disease-Free Survival (Time to Event) [ Time Frame: Up to 3 years ]
    Disease free survival was measured as the time from the date of randomization until the date of first event (recurrence of colon cancer, or death due to any cause).

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Safety: Percentage of Participants With Adverse Events [ Time Frame: Up to 3 years ]
    An adverse event is any untoward medical occurrence in a participant administered a pharmaceutical product and which does not necessarily have to have a causal relationship with the treatment. An adverse event can therefore be any unfavorable and unintended sign (including an abnormal laboratory finding, for example), symptom, or disease temporally associated with the use of a pharmaceutical product, whether or not considered related to the pharmaceutical product. Preexisting conditions which worsen during a study are also considered as adverse events.
