Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Arm 1 Drug: Lenvatinib (E7080)
A 24 mg oral daily dose, each day of a 28 day treatment cycle
Other Name: E7080, HOPE
Placebo Comparator: Arm 2 Drug: Lenvatinib (E7080)
A 24 mg oral daily dose, each day of a 28 day treatment cycle
Other Name: E7080, HOPE

Detailed Description:

This double-blind, placebo-controlled, multicenter, randomized Phase II study will consist of a 2-arm design, comparing E7080 + BSC (Arm 1) with placebo + BSC (Arm 2). Approximately 135 patients will be randomized 2:1 to receive either E7080 or placebo in a blinded manner.

Patients may continue to receive study treatment until progression, unacceptable toxicity, withdrawal of consent, or withdrawal by Investigator.

All patients will receive BSC. Patients will be randomized in a 2:1 ratio to receive either E7080 or placebo. Patients will be stratified according to Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group (ECOG) Performance Status (PS; 0 to 1 versus 2).

Patients will receive study treatment (E7080 or placebo) administered once daily, continuously, plus best supportive care until disease progression, unacceptable toxicity, withdrawal of consent, or withdrawal by Investigator.
