Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Objective Response Rate Within the First 56 Weeks After the First Dose of Vandetanib [ Time Frame: Sept 2012 to May 2014 ]
    ORR is defined as the percentage of patients who have a confirmed CR (Disappearance of all target lesions) or PR (>=30% decrease in the sum of diameters of target lesions) prior to any evidence of progression as defined by RECIST V1.1. This percentage is calculated with only patients who had at least measurable lesion in the efficacy analysis set.

Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Vandetanib 300mg
300 mg/day vandetanib
