Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Progression Free Survival (PFS): Intent-to-Treat (ITT) Population [ Time Frame: From randomization until PD, last tumor assessment without PD before new antitumor treatment initiation or death due to any cause, whichever occurred first (up to 3 years) ]
    PFS was defined as the time in months from randomization to the first documentation of progression of disease (PD) or death on study due to any cause, whichever occurred first. PD according to response evaluation criteria in solid tumors version 1.1 (RECIST 1.1) was defined as greater than or equal to (>=) 20 percent (%) increase in the sum of diameters of the target lesions taking as a reference the smallest sum recorded since the start of treatment or unequivocal progression in non-target lesions or the appearance of 1 or more new lesions. The analysis of PFS was based on investigator assessment of disease progression. Participants who were not known to have had a PFS event at the analysis date were censored at last tumor assessment date prior to data cutoff or date of new treatment initiation, whichever occurred first.

  2. Progression Free Survival (PFS): Diagnostic Positive (DX+) Population [ Time Frame: From randomization until PD, last tumor assessment without PD before new antitumor treatment initiation or death due to any cause, whichever occurred first (up to 3 years) ]
    PFS was defined as the time in months from randomization to the first documentation of PD or death on study due to any cause, whichever occurred first. PD according to RECIST 1.1, was defined as >= 20% increase in the sum of diameters of the target lesions taking as a reference the smallest sum recorded since the start of treatment or unequivocal progression in non-target lesions or the appearance of 1 or more new lesions. The analysis of PFS was based on investigator assessment of disease progression. Participants who were not known to have had a PFS event at the analysis date were censored at last tumor assessment date prior to data cutoff or date of new treatment initiation, whichever occurred first.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Clinical Benefit Rate-24 (CBR-24) [ Time Frame: From randomization up to 3 years ]
    CBR-24: Percentage of participants with a best response of complete response (CR), partial response (PR), or stable disease (SD) sustained for atleast 24 weeks, as determined by investigator using RECIST 1.1. CR: Disappearance of all (target and non-target) lesions and normalization of tumor marker level for non-target lesions. All lymph nodes (target and non-target) must be non-pathological in size (less than [<] 10 millimeter [mm] short axis). PR: >=30% decrease in sum of diameters of target lesions, using baseline sum diameters as reference. SD: Neither sufficient reduction to qualify as PR nor sufficient increase to qualify as PD, using the smallest sum diameters during study as reference. PD: >=20% increase (an absolute increase of >=5 mm) in sum of diameters of target lesions, using the smallest sum during the study as a reference (including baseline sum), or unequivocal progression of existing non-target lesions, or appearance of atleast 1 new target or non-target lesions.

  2. Best Objective Response Rate [ Time Frame: From randomization until CR or PR, whichever occurred first (up to 3 years) ]
    Best objective response rate: Percentage of participants with measurable disease and with a best response of CR or PR according to RECIST 1.1. CR: Disappearance of all (target and non-target) lesions and normalization of tumor marker level for non-target lesions. All lymph nodes (target and non-target) must be non-pathological in size (<10 mm short axis). PR: Atleast 30% decrease in sum of diameters of target lesions, using baseline sum diameters as reference. Response evaluation was based on investigators' judgment.

  3. Duration of Objective Response [ Time Frame: From first documentation of CR or PR until PD, or last tumor assessment without PD before new antitumor treatment initiation or death due to any cause, whichever occurred first (up to 3 years) ]
    Duration of objective response: Time from first documentation of CR or PR, to the first documentation of PD or death due to any cause, whichever occurred first as determined by investigator using RECIST 1.1. CR: Disappearance of all (target and non-target) lesions and normalization of tumor marker level for non-target lesions. All lymph nodes (target and non-target) must be non-pathological in size (<10 mm short axis). PR: >=30% decrease in sum of diameters of target lesions, using baseline sum diameters as reference. PD: >=20% increase (an absolute increase of >=5 mm) in sum of diameters of target lesions, using the smallest sum during the study as a reference (including baseline sum), or unequivocal progression of existing non-target lesions, or appearance of atleast 1 new target or non-target lesions. Participants with no PD or death (after initial CR or PR) at the analysis date were censored at last tumor assessment date prior to date of new antitumor treatment or data cutoff.

CR: Disappearance of all (target and non-target) lesions and normalization of tumor marker level for non-target lesions. All lymph nodes (target and non-target) must be non-pathological in size (<10 mm short axis). PR: >=30% decrease in sum of diameters of target lesions, using baseline sum diameters as reference. PD: >=20% increase (an absolute increase of >=5 mm) in sum of diameters of target lesions, using the smallest sum during the study as a reference (including baseline sum), or unequivocal progression of existing non-target lesions, or appearance of atleast 1 new target or non-target lesions. Participants who were not known to have had a CR or PR were censored at last tumor assessment date prior to data cutoff or date of new treatment initiation, whichever occurred first.

  5. Time to Progression [ Time Frame: From randomization until PD or last tumor assessment without PD before new antitumor treatment initiation, whichever occurred first (up to 3 years) ]
    Time to progression was defined as the time from the date of randomization to PD defined by the investigator using RECIST 1.1. PD: >=20% increase (an absolute increase of >=5 mm) in sum of diameters of target lesions, using the smallest sum during the study as a reference (including baseline sum), or unequivocal progression of existing non-target lesions, or appearance of atleast 1 new target or non-target lesions. Participants who did not experience disease progression, time to progression was right censored at the date of the last tumor assessment prior to data cutoff or date of new antitumor treatment, whichever occurred first.

  6. Progression Free Survival (PFS) at 6 Months [ Time Frame: Month 6 ]
    PFS at 6 months was defined as the percentage of participants with no event of disease progression at Month 6 landmark, estimated by Kaplan-Meier methods. PFS was defined as the time in months from randomization to the first documentation of PD or death on study due to any cause, whichever occurred first. PD: >=20% increase (an absolute increase of >=5 mm) in sum of diameters of target lesions, using the smallest sum during the study as a reference (including baseline sum), or unequivocal progression of existing non-target lesions, or appearance of atleast 1 new target or non-target lesions. The analysis of PFS was based on investigator assessment of disease progression.
