    In All Randomized subjects

  2. Progression-free Survival (PFS) [ Time Frame: Approximately 33 months from time first patient is randomized ]
    As assessed by BICR in All Randomized subjects

  3. Objective Response Rate (ORR) [ Time Frame: Approximately 33 months from time first patient is randomized ]
