The lesion accessible for biopsy may not be the only target lesion and should not be located in a previously irradiated field (unless this index lesion has PD ≥20% after radiation). The requirement(s) for the screening and/or on-treatment biopsy and/or archival tissue may be waived by the sponsor for individual sites and subjects, in particular if tumour locations are not safely accessible, after discussion and documented agreement between the site and the sponsor´s medical monitor.

Note: Subjects who received DTX monotherapy in a prior line of therapy are not eligible.

  • Subjects who received adjuvant or neoadjuvant chemotherapy and had recurrence within 6 months of completion of the adjuvant or neoadjuvant chemotherapy are allowed to count the adjuvant or neoadjuvant therapy as the first line of chemotherapy for the recurrent/metastatic disease.
