Overall Survival (OS) [ Time Frame: When 454 OS events were observed ]
OS was defined as the time from the date of randomization to the date of death from any cause. The comparison of OS between the 2 arms was done using a stratified log-rank test at one-sided 2.5% level of significance.

Current Secondary Outcome Measures  ICMJE
 (submitted: October 23, 2014)
  • Time to Tumor Progression (TTP) [ Time Frame: Until all patients have disease progression or leave study due to intolerable adverse events- Estimate of 1 year for each patient ]
    TTP was defined as the time from the date of randomization to the date of the first documented radiologic confirmation of disease progression. Since the study did not meet the primary objective, TTP was not formally tested.
  • Percentage of Participants With Disease Control Rate (DCR) [ Time Frame: Until all patients have disease progression or leave study due to intolerable adverse events- Estimate of 1 year for each patient ]
    DCR is defined as the proportion of participants with a best objective response (BOR) of complete response (CR) or partial response (PR) or stable disease (SD) according to RECIST. The BOR was the best response recorded from the start of the treatment until disease progression. CR is disappearance of all target lesions; PR is at least a 30% decrease in the sum of the longest diameter of all target lesions, taking as reference the baseline sum of the longest diameters; SD is neither sufficient shrinkage to qualify for PR or CR nor an increase in lesions which would qualify for PD. PD is at least a 20% increase in the sum of the longest diameter of all measured target lesions, taking as reference the smallest sum of longest diameter of all target lesions recorded at or after baseline.
  • Time to Definitive Deterioration of ECOG Performance Score (PS) Score [ Time Frame: Until all patients have disease progression or leave study due to intolerable adverse events- Estimate of 1 year for each patient. ]
    Change in Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group (ECOG) were assessed by time to definitive performance status deterioration by at least one category on the ECOG scale. Deterioration was considered definitive if no improvement in the ECOG PS was observed at a subsequent measurement. ECOG PS: 0=Fully active, able to carry on all pre-disease performance without restriction, 1=Restricted in physically strenuous activity but ambulatory and able to carry out work of a light or sedentary nature, e.g., light house work, office work; 2=Ambulatory and capable of all selfcare but unable to carry out any work activities. Up and about more than 50% of waking hours; 3=Capable of only limited selfcare, confined to bed or chair more than 50% of waking hours; 4=Completely disabled. Cannot carry on any selfcare. Totally confined to bed or chair; 5=Dead
  • Time to Definitive Deterioration of EORTC QLQ-C30 Scores [ Time Frame: Until all patients have disease progression or leave study due to intolerable adverse events - Estimate of 1 year for each patient. ]
    The primary quality of life endpoint was the time to definitive 5% deterioration from baseline in the global health status/quality of life scale of the EORTC QLQ-C30 questionnaire. Definitive deterioration by at least 5% is defined as a decrease in score by at least 5% compared to baseline, with no later observed increase above this threshold. The EORTC quality of life questionnaire (QLQ) is an integrated system for assessing the healthrelated quality of life (QoL) of cancer patients participating in international clinical trials. All of the scales and single-item measures range in score from 0 to 100. A high scale score represents a higher response level. Thus a high score for a functional scale represents a high / healthy level of functioning, a high score for the global health status / QoL represents a high QoL, but a high score for a symptom scale / item represents a high level of symptomatology / problems.
  • Pharmacokinetics Assessments - Cmin [ Time Frame: Until all patients have disease progression or leave study due to intolerable adverse events - Estimate of 1 year for each patient. ]
    Cmin is the pre-dose blood concentration at steady-state (ng/mL). Pre-dose (Cmin) blood samples were collected from all patients in both arms at Visit 3. Steady-state for the Cmin sample was defined as continuous administration of the same dose in the last 4 days prior to the collection of the Cmin sample. Steady-state for the 5 mg every other day regimen was defined as the state when the 5 mg dose was taken 2 days and 4 days before sampling. PK samples were only drawn at visit 3, and only analyzed for patients receiving everolimus at steady state (if patients had received the dose the previous 4 days). In addition summary statistics were only done for each everolimus dose when 3 samples were available. Only valid pre-dose (Cmin) everolimus samples were included in the analysis.
  • Pharmacokinetics Assessments - Cmax [ Time Frame: Until all patients have disease progression or leave study due to intolerable adverse events- Estimate of 1 year for each patient. ]
    Cmax is the maximum (peak) blood drug concentration after dose administration (ng/mL) calculated as the maximum of C1h and C2h. C1h was 1 hour post-dose blood concentration (ng/mL) and C2h was 2 hour post-dose blood concentration (ng/mL). C1h and C2h post-dose samples were collected from all patients in both arms at Visit 3. Steady-state for the C1h and C2h samples was defined as continuous administration of the same dose in the previous 4 days and the day on which the C1h and C2h samples were collected. Steady-state for the 5 mg every other day regimen was defined as the state when the 5 mg dose was taken 2 days and 4 days before sampling. PK samples were only drawn at visit 3, and only analyzed for patients receiving everolimus at steady state (if patients had received the dose the previous 4 days). In addition summary statistics were only done for each everolimus dose when 3 samples were available. Only valid C1h and C2h everolimus samples were included in the analysis.

Intervention  ICMJE
  • Drug: Everolimus
    Everolimus (labeled as RAD001) was formulated as tablets of 2.5 mg strength and blisterpacked in units of 10 tablets.
    Other Name: RAD001
  • Drug: Everolimus Placebo
    Everolimus Placebo matched to the everolimus 2.5 mg tablet strength was blister-packed in units of 10 tablets.

  • Other: Best Supportive Care (BSC)
    BSC was defined as drug or non-drug therapies, nutritional support, physical therapy or anything that the Investigator believed to be in the patient's best interest, but excluding other antineoplastic treatments. BSC administered to the patient throughout the study was to be reported on the Concomitant Medication/Significant Non-Drug Therapy electronic case report from (eCRF). Permitted BSC treatments during the study included, but were not limited to, the following: Pain medication to allow the patient to be as comfortable as possible, Bisphosphonates for bone metastases, Localized radiotherapy, for the treatment of pre-existing, painful bone metastases, Nutritional support or appetite stimulants (i.e. megestrol) as recommended by the Investigator, Oxygen therapy and blood products or transfusions
