Reporting Groups
  Description
Pemetrexed Alone Participants received pemetrexed 50 milligrams per square meter (mg/m^2) intravenous (IV) infusion every 3 weeks until disease progression (PD) or the occurrence of unacceptable toxicity.
Pemetrexed Plus Matuzumab 800 mg Per Week Participants received pemetrexed 50 mg/m^2 IV infusion every 3 weeks in combination with matuzumab 800 mg IV infusion once every week. An observation period of at least 1 hour was specified between the end of the matuzumab infusion and the start of pemetrexed administration when these treatments were given on the same day. Treatment was continued until PD or the occurrence of unacceptable toxicity.
Pemetrexed Plus Matuzumab 1600 mg Every 3 Weeks Participants received pemetrexed 50 mg/m^2 IV infusion every 3 weeks in combination with matuzumab 1600 mg IV infusion every 3 weeks. An observation period of at least 1 hour was specified between the end of the matuzumab infusion and the start of pemetrexed administration when these treatments were given on the same day. Treatment was continued until PD or the occurrence of unacceptable toxicity.

  Baseline Characteristics

Population Description
Explanation of how the number of participants for analysis was determined. Includes whether analysis was per protocol, intention to treat, or another method. Also provides relevant details such as imputation technique, as appropriate.
Intent to treat (ITT) population included all randomized participants who received at least one infusion of study treatment.

  Outcome Measures

1.  Primary:   Number of Participants With Objective Response Assessed by Independent Review Committee   [ Time Frame: Baseline up to PD or death due to any cause (up to approximately 2 years) ]

2.  Secondary:   Overall Survival (OS)   [ Time Frame: Baseline up to PD or death due to any cause (up to approximately 3.5 years) ]

3.  Secondary:   Progression-Free Survival (PFS)   [ Time Frame: Baseline up to PD or death due to any cause (up to approximately 3.5 years) ]

4.  Secondary:   Duration of Objective Response Assessed by Independent Review Committee   [ Time Frame: From first documented objective response to PD or death due to any cause (up to approximately 3.5 years) ]

5.  Secondary:   Change From Baseline to Cycle 2 in Global Quality of Life (QoL), as Assessed Using Lung Cancer Symptom Scale (LCSS)   [ Time Frame: Baseline, Cycle 2 (Cycle length = 3 weeks) ]


  Serious Adverse Events


  Other Adverse Events


  Limitations and Caveats

Limitations of the study, such as early termination leading to small numbers of participants analyzed and technical problems with measurement leading to unreliable or uninterpretable data
For serious adverse events (SAEs), due diligence was done and all potential information sources have been exhausted, no further information could be retrieved apart from what is currently reported.
