[1] The standardized uptake value (SUV) was calculated for each FDG-PET scan. The average of the maximum SUV (SUVmax) across all lesions (aveSUVmax) on the baseline scan was used to classify patients into low- and high-uptake. Low uptake group was defined as avgSUVmax <=4, and high uptake group was defined as avgSUVmax > 4.

  Outcome Measures

1.  Primary:   Relative Tumor Size Change Following 8 Weeks of Therapy.   [ Time Frame: 8 weeks ]

2.  Secondary:   Percent Change in FDG-PETUptake Following 2 Weeks of Therapy   [ Time Frame: 2 weeks ]

  Serious 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
