ECOG performance status scores on a scale of 0-5, higher is worse

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
  2. = Ambulatory and capable of all self-care but unable to carry out any work activities. Up and about > 50% of waking hours
  3. = Capable of only limited self-care, confined to bed/chair more than 50% of waking hours
  4. = Completely disabled. Cannot carry on any self-care. Totally confined to bed/chair
  5. = Dead

  Outcome Measures

1.  Primary:   Objective Response Rate   [ Time Frame: Up to 25 weeks ]

2.  Secondary:   Progression-free Survival   [ Time Frame: Up to 2 years ]

  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
Trial was designed with a maximum target accrual of 37 patients. Per protocol, the trial was stopped after the first stage based on an interim analysis of the response rate among the first 23 patients.
