Arm Intervention/treatment
Active Comparator: Group 1
One arm will receive standard of care treatment (ie, GEM 1000 mg/m2 by intravenous [IV] infusion weekly for 3 weeks of a 4-week cycle) plus dasatinib 100 mg by mouth once daily (QD).
Drug: dasatinib
GEM 1000 mg/m2 by intravenous [IV] infusion weekly for 3 weeks of a 4-week cycle plus dasatinib 100 mg (or matched placebo) by mouth once daily (QD). Subjects will continue to receive study treatment until disease progression, unacceptable toxicity, withdrawal of consent, or study termination.
Other Name: BMS-354825

Placebo Comparator: Group 2
The other arm will receive standard of care treatment (ie, GEM 1000 mg/m2 by intravenous [IV] infusion weekly for 3 weeks of a 4-week cycle) plus matched placebo by mouth once daily (QD).
Drug: Placebo
Matching Placebo

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Overall Survival [ Time Frame: From randomization until date of death from any cause by 02 December 2013 ]
    Overall survival (OS) is the time from randomization until time of death from any cause by 02 December 2013.

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Progression Free Survival (PFS) [ Time Frame: Time from randomization to earliest PFS event by 02 December 2013 ]
    PFS - time from randomization to unequivocal local or distant disease progression, death or discontinuation from trial for any reason by 02 December 2013. Progression events were determined according to Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumor (RECIST) 1.1 every 8 weeks.
