Further study details as provided by Bristol-Myers Squibb:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Endpoint of Overall Survival (OS) in all randomized subjects [ Time Frame: Approximately up to 44.1 months ]
    OS is defined as the time between the date of randomization and the date of death due to any cause. OS will be censored on the last date a subject was known to be alive. OS data will be collected continuously while subjects are on study medication and every 3 months via in-person or phone contact after discontinuation of study medication

  • Progress Free Survival (PFS) [ Time Frame: Baseline (Day 1), Week 12, every 6 weeks thereafter up to week 49, and then every 12 weeks until disease progression is documented (Approximately around 5 years) ]
    PFS is defined as the time between the date of randomization and the first date of documented progression, as determined by the investigator, or death due to any cause, whichever occurs first

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Objective Response Rate (ORR) [ Time Frame: Baseline (Day 1), Week 12 every 6 weeks thereafter up to week 49, and then every 12 weeks until disease progression is documented (expected to be no more than 5 years) ]
    ORR is defined as the number of subjects with a Best Overall Response (BOR) of Complete Response (CR) or Partial Response (PR) divided by the number of randomized subjects for each treatment group. The BOR is defined as the best response designation, as determined by the investigator, recorded between the date of randomization and the date of objectively documented progression per Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumors (RECIST) 1.1 or the date of subsequent anti-cancer therapy, whichever occurs first

  • Differences in OS, PFS, and ORR between the two experimental arms [ Time Frame: OS: Approximately up to 44.1 months; PFS and OOR: Baseline (Day 1), Week 12, every 6 weeks thereafter up to week 49, and then every 12 weeks until disease progression is documented (Approximately around 5 years) ]
  • OS based on PD-L1 expression [ Time Frame: Baseline (Day 1) ]
  • Mean changes from baseline in EORTC-QLQ-C30 [ Time Frame: Day 1 of Week 1, Day 1 of Week 5 and Follow up visits 1 and 2 ]
    European Organisation for Research and Treatment of Care Quality of Life Questionnaire (EORTC QLQ) C-30 global health status/QoL composite scale data and the remaining EORTC QLQ C-30 scale data will be summarized by timepoint using descriptive statistics for each treatment group

Estimated Enrollment: 915
Study Start Date: May 2013
Estimated Study Completion Date: March 2019
Primary Completion Date: August 2016 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
