Further study details as provided by Hoffmann-La Roche:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Percentage of Participants with Objective Response (Complete Response [CR]/Partial Response [PR]) Based on Computer Tomography (CT) or Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) According to Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumors (RECIST) Version (v) 1.1 [ Time Frame: Baseline up to 5 years (assessed at Baseline, every 8 weeks until disease progression or death or end of treatment period [up to 5 years]) ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Progression Free Survival (PFS) Based on CT or MRI According to RECIST v 1.1 [ Time Frame: Baseline up to 5 years (assessed at Baseline, every 8 weeks until disease progression or death or end of treatment period [up to 5 years]) ]
  • Overall Survival [ Time Frame: Baseline up to 5 years ]
  • Percentage of Participants with Adverse Events [ Time Frame: Baseline up to 5 years ]
  • Percentage of Participants with Epidermal Growth Factor Receptor (EGFR) Mutation in Study Population [ Time Frame: Screening (21 days prior to Day 1) ]
  • Median Time Taken for the First Response Based on RECIST v 1.1 as Determined by the Investigator [ Time Frame: Baseline up to 5 years (assessed at Baseline, every 8 weeks until disease progression or death or end of treatment period [up to 5 years]) ]
