Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Progression-free Survival [ Time Frame: From first drug administration until 28 days after last drug administration + Follow-Up period for collecting information on disease progression or death, up to 2465 days. ]
    Progression-free survival (PFS) defined as the time from date of randomisation to date of disease progression, or date of death if a patient died earlier. Participants with no event (Disease progression (PD) or death) were censored. PD was primarily evaluated for the primary analysis by an independent central imaging review according to Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumours (RECIST) version 1.1. Per RECIST version 1.1. for target lesions and assessed by Computed Tomography (CT)-scan or Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI): PD, At least a 20% increase in the sum of the longest diameter (SoD) of target lesions taking as reference the smallest SoD of target lesions recorded since the treatment started, together with an absolute increase in the SoD of target lesions of at least 5 millimetre (mm) or the appearance of one or more new lesions. For the final analysis (analysis cut-off date 12 April 2019) status and date of PD were determined by investigator assessment.

  2. Time to Treatment Failure (TTF) (Main Overall Survival Analysis Cut-off Date, 08 April 2016) [ Time Frame: From first drug administration until last drug administration, up to 1482 days ]
    Time to Treatment Failure (TTF) which was the time from the date of randomisation to the date of i.e. permanent treatment discontinuation for any reason.

  3. Overall Survival [ Time Frame: From first drug administration until 28 days after last drug administration + Follow-Up period for collecting information on death, up to 2465 days. ]
    Overall survival (OS) which was defined as the time from the date of randomisation to the date of death. Participants for whom there is no evidence of death at the time of the analysis will be censored at the date that they were last known to be alive.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Objective Response Rate [ Time Frame: From first drug administration until 28 days after last drug administration + Follow-Up period for collecting information on disease progression, further anti-cancer treatment and death, up to 2465 days. ]
    Objective response rate (ORR) which was defined as the number of participants with best overall response of complete response (CR) or partial response (PR) as assessed by central independent review according to Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumours (RECIST) version 1.1. divided by the total number of participants who received treatment. Per RECIST version 1.1. for target lesions and assessed by Computed Tomography (CT)-scan or Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI): Complete Response (CR), Disappearance of all target lesions; Partial Response (PR), >=30% decrease in the sum of the longest diameter of target lesions from baseline. For the final analysis (analysis cut-off date 12 April 2019) objective response was determined by investigator assessment.

  2. Time to Objective Response [ Time Frame: From first drug administration until 28 days after last drug administration + Follow-Up period for collecting information on disease progression, further anti-cancer treatment and death, up to 2465 days. ]
    Number of participants with objective response (best overall response of complete response or partial response) to study treatment over time, cumulative number of participants is displayed. Time to objective response was defined as the time from randomisation to the first recorded objective response. For the final analysis (analysis cut-off date 12 April 2019) objective response was determined by investigator assessment.

  3. Duration of Objective Response [ Time Frame: From first drug administration until 28 days after last drug administration + Follow-Up period for collecting information on disease progression, further anti-cancer treatment and death, up to 2465 days. ]
    Duration of objective response defined as the time of first objective response (best overall response of complete response or partial response) to the time of progression or death, whichever occurred first (or date of censoring for progression free survival). For the final analysis (analysis cut-off date 12 April 2019) objective response was determined by investigator assessment.

  4. Disease Control [ Time Frame: From first drug administration until 28 days after last drug administration + Follow-Up period for collecting information on disease progression or death, up to 2465 days. ]
    Percentage of participants with disease control which was defined as the number of participants with best overall response of complete response (CR) or partial response (PR) or stable disease (SD) as assessed by central independent review according to Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumours (RECIST) version 1.1. divided by the total number of participants who received treatment. Per RECIST version 1.1. for target lesions and assessed by Computed Tomography (CT)-scan or Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI): Complete Response (CR), Disappearance of all target lesions; Partial Response (PR), >=30% decrease in the sum of the longest diameter of target lesions from baseline; Stable Disease (SD), Neither sufficient shrinkage to qualify for PR nor sufficient increase to qualify for PD. Responses of SD were only considered if they occur ≥42 days from date of randomisation. For the final analysis (analysis cut-off date 12 April 2019) disease control was determined by investigator assessment.

  5. Duration of Disease Control [ Time Frame: From first drug administration until 28 days after last drug administration + Follow-Up period for collecting information on disease progression or death, up to 2465 days. ]
    Duration of disease control defined as the time from randomisation to the time of progression or death, whichever occurred first (or date of censoring for progression free survival). For the final analysis (analysis cut-off date 12 April 2019) the status and date of disease progression were determined by investigator assessment.

  6. Tumour Shrinkage (Main Overall Survival Analysis Cut-off Date, 08 April 2016) [ Time Frame: From first drug administration until last drug administration, up to 1482 days ]
    Tumour shrinkage assessed by minimum sum of post-baseline target lesion diameters recorded after randomisation. A positive value shows a decrease in tumour size.

  7. Health-related Quality of Life (Primary Analysis Cut-off Date, 21 August 2015) [ Time Frame: Every 8 weeks, up to 56 weeks ]

    Health-related quality of life (HRQoL) measured using European Quality of life - 5 Dimensions (EQ-5D) score for United Kingdom (UK) and Belgium and European European Quality Visual Analogue Scale (EQ-VAS).

    EQ-5D utility scores range from 0 (worst health) to 1 (full health).

    EQ-VAS scores range from 0 (worst imaginable health state) to 100 (best imaginable health state).

    Results display the mean score up to 56 weeks.
