  • Outcome Measures

    Primary Outcome Measures

    1. Objective Response Rate [Up to 3 years]

      Objective response is defined as a complete response (CR) or partial response (PR) according to RECIST v.1.1. recorded from randomization until disease progression or death due to any cause

    Secondary Outcome Measures

    1. Progress-free survival [Up to 3 years]

      Time from randomization to the first documentation of objective tumor progression or to death due to any cause

    2. Disease Control Rate [Up to 3 years]

      Disease control is defined as complete response (CR), partial response (PR), or stable disease (SD) ≥24 weeks according to the RECIST version 1.1 recorded in the time period between randomization and disease progression or death to any cause.

    3. Overall Survival [Up to 3 years]

      Time from randomization to date of death due to any cause. according to the RECIST version 1.1 recorded in the time period between randomization and disease progression or death to any cause.
