  2. aBased on data cutoff date of March 11, 2011.
  3. bOne patient in arm I and two patients in arm III had no measureable disease at baseline.
  4. cPatients who did not have evaluable baseline scan or no post-randomization scan or those who had stable disease for <8 weeks.
  5. dCalculated based on a normal distribution.
  6. eOne-sided Cochran-Mantel-Haenszel test stratified by Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group performance status and gender.
