assessments as defined by the IWLRC 1999)

|• The primary analyses for response will be performed on the ITT and
MITT populations after all patients' complete 6 cycles or progress before completing 6 cycles.
• Duration of response will be analyzed at the time of the primary
analysis of response, but the primary analysis of duration of response
will be performed on the ITT and MITT populations after all patients
enrolled in the study have completed at least one year or have dropped
out before completing one year.
|E.5.2||Secondary end point(s)||
|• Complete response (CR)/Complete Response unconfirmed (Cru) and
Duration of response
• Progression–free survival (PFS)
• Time to tumor progression (TTP)
• Time to treatment failure (TTF)
• Overall survival (OS)
|E.5.2.1||Timepoint(s) of evaluation of this end point||
|Secondary endpoints will be analyzed at the time of the primary analysis of response. However, final analyses for PFS, TTP, TTF and OS will be performed after 100% of the patients have died are lost to follow up or have withdrawn consent or a maximum of 4 years from last patient enrolled, which ever comes first.
Follow-up for second primary malignancies and OS will continue until 100% of the patients have died, are lost to follow up, have withdrawn consent, or a maximum of 5 years from the last patient enrolled, whichever comes first.
