Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Treatment failure rate (progressive disease, treatment withdrawal due to unacceptable toxicities, or any death) [ Time Frame: 12 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    From the date of randomization to the date of progressive disease, treatment withdrawal, or death from any cause, which came first.

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Overall response rate [ Time Frame: 6 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    RECIST v.1.1 will be used to assess tumor responses

  • quality of life [ Time Frame: 12 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    EORTC QLQ C30 and EQ5D will be used to assess the quality of life

  • Progression free survival [ Time Frame: 12 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Overall survival [ Time Frame: 36 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Adverse events [ Time Frame: about 12 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    CTC AE v.3.0
