Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Overall Survival (defined as the time from the date of randomization until the date of death or the last known date the subject was alive) [ Time Frame: Approximately 48 months post study start ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Until 705 Death Events have occurred, Interim analysis at 528 events

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Overall Survival (OS) in subjects who receive one dose of blinded therapy [ Time Frame: Approximately 42 months post study start ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Progression Free Survival [determined as the time between the date of randomization and the date of progression per modified World Health Organization (mWHO) criteria] [ Time Frame: Approximately 42 months post study start ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Best Overall Response Rate (determined by the number of subjects who are complete or partial responders divided by the total number of subjects in the data set) [ Time Frame: Approximately 42 months post study start ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Estimated Enrollment: 920
