Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Number of Participants With Treatment-Emergent Adverse Events (All Causalities) [ Time Frame: Baseline up to 28 days after last dose of study treatment, an average of 14 months ]
    An adverse event (AE) was any untoward medical occurrence in a clinical investigation participant administered a product; the event did not need to have a causal relationship with the treatment. All AEs reported after initiation of study drug treatment were considered as treatment emergent adverse events (TEAEs). AE severity was graded according to Common Terminology Criteria for AEs (CTCAE) version 4.03. Grade 1 AEs are mild AEs; Grade 2 AEs are moderate AEs; Grade 3 AEs are severe AEs, Grade 4 AEs are life-threatening consequences and Grade 5 AEs are deaths related to AEs. Each AE was counted once for the participant in the most severe severity. A serious adverse event (SAE) was an AE resulting in any of the following outcomes or deemed significant for any other reason: death; initial or prolonged inpatient hospitalization; life-threatening experience (immediate risk of dying); persistent or significant disability/incapacity; congenital anomaly.

  2. Number of Participants With Treatment-Emergent Adverse Events by Severity (All Causalities) [ Time Frame: Baseline up to 28 days after last dose of study treatment, an average of 14 months ]
    An adverse event (AE) was any untoward medical occurrence in a clinical investigation participant administered a product; the event did not need to have a causal relationship with the treatment. All AEs reported after initiation of study drug treatment were considered as TEAE. AE severity was graded according to Common Terminology Criteria for AEs (CTCAE) version 4.03. Grade 1 AEs are mild AEs; Grade 2 AEs are moderate AEs; Grade 3 AEs are severe AEs, Grade 4 AEs are life-threatening consequences and Grade 5 AEs are deaths related to AEs. Each AE was counted once for the participant in the most severe severity.

  3. Number of Participants With Treatment-Emergent Adverse Events (Palbociclib-Related) [ Time Frame: Baseline up to 28 days after last dose of study treatment, an average of 14 months ]
    An adverse event (AE) was any untoward medical occurrence in a clinical investigation participant administered a product; the event did not need to have a causal relationship with the treatment. All AEs reported after initiation of study drug treatment were considered as TEAE. AE severity was graded according to Common Terminology Criteria for AEs (CTCAE) version 4.03. Grade 1 AEs are mild AEs; Grade 2 AEs are moderate AEs; Grade 3 AEs are severe AEs, Grade 4 AEs are life-threatening consequences and Grade 5 AEs are deaths related to AEs. Each AE was counted once for the participant in the most severe severity. An SAE was an AE resulting in any of the following outcomes or deemed significant for any other reason: death; initial or prolonged inpatient hospitalization; life-threatening experience (immediate risk of dying); persistent or significant disability/incapacity; congenital anomaly. Palbociclib-related TEAEs were determined by the investigator.

  4. Number of Participants With Treatment-Emergent Adverse Events by Severity (Palbociclib-Related) [ Time Frame: Baseline up to 28 days after last dose of study treatment, an average of 14 months ]
    An adverse event (AE) was any untoward medical occurrence in a clinical investigation participant administered a product; the event did not need to have a causal relationship with the treatment. All AEs reported after initiation of study drug treatment were considered as TEAE. AE severity was graded according to Common Terminology Criteria for AEs (CTCAE) version 4.03. Grade 1 AEs are mild AEs; Grade 2 AEs are moderate AEs; Grade 3 AEs are severe AEs, Grade 4 AEs are life-threatening consequences and Grade 5 AEs are deaths related to AEs. Each AE was counted once for the participant in the most severe severity. Palbociclib-related TEAEs were determined by the investigator.

  5. Number of Participants With Serious Adverse Events (All Causalities and Palbociclib-Related) [ Time Frame: Baseline up to 28 days after last dose of study treatment, an average of 14 months ]
    An SAE was any untoward medical occurrence at any dose that resulted in death; was life threatening; required inpatient hospitalization or prolongation of existing hospitalization; resulted in persistent or significant disability/incapacity; resulted in congenital anomaly/birth defect. Palbociclib-related SAEs were determined by the investigator.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Percentage of Participants With Complete Response and Partial Response [ Time Frame: Baseline and per routine clinical practice to time of last dose of study treatment, an average of 1 year ]
    Tumor response assessments were evaluated as per local guidelines by investigators and were collected in the CRF. No response confirmation was applied.

  2. The Objective Response Rate (ORR) [ Time Frame: Baseline and per routine clinical practice to time of last dose of study treatment, an average of 1 year ]
    The tumor response was based on the response reported by investigator per local practice. No response confirmation was applied. ORR was defined as the percentage of participants with complete response or partial response relative to all as-treated population.

  3. EQ-5D Health Utility Index Score [ Time Frame: The descriptive analysis was carried out on Day 1 of each cycle (cycle 1 to cycle 38), at end of treatment (EOT) and end of study (EOS), up to 3 years. Cycle 1 Day 1 is taken to be baseline. ]
    The EuroQol-5D (EQ-5D) (version 3L) consisted of 2 parts. The first part was a 5 item questionnaire designed to assess health status in terms of a single index value or utility score. It consisted of 5 descriptors of current health state (mobility, self-care, usual activities, pain/discomfort, and anxiety/depression). A respondent was asked to rate each state on a three level scale (1=no problem, 2=some problem, and 3=extreme problem) with higher levels indicating greater severity/impairment. The answers given to the 5 descriptors permit to find 243 unique health states which can be converted into a single EQ-5D index value by published algorithms. For the EQ-5D index, published weights are available that allow for the creation of a summary score ranging from -0.594 to 1, with low scores representing a higher level of dysfunction and 1 as perfect health.

  4. Change From Baseline in EQ-5D Health Utility Index Score [ Time Frame: The descriptive analysis was carried out on Day 1 of each cycle (cycle 1 to cycle 38), at end of treatment (EOT) and end of study (EOS), up to 3 years. Cycle 1 Day 1 is taken to be baseline. ]

  5. EQ-VAS Score [ Time Frame: The descriptive analysis was carried out on Day 1 of each cycle (cycle 1 to cycle 38), at end of treatment (EOT) and end of study (EOS), up to 3 years. Cycle 1 Day 1 is taken to be baseline. ]
    The EuroQol-5D (EQ-5D) (version 3L) consisted of 2 parts. The second part consisted of a visual analogue scale (the EuroQol-visual analogue scale [EQ-VAS]). The respondent's self-rated health was assessed on a scale from 0 (worst imaginable health state) to 100 (best imaginable health state)

  6. Change From Baseline in EQ-VAS Score [ Time Frame: The descriptive analysis was carried out on Day 1 of each cycle (cycle 1 to cycle 38), at end of treatment (EOT) and end of study (EOS), up to 3 years. Cycle 1 Day 1 is taken to be baseline. ]
