Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Objective Response Rate (ORR) Per Blinded Independent Central Review (BICR) [ Time Frame: From date of randomization to disease progression (Up to 37 months) ]
    ORR is defined as the percentage of participants with a confirmed best overall response of complete response (CR) or partial response (PR) using RECIST v 1.1 per blinded independent central review (BICR) assessment. CR=Disappearance of all target lesions. Any pathological lymph nodes must have reduction in short axis to < 10 mm. PR=At least a 30% decrease in the sum of diameters of target lesions.

  2. Progression-free Survival (PFS) Per Blinded Independent Central Review (BICR) [ Time Frame: From date of randomization to disease progression, or death, whichever comes first (Up to 37 months) ]
    PFS is defined as the time between the date of randomization and the first date of documented tumor progression using RECIST v 1.1 per blinded independent central review (BICR), or death due to any cause, whichever comes first. Progressive disease (PD)=At least a 20% increase in the sum of diameters of target lesions. The sum must also demonstrate an absolute increase of at least 5 mm.

  3. Overall Survival (OS) [ Time Frame: From date of randomization to date of death (Up to 37 months) ]
    OS is defined as the time between the date of randomization and the date of death due to any cause. Participants who do not have a date of death will be censored on the last date for which a participant was known to be alive.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Clinical Benefit Rate (CBR) Per Blinded Independent Central Review (BICR) [ Time Frame: From date of randomization to disease progression (Up to 37 months) ]
    CBR, or equivalently the disease control rate (DCR) is defined as the percentage of participants with a best overall response of complete response (CR), partial response (PR), or stable disease (SD) as assessed by blinded independent central review (BICR) using RECIST v 1.1. CR=Disappearance of all target lesions. Any pathological lymph nodes must have reduction in short axis to < 10 mm. PR=At least a 30% decrease in the sum of diameters of target lesions.SD=Neither sufficient shrinkage to qualify for PR nor sufficient increase to qualify for progressive disease.

  2. Duration of Response (DoR) Per Blinded Independent Central Review (BICR) [ Time Frame: From date of randomization to disease progression, or death, whichever is earlier (Up to 37 months) ]
    DOR is defined for participants who have a confirmed complete response (CR) or partial results (PR) as the date from first documented CR or PR using RECIST v 1.1 to the date of the documentation of disease progression per blinded independent central review (BICR) assessment or death due to any cause, whichever is earlier. CR=Disappearance of all target lesions. Any pathological lymph nodes must have reduction in short axis to < 10 mm. PR=At least a 30% decrease in the sum of diameters of target lesions.

  3. Time to Objective Response (TTR) Per Blinded Independent Central Review (BICR) [ Time Frame: From date of randomization to disease progression (Up to 37 months) ]
    Time to response (TTR) is defined for participants who had a confirmed complete response (CR) or partial response (PR) as the time from the date of randomization to date of first documented CR or PR per blinded independent central review (BICR) assessment using RECIST v 1.1. CR=Disappearance of all target lesions. Any pathological lymph nodes must have reduction in short axis to < 10 mm. PR=At least a 30% decrease in the sum of diameters of target lesions.

  4. Objective Response Rate (ORR) Per Investigator [ Time Frame: From date of randomization to disease progression (Up to 37 months) ]
    ORR is defined as the percentage of participants with a confirmed best overall response of complete response (CR) or partial response (PR) using RECIST v 1.1 per investigator assessment. CR=Disappearance of all target lesions. Any pathological lymph nodes must have reduction in short axis to < 10 mm. PR=At least a 30% decrease in the sum of diameters of target lesions.

  5. Progression-free Survival (PFS) Per Investigator [ Time Frame: From date of randomization to disease progression, or death, whichever comes first (Up to 37 months) ]
    PFS is defined as the time between the date of randomization and the first date of documented tumor progression using RECIST v 1.1 per investigator, or death due to any cause, whichever comes first. Progressive disease (PD)=At least a 20% increase in the sum of diameters of target lesions. The sum must also demonstrate an absolute increase of at least 5 mm.

  6. Clinical Benefit Rate (CBR) Per Investigator [ Time Frame: From date of randomization to disease progression (Up to 37 months) ]
    CBR, or equivalently the disease control rate (DCR) is defined as the percentage of participants with a best overall response of complete response (CR), partial response (PR), or stable disease (SD) as assessed by investigator using RECIST v 1.1. CR=Disappearance of all target lesions. Any pathological lymph nodes must have reduction in short axis to < 10 mm. PR=At least a 30% decrease in the sum of diameters of target lesions. SD=Neither sufficient shrinkage to qualify for PR nor sufficient increase to qualify for PD.

  7. Duration of Response (DoR) Per Investigator [ Time Frame: From date of randomization to disease progression, or death, whichever is earlier (Up to 37 months) ]
    DOR is defined for participants who have a confirmed complete response (CR) or partial results (PR) as the date from first documented CR or PR using RECIST v 1.1 to the date of the documentation of disease progression per investigator assessment or death due to any cause, whichever is earlier. CR=Disappearance of all target lesions. Any pathological lymph nodes must have reduction in short axis to < 10 mm. PR=At least a 30% decrease in the sum of diameters of target lesions.

  8. Time to Objective Response (TTR) Per Investigator [ Time Frame: From date of randomization to disease progression (Up to 37 months) ]

    Number of participants with any grade adverse events (AEs) including treatment-related AEs, AEs leading to discontinuation of any drug, serious adverse events (SAEs), treatment-related SAEs, and deaths from first dose to 30 days post last dose. An AE is defined as any new untoward medical occurrence or worsening of a preexisting medical condition in a clinical investigation participant administered study treatment and that does not necessarily have a causal relationship with this treatment.

  13. Number of Participants With On-Treatment Laboratory Parameters That Worsened Relative to Baseline [ Time Frame: From first dose to 100 days post last dose (Average of 10 months and a maximum up to 37 months) ]

    Grade 1=Mild event Grade 2=Moderate event Grade 3=Severe event Grade 4=Life threatening event
