Primary Outcomes

Progression Free Survival (PFS)
time frame: Radiologic scans performed at weeks 9 and 18 (+/-1 week) and every 12 weeks thereafter relative to the date of randomisation until the primary analysis (approximately 20 months)

Secondary Outcomes

time frame: Following disease progression, patients will be contacted every 12 weeks to assess survival status until the final analysis (approximately 50 months)
Percentage Change in Tumour Size
time frame: Week 9 (+/- 1 week)
