Primary Outcome Measures

Measure:Composite endpoint : Objective response rate / Progression-free survival
Time Frame:6 months
Safety Issue:
Description:The primary endpoint is composed of: the objective response rate (CR or PR) according to RECIST criteria (V1.1) on the basis of measurable lesions defined at baseline, the progression-free survival (PFS) rate at 6 months , PFS is defined as the absence of disease progression or death

Secondary Outcome Measures

Measure:Progression-free survival (PFS)
Time Frame:2 years max
Safety Issue:
Description:Progression-free survival (PFS) will be calculated from the date of the first dose of treatment to the date of progression or death (whichever comes first), or last date with no progression
Measure:The Overall Survival (OS)
Time Frame:2 years max
Safety Issue:
Description:The Overall Survival (OS) will be calculated from the date of the first dose of treatment to the date of death (whatever the cause) or the date of last follow-up
Measure:The toxicity will be evaluated according to the NCI-CTC scale version 4.0
Time Frame:2 years max
