Time Frame:6 years
Safety Issue:
Description:OS is defined as the interval between the date of inclusion and the date of death from any cause. A patient alive will be censored at the last date of follow-up
Measure:Objective response rate (ORR)
Time Frame:3 years
Safety Issue:
Description:The ORR defined as the percent of patients with a complete response (CR) or a partial response (PR).
Measure:Duration of response (DoR).
