progression-free for at least 6 months, treated with cabozantinib + nivolumab + ipilimumab in
the second-line and beyond setting (per iRECIST).
- To evaluate time to progression (Time Frame: From the date the patient received the
first study treatment dose until the date of first documented progression, assessed up
to 2 years). Progression Free Survival (PFS) according to iRECIST.

the exception of those who had prior hysterectomy). However, women who have been
amenorrheic for 12 or more months are still considered to be of childbearing potential
if the amenorrhea is possibly due to prior chemotherapy, antiestrogens, low body
weight, ovarian suppression or other reasons.
