Number of Participants With Disease Control.
Disease control is defined as having a complete response (CR), a partial response (PR) or stable disease (SD) according to the modified RECIST criteria for assessment of response in malignant pleural mesothelioma. CR is defined as the disappearance of all target lesions with no evidence of tumour elsewhere and PR is defined as at least a 30% reduction in the total tumour measurement. A confirmed response requires a repeat observation on two occasions 4 weeks apart. PD is defined as an increase of at least 20% in the total tumour measurement over the nadir measurement, or the appearance of one or more new lesions. Patients with SD are those who fulfill the criteria for neither PR nor PD.
Assessed at 2 months.
