    Percentage of patients whose BOR is assessed as CR, PR, or Stable Disease (SD)

  2. Duration of Response [ Time Frame: From first confirmed CR or PR to confirmed PD, average of 6 months ]

    Time from C1D1 until the date of objective PD (as assessed by RECIST v1.1) or the date of death (by any cause in the absence of disease progression)

  4. Overall Survival [ Time Frame: From C1D1 to death from any cause, average of 9 months ]
    Time from C1D1 until the date of death by any cause. Patients who are still alive at the time of the analysis, or who have become lost to follow-up or withdrawn consent will be censored at their last date known to be alive

  5. Safety Profile of CTX-009 [ Time Frame: From C1D1 to 60 days after the last dose of study treatment, average of 7 months ]
    Incidence of Treatment Emergent Adverse Events (TEAEs) and changes in clinical abnormalities for all randomized patients who received at least one dose of study treatment

  6. Quality of Life Changes [ Time Frame: From screening to treatment discontinuation for any reason, average of 6 months ]
    Assessed approximately every 2 months from patient reported data using European Organization for Research and Treatment of Cancer (EORTC) Quality of Life questionnaire (QLQ)-C30 as compared to baseline responses

  7. Exposure Response by Pharmacokinetic (PK) Sampling [ Time Frame: From C1D1 to treatment discontinuation for any reason, average of 6 months ]
    Serum concentrations of CTX-009 at specified timepoints
