Minimum one prior chemotherapy regimen was received, and prior treatment with Votrient was allowed to all patients in the Phase 1b study. In the Phase 1b study, on an average, patients had received two prior therapies which ranged from one to seven. All patients were treated with the combination of TRC105 given once weekly (8 or 10 mg/kg) and Votrient at its approved dose of 800 mg per day.
