7. Objective Response Rate (ORR) per Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumors version 1.1 (RECIST 1.1) as assessed by Blinded Independent Central Review (BICR) (Time Frame - Up to approximately 28 months):
ORR is defined as the percentage of participants who achieve a confirmed Complete Response (CR: disappearance of all target lesions) or a Partial Response (PR: at least a 30% decrease in the sum of diameters [SOD] of target lesions) per RECIST 1.1 adjusted for this study to allow a maximum of 10 target lesions in total and 5 per organ, and assessed by BICR.

Secondary outcome:

1. Duration of Response (DOR) per RECIST 1.1 as assessed by BICR (Time Frame - Up to approximately 28 months):
For participants who demonstrate confirmed CR or PR per RECIST 1.1 assessed by BICR, DOR is defined as the time from the first documented evidence of CR (disappearance of all target lesions) or PR (at least a 30% decrease in the SOD of target lesions) until progressive disease (PD) or death due to any cause, whichever occurs first. Per RECIST 1.1 adjusted for this study to allow a maximum of 10 target lesions and a maximum of 5 target lesions per organ, PD is defined as at least a 20% increase in the SOD of target lesions. In addition to the relative increase of 20%, the sum must also demonstrate an absolute increase of at least 5 mm. The appearance of one or more new lesions is also considered PD.

2. Disease Control Rate (DCR) per RECIST 1.1 as assessed by BICR (Time Frame - Up to approximately 28 months):
DCR is defined as the percentage of participants who have achieved CR (disappearance of all target lesions), PR (at least a 30% decrease in the SOD of target lesions), or stable disease (SD: neither sufficient shrinkage to qualify for PR nor sufficient increase to qualify for PD) after ≥6 weeks (the start of the window for the first scheduled scan) per RECIST 1.1 assessed by BICR. Per RECIST 1.1 adjusted for this study to allow a maximum of 10 target lesions and a maximum of 5 target lesions per organ, PD is defined as at least a 20% increase in the SOD of target lesions. In addition to the relative increase of 20%, the sum must also demonstrate an absolute increase of at least 5 mm. The appearance of one or more new lesions is also considered PD.

3. Progression Free Survival (PFS) per RECIST 1.1 as assessed by BICR (Time Frame - Up to approximately 28 months):
PFS is defined as the time from the first dose of study intervention to the first documented PD per RECIST 1.1 by BICR or death due to any cause, whichever occurs first. Per RECIST 1.1 adjusted for this study to allow a maximum of 10 target lesions and a maximum of 5 target lesions per organ, PD is defined as at least a 20% increase in the SOD of target lesions. In addition to the relative increase of 20%, the sum must also demonstrate an absolute increase of at least 5 mm. The appearance of one or more new lesions is also considered PD.

4. Time-To-Progression (TTP) per RECIST 1.1 as assessed by BICR (Time Frame - Up to approximately 28 months):
TTP is defined as the time from the first dose of study intervention to the first documented PD per RECIST 1.1 assessed by BICR.
