Statistical methods / analysis
Assuming a median OS in the control arm of 18 months (3), this study is designed to detect a HR of 0.70 that corresponds to a survival increase of 7.7 months. With two-sided 4.0% significance level (corrected for two tests to preserve an overall study alpha two-sided of 5%), taking into account one interim analysis, and with at least 83% power, 326 events are needed with a 1:2 randomization ratio. Assuming an accrual length of 24 months and a further follow-up period of 24 months, 496 patients are estimated to be enrolled.

Assuming a median PFS in the control arm of about 10 months (3) and a HR=0.70 (alpha two sided=1.0%; power=80%), 413 events (progression or death) are needed for PFS analysis. Such events will accrue at 24 months of follow-up. Taking into account a 10% of drop-outs, it will be necessary to enroll approximately 550 patients

Summary
Brief summary
This study is testing a new cancer treatment, atezolizumab, given in combination with standard chemotherapy (paclitaxel and carboplatin) for endometrial cancer.

Who is it for?
You may be eligible to join this study if you are a woman aged 18 years or above, with advanced endometrial cancer or endometrial cancer recurrence.

Study details
Patients will be randomly allocated to one of two groups, Group 1 or Group 2.

Group 1
One third of participants will receive paclitaxel and carboplatin administered intravenously (through a fine needle directly into a vein in your arm or through an infusion port if you have one) every 3 weeks for 6-8 cycles or until treatment no longer seems to be controlling your cancer, whichever comes first. In addition, a placebo will be given via a vein every 3 weeks, until the treatment no longer controls the participants cancer. A placebo is a medication with no active ingredients that is identical in appearance to the real medication.

Group 2
Two thirds of participants will receive of paclitaxel and carboplatin administered intravenously (through a fine needle directly into a vein in your arm or through an infusion port if you have one) every 3 weeks for 6-8 cycles or until treatment no longer seems to be controlling your cancer, whichever comes first. In addition, atezolizumab will be given via a vein every 3 weeks, until the treatment no longer controls the participants cancer.

The purpose of this study is to measure the effect of atezolizumab given in combination with paclitaxel and carboplatin and placebo given in combination with paclitaxel and carboplatin. This study will also investigate the activity of this treatment on the control of cancer growth.
