ZD 1839 (Iressa)
Drug: ZD1839 (Iressa)
Gefitinib supplied for oral use at the dose and schedule that the patient received in the previous gefitinib clinical study. In the case of placebo patients, the gefitinib dose will be as described in the protocol of their previous gefitinib clinical study.

Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Patients who have completed preceding gefitinib therapy from either the 1839IL/0709 (250mg dosing) study or 1839IL/0710 (250mg dosing) study and in the opinion of the investigator may benefit from further gefitinib treatment.
  • No more than 14 days lapse in gefitinib treatment between the patient completing the preceding gefitinib clinical study and beginning of this study except when agreed by the AstraZeneca physician.

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Any evidence of clinically active interstitial lung disease (patients with chronic,stable, radiographic changes who are asymptomatic need not be excluded).
  • In the opinion of the investigator, any evidence of severe or uncontrolled systemic disease (e.g. unstable or uncompensated respiratory, cardiac, hepatic or renal disease).
  • Withdrawal, at any time, from the preceding gefitinib study.
