  Purpose

Taxol and carboplatin are commonly used drugs for the treatment of stage IIIB or IV non small cell lung carcinoma.

This study compares treatment with Taxol/carboplatin given every 3 weeks to a schedule where it is given weekly.

The purpose of the study is to determine the most effective and safe schedule for giving these drugs in non small cell lung carcinoma.
