Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Best Overall Response [ Time Frame: baseline to measured progressive disease (up to 3.2 years) ]
    Response using Response Evaluation Criteria In Solid Tumors (RECIST) criteria as determined by the Case Judgment Committee. Best overall response was defined as the most favorable overall response recorded for each patient during the observation period. Complete Response=disappearance of all target lesions; Partial Response=30% decrease in sum of longest diameter of target lesions; Progressive Disease=20% increase in sum of longest diameter of target lesions; Stable Disease=small changes that do not meet above criteria.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Duration of Response [ Time Frame: time of response to progressive disease (up to 3.2 years) ]
    The duration of a complete response (CR) or partial response (PR) was defined as the time from first objective status assessment of CR or PR to the first time of progression.

  2. Progression-Free Survival (PFS) [ Time Frame: baseline to measured progressive disease (up to 3.2 years) ]
    PFS was defined as time from the scheduled date of the first treatment cycle until the date of confirmation of progressive disease on the overall response rating. For patients who died before confirmation of progressive disease, the number of days until the date of death (from any cause) was handled as progression-free survival.

  3. Change From Baseline to 3 Months in Quality of Life Questionnaire for Cancer Patients Treated With Anticancer Drugs (QOL-ACD) [ Time Frame: Baseline (pre-dose), 3 Months after first dose of Cycle 1 ]
    20-items assessed quality of life in patients undergoing chemotherapy. Scores range from 1 (not at all/very poor) to 5 (very much/very well). Face scale scores (patient circles number of the face that best fits his/her feelings) range from 1 (sad face) to 5 (smiling face). Item scores were grouped according to Functional (daily activity: 5 items), Physical (5 items), Emotional (psychological condition: 4 items), Social Attitude (5 items), and Face Scale (1 item). Score of subscales were converted to scores with range from 0 to 100. Higher scores represent higher QOL.

  4. Change From Baseline to 3 Months in Functional Assessment of Cancer Therapy for Lung Cancer (FACT-L) Lung Cancer Subscale (LCS) [ Time Frame: Baseline (pre-dose), 3 Months after first dose of Cycle 1 ]
    FACT-L LCS measured health-related quality of life (HR-QL) related to additional concerns of lung cancer. Original LCS subscale scores range from 0 to 28, but the scores were converted to scores with a range of 0 to 100 in this study. Higher scores represent better HR-QL.
