Primary Outcome Measures:
  • The primary objective of this study is to compare overall survival for ZD1839 plus best supportive care versus placebo plus best supportive care

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • · ZD1839 + BSC versus Placebo + BSC in terms of time to treatment failure
  • · ZD1839 + BSC versus Placebo + BSC in terms of investigator assessed overall
  • · objective tumour response (CR + PR)
  • · ZD1839 + BSC versus Placebo + BSC in terms of tolerability
  • · ZD1839 + BSC versus Placebo + BSC in terms of quality of life changes
