The purpose of this study is to determine duration before progression of first-line treatment chemotherapy following erlotinib in second-line comparing erlotinib in first-line following chemotherapy in second-line in old patients with none small cell lung cancer.

Condition Intervention Phase
Non Small Cell Lung Cancer
Drug: Erlotinib
Drug: taxotere
Phase 2

Study Type: Observational
Study Design: Observational Model: Case-Only
Time Perspective: Prospective
Official Title: A Multicenter Randomized Phase II Trial in NSCLC Stage IV and IIIB (T4 With Pleural Effusion) in Elderly Independent Patients the Schedule Docetaxel / Gemcitabine First Line Following by Erlotinib When Progression Versus Erlotinib First Line Following by/ Gemcitabine When Progression.
