This study drug(Amrubicin)is believed to work by stopping the tumor cell in your body from growing. The purpose of this study is to evaluate the efficacy and safety of amrubicin with cisplatin compared to etoposide-cisplatin in the first-line treatment in extensive disease small cell lung cancer The subject, who is randomized to AP group may be involved into a pharmacokinetic study of amrubicin and the metabolites: amrubicinol voluntarily.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Overall Survival [ Time Frame: 1.5 years after last subject enrolled ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Progression-Free Survival [ Time Frame: 1.5 years after last subject enrolled ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Objective Response Rate [ Time Frame: participants were followed for the duration of the study, an average of 12 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Per Response Evaluation Criteria In Solid Tumors Criteria (RECIST v1.0) for target lesions and assessed by MRI: Complete Response (CR), Disappearance of all target lesions; Partial Response (PR), >=30% decrease in the sum of the longest diameter of target lesions; Overall Response (OR) = CR + PR.

Other Outcome Measures:
  • Overall Survival at 6 and 12 Months [ Time Frame: 6 and 12 months. ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
