This single arm, open-label study will evaluate the efficacy and safety of Tarceva (erlotinib) in patients with locally advanced or metastatic non-small cell lung cancer with epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) mutations. Patients will receive Tarceva at a dose of 150 mg orally daily until disease progression or unacceptable toxicity occurs.
