Collect Long-term Data on Subjects Following Participation in Previous EMD 531444 (L-BLP25 or BLP25 Liposome Vaccine) Clinical Trials
This is an open-label, common follow-up trial. Subjects who were enrolled in a Merck KGaA, EMD Serono or Merck Serono Japan sponsored trial with Tecemotide (L-BLP25) can be enrolled in this follow-up trial to continue their maintenance treatment with Tecemotide (L-BLP25). Subjects will be transferred once all feeder trial objectives have been met. Subjects who received Tecemotide (L-BLP25) in a feeder trial will continue Tecemotide (L-BLP25) treatment in this follow-up trial and have safety assessments performed as well as be observed for progressive disease and survival in 6- month intervals. Subjects who had not received Tecemotide (L-BLP25) in feeder trials, or discontinued treatment will only be observed for progressive disease and survival in 6-month intervals and will not be provided treatment with Tecemotide (L-BLP25).

- Long Term Safety - number of patients experiencing any adverse event [ Time Frame: Time from first dose up to 30 days after last dose of study treatment with L-BLP25 reported between day of first patient enrolled ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]Listing of adverse event rate in patients receiving L-BLP25 only.
