Brief Summary:

At present, the treatment of non-squamous cell lung cancer is based on chemotherapy with platinum eventually associated with bevacizumab. A new treatment begins at progression.

In colo-rectal metastatic cancer, it was demonstrated that the first-line of treatment could be administered according to a stop and go strategy respecting therapeutic breaks between sequences of identical treatment. During these therapeutic breaks, a treatment of maintenance is possibly better than an absence of treatment. These plans benefit to the patients in terms of efficiency but also in terms of toxicity, in particular neurological.

The question is to know if this strategy is feasible in lung cancer.

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: BUCiL

Sequence 1 : 3 cycles of cisplatin-pemetrexed-bevacizumab, then maintenance by bevacizumab if disease control. If progression --> Sequence 2

Sequence 2 : 3 cycles of cisplatin-pemetrexed-bevacizumab, then maintenance by bevacizumab-pemetrexed if disease control

Drug: Cisplatin
75 mg/m2, IV (in the vein) on day 1 of each 21 day cycle. During 3 cycles of each sequence

Drug: Bevacizumab
7,5 mg/kg, IV (in the vein) on day 1 of each 21 day cycle until progression for each sequence

Drug: Pemetrexed
500 mg/m2, IV (in the vein) on day 1 of each 21 day cycle. During 3 cycles for the 1st sequence and until progression for the 2nd sequence.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Feasibility [ Time Frame: After 3 cycles ]
    Number of patients receiving 3 cycles of chemotherapy with full-dose platinum in the 2nd sequence

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Control rate after the 2nd sequence [ Time Frame: After 3 cycles ]
  2. Response rate after the 1st sequence [ Time Frame: After 3 cycles ]
  3. Overall survival [ Time Frame: 12 months ]
  4. Quality of life [ Time Frame: During Sequence 2 : at the beginning and after 3 cycles ]
