Pre-Assignment Details
Significant events and approaches for the overall study following participant enrollment, but prior to group assignment
The trial consists of induction therapy (up to 4 cycles of pemetrexed-cisplatin treatment) and maintenance therapy (pemetrexed only). Only participants who do not develop disease progression during induction therapy are eligible to receive maintenance therapy.

Reporting Groups
  Description
Pemetrexed Induction Therapy: pemetrexed 500 milligrams per square meter (mg/m^2) and cisplatin 75 mg/m^2, intravenous, day 1 of each 21 day cycle for the first 4 cycles; Maintenance Therapy: pemetrexed 500 milligrams per square meter (mg/m^2), intravenous, day 1 of each 21 day cycle until progression or unacceptable toxicity occurs
