Brief Summary:
This study evaluates the use of Targretin capsules (bexarotene) in combination with standard chemotherapy for the treatment of metastatic Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer (NSCLC) in patients who have not yet received chemotherapy for their lung cancer.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Non-small Cell Lung Cancer Drug: bexarotene Phase 3

Detailed Description:
This study evaluates the use of Targretin capsules (bexarotene) in combination with Cisplatin and Vinorelbine for the treatment of metastatic non-small cell lung cancer in patients who have not yet received chemotherapy for their lung cancer. Every patient receives a platinum-containing chemotherapy every four weeks for at least four chemotherapy cycles (approximately four months). Half of the patients are randomly assigned to receive Targretin capsules once daily in addition to the chemotherapy. The other half is randomized to receive a standard platinum-containing chemotherapy without Targretin capsules.
