RATIONALE: Vaccines may help the body build an immune response to kill tumor cells.

PURPOSE: Randomized phase III trial to compare the effectiveness of vaccination with
monoclonal antibody BEC2 and BCG with that of no further therapy in treating patients who
have limited-stage small cell lung cancer.
