Summary
Brief summary
RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy use different ways to stop tumor cells from dividing so
they stop growing or die. Combining more than one drug may kill more tumor cells. It is not
yet known which combination chemotherapy regimen is more effective for treating non-small
cell lung cancer.

PURPOSE: Randomized phase II trial to compare the effectiveness of two combination
chemotherapy regimens in treating patients who have non-small cell lung cancer.
