Pathologically (histologically or cytologically) proven diagnosis of extensive disease small cell lung cancer without brain metastases and with 1-3 metastatic lesions within 6 months of registration; Patients must have completed 4-6 cycles of platinum-based chemotherapy; Patients must be registered on study within 8 weeks of completing chemotherapy.
