Of more than 7,500 men with nonresectable lung cancer with extensive disease treated on various regimens assigned at random, 1,068 received the best possible supportive treatment without any specific chemotherapeutic agent. This group of patients was reviewed for information pertinent to the natural history of bronchogenic carcinoma. The prognosis for lung cancer patients is usually poor. Median survival time was related mainly to patient's status at entry into the study: performance status using the Karnofsky scale, cell type and extent of disease.
