This clinical trial involves the administration of the chemotherapeutic medication vinflunine. Vinflunine is not approved by the FDA and is experimental in the treatment of extensive small cell lung cancer. The purpose of this research trial is to study the effectiveness of vinflunine in patients with relapsed extensive small cell lung cancer, evaluate the toxicity, and evaluate how long the response to this drug lasts.
Eligible patients will receive vinflunine as a 15-20 minute intravenous (IV)infusion once every three weeks (21 days). This three week treatment period is called a cycle. Patients whose cancer has not grown or if it has decreased in size may receive up to 6 cycles of vinflunine. Evaluation will be conducted every other cycle.

To determine the accuracy with which morphology alone can distinguish adenocarcinoma and squamous cell carcinoma in non-small cell lung cancer.
A form of highly malignant lung cancer that is composed of small ovoid cells (SMALL CELL CARCINOMA).
A heterogeneous aggregate of at least three distinct histological types of lung cancer, including SQUAMOUS CELL CARCINOMA; ADENOCARCINOMA; and LARGE CELL CARCINOMA. They are dealt with collectively because of their shared treatment strategy.
Malignant neoplasm arising from the epithelium of the BRONCHI. It represents a large group of epithelial lung malignancies which can be divided into two clinical groups: SMALL CELL LUNG CANCER and NON-SMALL-CELL LUNG CARCINOMA.
An anaplastic, highly malignant, and usually bronchogenic carcinoma composed of small ovoid cells with scanty neoplasm. It is characterized by a dominant, deeply basophilic nucleus, and absent or indistinct nucleoli. (From Stedman, 25th ed; Holland et al., Cancer Medicine, 3d ed, p1286-7)
A group of carcinomas which share a characteristic morphology, often being composed of clusters and trabecular sheets of round "blue cells", granular chromatin, and an attenuated rim of poorly demarcated cytoplasm. Neuroendocrine tumors include carcinoids, small ("oat") cell carcinomas, medullary carcinoma of the thyroid, Merkel cell tumor, cutaneous neuroendocrine carcinoma, pancreatic islet cell tumors, and pheochromocytoma. Neurosecretory granules are found within the tumor cells. (Segen, Dictionary of Modern Medicine, 1992)
