AGCT1531 (Children and Adults with Germ Cell Tumors)

What is the Purpose of this Study?

If you choose to join this study, you will:

  • Be assigned to one of the following groups:
    • Low risk, standard risk 1 or standard risk 2

If you are in:

  • Low risk group:
    • Be closely watched for 2 years and less frequently for years 3-5
    • Get blood tests and imaging tests to see if your tumor has came back
  • Standard risk 1 and 2 groups:
    • Be put into one of two groups (Like the flip of a coin) to get chemotherapy with bleomycin, etoposide and either cisplatin (standard) or carboplatin (experimental).
    • Get one of the two treatments for either 3 or 4 cycles that last 3 weeks (21 days) each.
    • Have tissue and scans from your tumor tested
What is the Condition Being Studied?

Pediatric and Adult Patients with Germ Cell Tumors

Who Can Participate in the Study?

Female children and adults who:

  • Are aged 49 or younger
  • Have primary extracranial germ cell tumor
  • Have received prior systemic therapy
Age Group

What is Involved?

We are doing this study to see if we keep an eye on patients with low risk germ cell tumors after your tumor is removed, will it work like following surgery with chemotherapy and/or more surgery.

For the standard risk groups 1 and 2, we want to compare the effects of carboplatin with cisplatin for patients with standard risk germ cell tumors to find out which one is better.
