Testicular tumors are heterogeneous group of neoplasms divided mainly into two types: seminomas and non-seminomas. Nucleolin (NCL) and nucleophosmin (NPM) are abundant nucleolar proteins involved in many physiologic and pathologic processes including cancer. Their overexpression was found in many tumors but it was not studied in testicular cancer.

The accurate classification and proper identification of testicular germ cell tumors is imperative for treatment selection and clinical prognosis. Although such distinction can often be achieved by mi...
Testicular germ cell tumor is the most common cancer in 20-to 35-years-old men. There are known risk factors such as undescended testicle(s) and history of testicular cancer. Most lesions are germ cel...
Cell-to-cell variation of chromosomal number in the adult testicular germ cell tumors: a comparison of chromosomal instability among histological components and its putative role in tumor progression.
By allelotyping analysis, we previously reported a putative progression pathway from germ cell neoplasia in situ (GCNIS) to seminoma, then to embryonal carcinoma in mixed-type testicular germ cell tum...
G-rich oligonucleotide, AS1411, has been shown to interact with nucleolin and to inhibit cancer cell proliferation and tumor growth. This antiproliferative action is increased when AS1411 is conjugate...
Cisplatin is a commonly used drug in the treatment of solid tumors and its application is associated with testicular toxicity. The effect of candesartan in cisplatin-induced testicular toxicity and it...
Recent data suggest that sperm cells carry an epigenetic message during spermatogenesis and that this message is crucial for the future development of the embryo. This epigenetic signature...
Trial to Evaluate Progression Free Survival With Primary Retroperitoneal Lymph-node Dissection (pRPLND) Only in Patients With Seminomatous Testicular Germ Cell Tumors With Clinical Stage IIA/B (PRIMETEST)
Primary objective: to evaluate progression-free survival in patients with clinical stage II A/B seminomatous germ cell tumor undergoing primary retroperitoneal lymph node dissection (RPLN...
This is a proof-of-concept study to define efficacy of AVELUMAB in patients with multiple relapsed/refractory germ cell tumors (GCTs). Data suggest that PD-L1 is overexpressed in TGCTs, an...
This is a proof-of-concept study to define efficacy of gemcitabine, carboplatin and VELIPARIB (ABT-888) in patients with refractory germ cell tumors (GCTs). PARP proteins are involved in b...
This is a prospective multicenter phase II trial of gemcitabine, cisplatin, and ifosfamide (GIP) in patients with relapsed non-seminomatous germ-cell tumors (NSGCT) and a predicted favorab...
Tumors or cancer of the TESTIS. Germ cell tumors (GERMINOMA) of the testis constitute 95% of all testicular neoplasms.
The twisting of the SPERMATIC CORD due to an anatomical abnormality that left the TESTIS mobile and dangling in the SCROTUM. The initial effect of testicular torsion is obstruction of venous return. Depending on the duration and degree of cord rotation, testicular symptoms range from EDEMA to interrupted arterial flow and testicular pain. If blood flow to testis is absent for 4 to 6 h, SPERMATOGENESIS may be permanently lost.
A cystic dilation of the EPIDIDYMIS, usually in the head portion (caput epididymis). The cyst fluid contains dead SPERMATOZOA and can be easily differentiated from TESTICULAR HYDROCELE and other testicular lesions.
A tricyclic pentaglycosidic antibiotic from Streptomyces strains that inhibits RNA and protein synthesis by adhering to DNA. It is used as a fluorescent dye and as an antineoplastic agent, especially in bone and testicular tumors. Plicamycin is also used to reduce hypercalcemia, especially that due to malignancies.
A condition characterized by the dilated tortuous veins of the SPERMATIC CORD with a marked left-sided predominance. Adverse effect on male fertility occurs when varicocele leads to an increased scrotal (and testicular) temperature and reduced testicular volume.
Testicular cancer represents only 1 per cent of all cancers in men, but it is the single biggest cause of cancer-related deaths in men aged 15-35 years in the UK. The causes of testicular cancer and reasons are unknown. Exposure to female hormones in the...
Cancer is not just one disease but many diseases. There are more than 100 different types of cancer. Most cancers are named for the organ or type of cell in which they start - for example, cancer that begins in the colon is called colon cancer; cancer th...
