Germ cell tumors belong to the most chemosensitive malignancies. Paclitaxel in combination with ifosfamide and cisplatin (TIP) has become a common regimen for salvage treatment of germ cel...
This is an open label, multi-institutional, single arm phase II trial of pembrolizumab in patients with incurable platinum refractory germ cell tumors. No randomization or blinding is invo...
RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy use different ways to stop tumor cells from dividing so they stop growing or die. It is not known whether combining chemotherapy with bone marrow tran...
This study will evaluate the use of ZD1839 in the treatment of subjects with refractory germ cell tumors. Subjects will take ZD1839 for one year in the absence of excessive toxicity or dec...
The purpose of this study is to test the safety and effectiveness of durvalumab with tremelimumab in patients with relapsed or refractory germ cell tumors.
In the present review, we summarize the recent developments in the management of germ cell tumors (GCTs).
Malignant ovarian germ cell tumors usually occur in young women. Until the 1970s, before establishment of systemic chemotherapy, malignant ovarian germ cell tumors had a very poor prognosis. Recently,...
We studied 137 primary testicular germ cell tumors (TGCTs) using high-dimensional assays of genomic, epigenomic, transcriptomic, and proteomic features. These tumors exhibited high aneuploidy and a pa...
Despite the high cure rate of germ-cell tumors (GCTs), the 5-year survival rate for those patients with metastatic poor-risk GCT rarely exceeds 50%. The purpose of this review is to highlight past and...
Evaluate the prevalence, trends and outcomes of minimally invasive surgical staging (MIS) of malignant ovarian germ cell tumors (MOGCTs) apparently confined to the ovary.
Tumors or cancer of the TESTIS. Germ cell tumors (GERMINOMA) of the testis constitute 95% of all testicular neoplasms.
A malignant ovarian neoplasm, thought to be derived from primordial germ cells of the sexually undifferentiated embryonic gonad. It is the counterpart of the classical seminoma of the testis, to which it is both grossly and histologically identical. Dysgerminomas comprise 16% of all germ cell tumors but are rare before the age of 10, although nearly 50% occur before the age of 20. They are generally considered of low-grade malignancy but may spread if the tumor extends through its capsule and involves lymph nodes or blood vessels.

The process of germ cell development in the female from the primordial germ cells through OOGONIA to the mature haploid ova (OVUM).
Neoplasms composed of primordial GERM CELLS of embryonic GONADS or of elements of the germ layers of the EMBRYO, MAMMALIAN. The concept does not refer to neoplasms located in the gonads or present in an embryo or FETUS.
The process of germ cell development in the male from the primordial germ cells, through SPERMATOGONIA; SPERMATOCYTES; SPERMATIDS; to the mature haploid SPERMATOZOA.
