We are studying how well active surveillance, or two different combinations of chemotherapy work in treating children 11 and older and adults under age 25 with germ cell tumors.
Active surveillance may help doctors to monitor subjects with low risk germ cell tumors after their tumor is removed. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as bleomycin, carboplatin, etoposide, and cisplatin, work in different ways to stop the growth of standard risk tumor cells. This study will randomly assign standard risk participants to be treated with either cisplatin or carboplatin to compare them to find out which is better.
What we're hoping for
We hope to find an effective treatment that reduces the risk of long term side effects from chemotherapy for children and adults with germ cell tumors.
