Phase N/A

Testis CAB: Cabazitaxel as Salvage Treatment for Cisplatin-resistant Germ Cell Cancer

Patients with metastatic germ cell cancer and relapse after two or more courses of cisplatin-based chemotherapy or after high-dose chemotherapy have a poor prognosis and no curative options. Taxanes in various combinations unfold cytotoxic effects on germ cell tumors resistant to conventional doses of cisplatin. Paclitaxel in combination with ifosfamide ...


A Prospective Study of Cabazitaxel in Patients With Non Seminomatous Germ-cell Tumors

Cabazitaxel is a new generation taxane with a high capacity for blood-brain barrier crossing and limited peripheral neuro-toxicity, two major potential advantages in patients with advanced NSGCTs. Cabazitaxel has a broader in vitro spectrum of activity than docetaxel. Taxanes have demonstrated activity in pre-treated GCTs and are now part of ...


Molecular-Guided Therapy for Childhood Cancer

The purpose of this study is to test the feasibility (ability to be done) of experimental technologies to determine a tumor's molecular makeup. This technology includes a genomic report based on DNA exomes and RNA sequencing that will be used to discover new ways to understand cancers and potentially predict ...

Phase N/A

Study of Individuals and Families at High Risk for Testicular Cancer

OBJECTIVES: - Identify new families with familial testicular germ cell tumors (TGCT). - Determine the clinical features of familial TGCT. - Determine the underlying genetic mechanism for susceptibility to familial TGCT. - Determine the various parameters related to psychosocial and behavioral issues resulting from being a member of a family ...

Phase N/A

A Novel Single Arm Phase II Study for Relapsed Germ Cell Tumours With Poor Prognosis

Patients will receive a 4 drug combination chemotherapy in hospital over two nights. On the third day, the patient will receive an injection of pegfilgrastim. This stimulates the bone marrow to produce white blood cells and shortens the period of risk of serious infection. The treatment will be repeated every ...


Combination Chemotherapy in Treating Patients With Stage II or Stage III Germ Cell Tumors

OBJECTIVES: - Compare progression-free survival rates of patients with poor prognosis stage II or III non-seminomatous germ cell tumors with an unfavorable decrease of tumor markers after treatment with 1 course of bleomycin, etoposide, and cisplatin followed by subsequent treatment with 3 additional courses of bleomycin, etoposide, and cisplatin OR ...


Collecting and Storing Blood and Brain Tumor Tissue Samples From Children With Brain Tumors

OBJECTIVES: I. Collect brain tumor tissue and an accompanying blood sample from pediatric patients with brain tumors treated at Children's Oncology Group institutions. II. Provide a repository for long-term storage of specimens from these patients. III. Make these specimens available to qualified researchers to understand the biology of pediatric brain ...

Phase N/A

Autologous Peripheral Blood Stem Cell Transplant for Germ Cell Tumors

OBJECTIVES Primary Determine overall survival (OS) of patients with germ cell tumors treated with tandem autologous stem cell transplantation with non-cross-resistant conditioning regimens. Secondary Determine disease-free survival (DFS) of patients treated with this regimen. Determine the toxicity of tandem transplants Determine the time to engraftment of neutrophils and platelets in ...


Treatment Outcome and Quality of Life in Patients With Pediatric Extra-Cranial Germ Cell Tumors Previously Treated on Clinical Trial CCLG-GC-1979-01 or CCLG-GC-1989-01

OBJECTIVES: - Determine the late effects of treatment and the quality-of-life of patients with germ cell tumors (GCT) previously treated on clinical trial CCLG-GC-1979-01 or CCLG-GC-1989-01. - Evaluate the late effects of carboplatin, etoposide, and bleomycin in patients treated on clinical trial CCLG-GC-1989-01. - Determine the toxicity of bleomycin and ...
