abstract

  • Four cycles of cisplatin and etoposide is highly effective therapy for seminoma and is the standard therapy at our center. Elevation of the serum markers HCG and LDH were of prognostic significance, while an extragonadal primary tumor site was not associated with an adverse prognosis. Studies of tumor biology, including genetic analysis, are ongoing to determine other parameters that may correlate with response and survival.
