abstract

  • Ifosfamide- and cisplatin-containing therapy achieves a durable CR in a minority of patients with resistant GCT as first-line therapy. Patients with a primary testis site who relapsed from a CR to first-line cisplatin therapy have a better prognosis than patients with an extragonadal primary tumor site or an IR to first-line therapy. Risk-directed clinical trials to improve response and survival in both subsets are warranted.
