abstract

  • The independent prognostic factors of serum tumor markers LDH and HCG, the sites of metastases, and the primary origin of GCTs can predict outcome in patients with advanced GCT. These factors should be considered in the allocation of patients with advanced disease to clinical trials and have been included in the new tumor-node-metastasis (TNM) staging systems developed for the American Joint Committee on Cancer (AJCC) and the Union Internationale Contre le Cancer (UICC).
