Testicular Cancer clinical trials at UCSF
1 research study open to eligible people
Testicular cancer is a type of cancer that grows in the testicles. UCSF is doing a study to see if "active surveillance" can help doctors watch people with low-risk cancer instead of immediately treating them with chemotherapy. Patients of all ages can participate.
Active Surveillance, Bleomycin, Etoposide, Carboplatin or Cisplatin in Treating Pediatric and Adult Patients With Germ Cell Tumors
open to all eligible people
This phase III trial studies how well active surveillance help doctors to monitor subjects with low risk germ cell tumors for recurrence after their tumor is removed. When the germ cell tumors has spread outside of the organ in which it developed, it is considered metastatic. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as bleomycin, carboplatin, etoposide, and cisplatin, work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells, by stopping them from dividing, or by stopping them from spreading. The trial studies whether carboplatin or cisplatin is the preferred chemotherapy to use in treating metastatic standard risk germ cell tumors.
