Systemic Therapies for Metastatic Testicular Germ Cell Tumors– Past, Present, and Future


Sunil Parimi*, Jennifer Rauw and Jenny Ko   Pages 1 - 14 ( 14 )


Testicular germ cell tumors (TGCTs) are unique to that of most other solid tumors because they are highly curable in the metastatic setting. While the use of cisplatin-based chemotherapy continues to drive cure in this patient population, important improvements in the delivery of therapy, creation of risk-adjusted treatment paradigms, and salvage-therapy options have further enhanced survival as well. The future holds promise for a more multidisciplinary approach to care, through advancements in biochemical markers and a better understanding of how surgical and radiotherapy approaches can integrate into our existing management strategies.
