|Brief Title ICMJE||Bleomycin, Etoposide, and Cisplatin in Treating Patients With Metastatic Germ Cell Cancer of the Testicles|
|Official Title ICMJE||A Randomized Phase III Toxicity Study of Day 2, 3, 8, 15 Short (30 Minute) Versus Day 1, 2, 3 Long (72 Hours) Infusion Bleomycin for Patients With IGCCCG Good Prognosis Germ Cell Tumors, TE3|
RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as bleomycin, etoposide, and cisplatin, work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells or by stopping them from dividing. Giving more than one drug (combination chemotherapy) may kill more tumor cells. It is not yet known which schedule of bleomycin is more effective when given together with etoposide and cisplatin in treating metastatic germ cell cancer of the testicles.
PURPOSE: This randomized phase III trial is studying two different schedules of bleomycin to compare how well they work when given together with etoposide and cisplatin in treating patients with metastatic germ cell cancer of the testicles.
OUTLINE: This is a randomized, multicenter study. Patients are stratified according to age (≤ 30 years vs > 30 years), current smoker or has smoked within the past 1 year (yes vs no), and creatinine clearance (≤ 80 mL/min vs > 80 mL/min). Patients are randomized to 1 of 2 treatment arms.
In both arms, treatment repeats every 3 weeks for up to 3 courses in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.
After completion of study treatment, patients are followed at 4 weeks and then every 3 months for 24 months.
