  • New treatment for TC?

    Quite an interesting read on possible new treatment options (especially for chemotherapy resistant TC) I wanted to share with you:

    Pretty interesting Chris.

    It's great to know that despite high cure rates, research is still going on in TC. Hopefully, one day, we'll cure every man with TC.

    Many other cancers, such as breast, lung, colorectal, lymphomas, leukemias, etc., have a genetic print and treatments are oriented based on these molecular signatures. That's not the case yet in TC.

    We must keep in mind that this study was in vitro and in vivo in mice with inoculated germ cell tumor cells. So, tomorrow isn't the day that these treatment modalities will be available. They need to pass phase I, II and III clinical trials before !

    Thanks for posting this, Chris !
