RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy use different ways to stop tumor cells from dividing so they stop growing or die. Combining chemotherapy with peripheral stem cell transplantation may allow the doctor to give higher doses of chemotherapy drugs and kill more tumor cells.
PURPOSE: This phase II trial is studying how well giving combination chemotherapy together with bone marrow transplantation or peripheral stem cell transplantation works in treating patients with relapsed germ cell cancer.
|Condition or disease||Intervention/treatment||Phase|
|Brain and Central Nervous System Tumors Extragonadal Germ Cell Tumor Ovarian Cancer Teratoma Testicular Germ Cell Tumor||Biological: filgrastim Drug: carboplatin Drug: etoposide Drug: ifosfamide Drug: paclitaxel Procedure: autologous bone marrow transplantation Procedure: bone marrow ablation with stem cell support||Phase 2|
- Estimate the antitumor activity of 2 courses of paclitaxel and carboplatin regimens with autologous stem cell rescue in patients with relapsed germ cell cancer.
- Evaluate the toxic effects of paclitaxel, carboplatin and etoposide (VP-16) with stem cell support followed by paclitaxel, carboplatin and ifosfamide with stem cell support in these patients.
OUTLINE: Patients receive filgrastim (G-CSF) SC or IV 4 days prior to peripheral blood stem cells (PBSC) apheresis. Autologous bone marrow harvest is performed when adequate stem cells cannot be collected.
Patients then receive course 1 of high-dose chemotherapy beginning on day -7 with paclitaxel IV over 24 hours. On days -6 to -4, patients receive etoposide IV over 2 hours and carboplatin (CBDCA) IV over 30 minutes 3 times daily. Following a 2 or 3 week recovery, a second course of chemotherapy begins on day -7, consisting of paclitaxel IV over 24 hours, then CBDCA and ifosfamide on days -6 to -4.
Reinfusion of PBSC and marrow begins on day -2 in both course 1 and 2. In addition, G-CSF IV is given twice a day until 3 consecutive postnadir days of granulocytes of at least 1000/mm^3 are maintained. On day 0, stem cells with or without bone marrow product are again administered.
Surgery may be performed after course 2 if indicated.
PROJECTED ACCRUAL: The expected accrual rate is 12 patients per year over 2 years.

- Progression-free Survival [ Time Frame: Until disease progression, up to 5 years. ]Estimated using the product-limit method of Kaplan and Meier. Progression is defined as an increase o any radiologically measureable tumor by greater than 25% or a greater than 10% increase of elevated tumor markers.
- Toxic Effects [ Time Frame: From date of randomization until death of any cause, assessed up to 12 weeks ]Number of Participants with Grade 3 and 4 Adverse Events Related to Protocol-based Therapy
- Overall Survival [ Time Frame: Until death from any cause, up to 5 years. ]Estimated using the product-limit method of Kaplan and Meier.
