RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as cisplatin, ifosfamide, and paclitaxel, 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. Colony-stimulating factors, such as pegfilgrastim, may increase the number of immune cells found in bone marrow or peripheral blood and may help the immune system recover from the side effects of chemotherapy.
PURPOSE: This phase II trial is studying the side effects and how well giving combination chemotherapy together with pegfilgrastim works in treating patients with previously untreated germ cell tumors.
|Condition or disease||Intervention/treatment||Phase|
|Brain and Central Nervous System Tumors Extragonadal Germ Cell Tumor Ovarian Cancer Teratoma Testicular Germ Cell Tumor||Biological: pegfilgrastim Drug: cisplatin Drug: ifosfamide Drug: paclitaxel||Phase 2|
- Determine the efficacy of chemotherapy comprising paclitaxel, ifosfamide, and cisplatin in combination with pegfilgrastim in patients with previously untreated intermediate- or poor-risk germ cell tumors.
- Determine the safety of this regimen in these patients.
- Determine the toxicity of this regimen in these patients.
OUTLINE: Patients receive paclitaxel IV over 120-180 minutes on days 1 and 2, cisplatin IV over 30 minutes and ifosfamide IV over 120 minutes on days 1-5, and pegfilgrastim subcutaneously on day 6. Treatment repeats every 21 days for up to 4 courses in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.
Some patients may required surgery after chemotherapy and, if viable non-teratomatous germ cell tumor is found in the surgical specimen and there is no interval disease progression, these patients may receive 1-2 more courses of chemotherapy after surgery.
After completion of study treatment, patients are followed up at 28 days and then every 2 months for up to 1 year.
PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 55 patients will be accrued for this study.

Experimental: Paclitaxel, Ifosfamide, and Cisplatin
-Paclitaxel is administered first, 120 mg/m2 on days 1 and 2 every three weeks for four cycles. Cisplatin is administered at 20 mg/m2 over approximately 30 minutes daily for five days every three weeks for four courses. -The ifosfamide is given last with 1200 mg/m2 daily for five days every three weeks for four cycles.

- Rate of Complete Response [ Time Frame: 3 years ]Per Response Evaluation Criteria In Solid Tumors Criteria (RECIST v1.0) for target lesions and assessed by MRI: Complete Response (CR), Disappearance of all target lesions; Partial Response (PR), >=30% decrease in the sum of the longest diameter of target lesions
- Progression-free Survival [ Time Frame: Up to 8 years ]Progression is defined using Response Evaluation Criteria In Solid Tumors Criteria (RECIST v1.0), as a 20% increase in the sum of the longest diameter of target lesions, or a measurable increase in a non-target lesion, or the appearance of new lesions
- Percentage of Participants With Progression Free Survival [ Time Frame: 3 years ]Progression Free Survival at 3 years. Progression is defined using Response Evaluation Criteria In Solid Tumors Criteria (RECIST v1.0), as a 20% increase in the sum of the longest diameter of target lesions, or a measurable increase in a non-target lesion, or the appearance of new lesions
- Number of Patients With Treatment Related Toxicity [ Time Frame: 3 years ]Toxicity evaluated and graded according to the National Cancer Institute, Version 3.0
