Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Progression free survival (PFS) [ Time Frame: at 3 years (± 1 month) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    success/failure of PFS

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Adverse events (AEs) temporarily associated with the trial treatment [ Time Frame: at 3 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    AEs are collected from inclusion until 30 days after the end of treatment

  • Late AEs [ Time Frame: at the latest at 20 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    AEs will be collected from 30 days after the end of treatment until the end of the follow-up phase

  • Incidence of secondary malignancies [ Time Frame: at the latest at 20 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
  • Response rate [ Time Frame: at 3 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Time to progression (TTP) [ Time Frame: at the latest at 20 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    from registration until documented progressive disease, relapse or death due to tumor.

  • Overall survival (OS) [ Time Frame: at the latest at 20 years. ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    from registration to the date of death from any cause

  • Seminoma specific survival [ Time Frame: at the latest at 20 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    from registration to the date of death due to seminoma

  • PFS [ Time Frame: at the latest at 20 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    from registration to the date of failure of PFS

  • Localization of progression [ Time Frame: at the latest at 20 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    from first localization where recurrent tumor disease is detected

Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years and older
Genders Eligible for Study:   Male
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Patient has given written informed consent before registration.
  • Histologically confirmed classical seminoma treated with primary inguinal orchidectomy.
  • Tumor stage at diagnosis or at relapse after primary active surveillance is pT1-4* cN1-2 cM0 according to UICC TNM 2009 is pT1-4 cN1-2 cM0 according to UICC TNM 2009.
  • Multi-slice CT of the chest, abdomen and pelvis or a FDG-PET-CT within 4 weeks prior to patient registration, showing stage IIA/B disease. Oral and i.v. contrast have to be administered.
  • Age ≥ 18 years.
  • WHO performance status 0-2.
  • Adequate hematological values: neutrophils ≥ 1.0 x 109/L, platelets ≥ 100x 109/L.
  • Adequate renal function (calculated creatinine clearance ≥ 50 ml/min, according to the formula of Cockcroft-Gault).
  • Patient agrees not to father a child during trial treatment and during 12 months thereafter.
  • Patient has been proposed sperm conservation.
  • Patient compliance and geographic proximity allow proper staging and follow-up for at least 3 years.

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Previous or concurrent malignancy within 5 years with the exception of localized non-melanoma skin cancer or stage I seminoma for patients entering the trial with relapse during active surveillance.
  • Psychiatric disorder precluding understanding of information on trial-related topics or giving informed consent or interfering with compliance for treatment schedule.
  • Mixed histology seminoma.
  • Elevated levels of AFP (≥ULN) at any time.
  • Any prior abdominal/pelvic radiotherapy (RT).
  • Any anti-cancer therapy after primary tumor resection (active surveillance for stage I disease is not considered as a treatment).
  • Any treatment in a clinical trial within 30 days of trial entry.
  • Any serious underlying medical condition or serious co-morbidity (at the judgment of the investigator) which could impair the ability of the patient to participate in the trial.
  • Any contraindication for the trial drug (for example, known hypersensitivity to trial drug or to any other co-component of the trial drug, past or current renal insufficiency, severe hepatic insufficiency, severe bone marrow dysfunction, tumor bleeding, major hearing defects).
  • Any concomitant drugs contraindicated for use with the trial drug according to the approved product information (for example, nephrotoxic or ototoxic medicines).
