Phase II Study of Oxaliplatine-Paclitaxel in Patients With Metastatic Germ Cell Tumor Refractory to Cisplatin
Phase II Study of Combined Oxaliplatin and Paclitaxel for Metastatic Germ Cell Tumors
To evaluate the efficacy of the oxaliplatin-paclitaxel combination i.e. evaluation of tumor response rate using World Health Organization/Union Internationale Contre le Cancer (WHO/UICC) and Indianapolis tumor marker (human chorionic gonadotropin [hCG], alpha fetoprotein [AFP]) criteria in metastatic germ cell cancer patients

  • Age > or =to 18
  • Adequate bone marrow reserve
  • Neutrophil count > or =to 1500/mm3
  • Platelets > or =to 100,000/mm3
  • Renal function:Creatinine < 3 x ULN
  • Liver function:Transaminases < or =to 2.5 x ULN, total bilirubin < 1.5 x ULN (if liver metastases, transaminases < or =to 5 x ULN)
  • Laboratory values obtained in the week preceding study entry
  • Neurosensory < or =to grade 1 NCI CTC
  • Signed informed consent obtained prior to all study procedures

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Concomitant high-dose steroids (except for antiemetic prophylaxis)
