As only 60% of the patients with germ cell tumour (GCT) express the classical markers, new markers as for example microRNAs (miRNAs) are required. One promising candidate is miR-371a-3p, but data are sparse to date. We measured serum levels of miR-371a-3p in GCT patients, in controls, and in cases with other malignancies. We also assessed the expression in(More)
BACKGROUND microRNAs (miRs)-371-3 are suggested to be novel biomarkers of germ cell tumors (GCTs), but their specificity is unresolved. We aimed at clarifying the origin of miR 371a-3p by measuring this miR in peripheral vein blood, and in fluids present in the vicinity of GCTs. METHODS miR-371a-3p levels were measured by quantitative PCR in 9 tumor(More)
BACKGROUND Major life-threatening complications secondary to cisplatin-based chemotherapy are rare in patients with testicular germ cell tumour (GCT). The incidence of complications increases with dosage of chemotherapy and with a variety of patient-related as well as disease-related conditions. We here report the first case of GCT experiencing as many as(More)
