PURPOSE Classic serum tumor markers (human chorionic gonadotropin, α1-fetoprotein and lactate dehydrogenase) have an important role in managing testicular germ cell tumor. Since only 60% of all patients with testicular germ cell tumor have elevations of these markers, there is a need for new biomarkers with greater sensitivity/specificity. miRNAs are… CONTINUE READING
