P3BEP Germ Cell Tumour Study

Registered Title

Phase 3 Accelerated BEP Trial: A randomised phase 3 trial of accelerated versus standard BEP chemotherapy for patients with intermediate and poor-risk metastatic germ cell tumours.

Purpose

The purpose of this study is to determine whether accelerated BEP chemotherapy is more effective than standard BEP chemotherapy in males with intermediate and poor-risk metastatic germ cell tumours.

Lay Summary

Who is it for?

You may be eligible to join this study if you are a male aged 16 years to 45 years old and you have been diagnosed with metastatic germ cell tumour/s in the testes, retro-peritoneum or mediastinum.

Study details:

Participants in this study will be randomly (by chance) allocated to one of two groups. Participants in one group will receive the current gold standard treatment for germ cell tumours, which is a chemotherapy combination called BEP (bleomycin, etoposide and cisplatin) administered on a 3 weekly cycle. BEP is given with a drug called pegfilgrastim which encourages white blood cell production and prevents blood cell complications of chemotherapy. Participants in the other group will receive the same dose of BEP but on a 2 weekly schedule. This is called 'accelerated BEP'.
