The last decade has seen dramatically improved understanding of the nature and behaviour of Germ Cell Tumours, as well as improved therapeutic outcomes. This volume contains `state of the art' summaries on a variety of interest areas discussed at the Third Germ Cell Tumour Conference, Leeds, in September 1993. Subject areas covered epidemiology, aetiology, pathology, molecular genetics, surgery and medical oncology. Specific attention was paid to germ cell tumours in children, embryology and mal-descent of the testis, carcinoma-in-situ, seminoma, prognostic factors, cerebral metastases, treatment strategies (including chemotherapy dose intensification and autologous bone marrow transplantation), and supportive therapies for those with such tumours, who can now expect a high probability of cure.
For consultants, medical staff and laboratory scientists with an interest in epidemiology, aetiology, pathology, molecular genetics, surgery and medical oncology.
