Testicular Cancer Trials

P3BEP Trial

The current gold standard practice for the treatment of germ cell tumours is the use of a chemotherapy combination called BEP which consists of three chemotherapy agents, Bleomycin, Etoposide and Cisplatin administered on a 3 weekly cycle.  BEP is given with a drug called  pegylated G-CSF (or pegfilgrastim) which stimulates white blood cell production. 

The purpose of this study is to determine whether giving the same dose of BEP on a 2-weekly schedule will be more effective than a 3-weekly schedule and will be well tolerated.  The 2-weekly schedule is called ‘accelerated BEP’.
