Pages: 
487–94
Synopsis: 
This study investigated the effects of chemotherapy on testosterone levels in testicular cancer patients. The hormone levels affected due to chemotherapy were differentiated from the effects of the tumour itself by comparing the hormone levels before the onset of chemotherapy to levels measured during and after completion of chemotherapy.

ABSTRACT

Background: The use of chemotherapy for the treatment of cancer began at the start of the 20th century in an attempt to narrow the universe of chemicals that affect the disease. Metastatic testicular cancer has always been sensitive to chemotherapy.
