Abstract:
Resistance to chemotherapy has been reported in various malignancies and constitutes a major challenge in cancer care. Over the years, several pathways have been suggested in the literature, but the mechanisms behind resistance to treatment remain unclear. Testicular germ cell tumours (TGCTs), the most common malignancy in young men, are known for their extreme sensitivity to cisplatin-based chemotherapy and their excellent clinical outcome, making them an ideal tumour model for the investigation of cisplatin-induced sensitivity and resistance.
