Summary
Brief summary
RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy use different ways to stop tumor cells from dividing so
they stop growing or die. It is not known whether combining chemotherapy with bone marrow or
peripheral stem cell transplantation is more effective than combination chemotherapy alone in
treating men with germ cell tumors.

PURPOSE: Randomized phase III trial to compare the effectiveness of combination chemotherapy
with or without bone marrow or peripheral stem cell transplantation in treating men with
previously untreated germ cell tumors.
