Although our results show small effects of DBP on germ cells
in the human fetal testis, none of these effects are directly relevant to the origins of testis germ cell
cancer insofar as we presently understand this," says study coauthor Sander van den Driesche, a senior postdoctoral fellow at the MRC Centre for Reproductive Health in Edinburgh.
Cadmium chloride does not cause significant damages in the testes at a low dose of less than 3 mg/kg; however, it induces mild apoptosis of germ cells
and damage to blood-testis barrier (BTB) (12, 13).
In evaluating teratoma, alpha fetoprotein (AFP) and/or beta human chorionic gonadotropin ([beta]-HCG) are elevated in 85% of germ cell
SALL4 is a novel sensitive and specific marker for metastatic germ cell
tumors, with particular utility in detection of metastatic yolk sac tumors.

Of additional help, sex cord-stromal tumors have no association with intratubular germ cell
neoplasia, unclassified type (IGCNU), whereas IGCNU is identified in the tubules adjacent to seminomas in 90% of cases.

Follicles contain male and female germ cells
at different stages of maturation, which can be recognized by their shape, size, and nuclear features.
All germ cell
and Sertoli cell nucleoli present at stage VIII of the seminiferous epithelium cycle (SEC) were counted in 10 round or nearly-round seminiferous tubule cross-sections, chosen at random, for each animal.
Emily Curtis, of Nunthorpe, is fighting germ cell
cancer but her friends and family have come together to form Emily's Dream Team to make her wishes come true.
