Testicular Cancer clinical trials at UC Irvine
2 research studies open to eligible people
open to eligible males ages 18-39
This study is a randomized controlled biobehavioral pilot trial designed to investigate the feasibility and preliminary efficacy of a novel intervention, Goal-focused Emotion-Regulation Therapy (GET) aimed at improving distress symptoms, emotion regulation, goal navigation skills, and stress-sensitive biomarkers in young adult testicular cancer patients. Participants will be randomized to receive six sessions of GET or Individual Supportive Therapy (ISP) delivered over eight weeks. In addition to indicators of intervention feasibility, the investigators will measure primary (depressive and anxiety symptoms) and secondary (emotion regulation and goal navigation skills, career confusion) psychological outcomes prior to (T0), immediately after (T1) and twelve weeks after intervention at T2. Additionally, identified biomarkers will be measured at baseline and at T2.

This trial studies whether the blood marker micro ribonucleic acid (miRNA) 371 can predict the chance of cancer returning in patients with germ cell cancers. Studying samples of blood from patients with germ cell cancers in the laboratory may help doctors predict how likely the cancer will come back.
