Summaries for Germ Cell Cancer

Disease Ontology : 12 A cell type cancer that has material basis in abnormally proliferating cells derives from germ cells.

MalaCards based summary : Germ Cell Cancer, also known as malignant germ cell tumor, is related to extragonadal germ cell cancer and mixed germ cell cancer. An important gene associated with Germ Cell Cancer is H19 (H19 Imprinted Maternally Expressed Transcript), and among its related pathways/superpathways are Pathways in cancer and Immune response IFN alpha/beta signaling pathway. The drugs Methotrexate and Levoleucovorin have been mentioned in the context of this disorder. Affiliated tissues include testis, ovary and lymph node, and related phenotypes are endocrine/exocrine gland and liver/biliary system
