In this study the common 4G/4G variant of PAI-1 4G/5G gene polymorphism is associated with reduced cancer-related survival in testicular cancer patients treated with platinum-based chemotherapy. This observation suggests that PAI-1 (4G/5G polymorphism) may be an additional biomarker in testicular cancer and contribute to the identification of patients who are at increased risk of not responding to standard chemotherapy.
