A 31 year old patient with non-seminomatous germ-cell tumour of the testis was treated with Ukrain following operation and gamma-radiotherapy. 20 mg Ukrain ampoules were injected i.v. twice weekly with a total dose of 200 mg for each of three courses of treatment. Within the period of 24 months observation no recurrence or metastases were found. The results testify that Ukrain in complex treatment of patients with non-seminomatous germ-cell tumours of the testis can contribute to optimisation of immune status which improves the prognoses and results of treatment.
