Effects of Modern Chemotherapy Regimens on Spermatogenesis and Steroidogenesis in Adolescent and Young Adult (AYA) Survivors of Osteosarcoma
This research trial studies saliva, semen, and blood samples to determine effects of chemotherapy on fertility in osteosarcoma survivors. Study biospecimen samples from osteosarcoma survivors in the laboratory may help doctors learn whether chemotherapy causes fertility problems and to learn more about the long term effects.
The purpose of this study is to determine whether infertility and/or biomarkers of spermatogenesis and steroidogenesis differ in male osteosarcoma survivors treated with cisplatin with or without ifosfamide compared to male controls without a history of cancer, and to evaluate whether cisplatin with or without ifosfamide for the treatment of osteosarcoma alters sperm deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) methylation.
Participants will not be paid for their participation.
