In this diagnostic test accuracy systematic review we summarise the evidence on the diagnostic accuracy of blood α-fetoprotein (AFP), human chorionic gonadotropin (HCG) and lactate dehydrogenase (LDH) in surveillance for testicular cancer recurrence in adults. We searched four electronic databases for studies that reported the diagnostic accuracy of HCG, AFP, and/or LDH in sufficient detail for sensitivity and specificity to be calculated by extracting a 2 × 2 table comparing biomarker positi...
