We have attempted to grow several kinds of malignant tumors using human tumor stem cell assay. Formation of colonies in vitro was seen in 65 of 132 primary tumors (49%), including 25 of 41 (61%) uroepithelial cancers, 12 of 19 (63%) renal cancers, five of 12 (42%) testicular cancers, five of 21 (24%) gastrointestinal malignancies, five of 12 (42%) lung cancers, five of 11 (45%) hematopoietic malignancies and five of 16 (31%) other malignancies. Growth sufficient for in vitro chemosensitivity… CONTINUE READING
