 Two new cell lines, designated NMS-2 and NMS-2PC, were established in vitro from a malignant peripheral nerve sheath tumour (MPNST) in the right thigh and a retroperitoneal lesion of a 30-year-old man with neurofibromatosis type 1 (NF1). The NMS-2 cell line was derived from the first tumour, and the NMS-2PC cell line from a retroperitoneal metastatic tumour detected 9 months later. Cultured NMS-2 cells showed epithelioid features, while NMS-2PC cells showed fibroblast-like features. However… CONTINUE READING
