Interaction of tumour cells with cultured stromal cells from human bone marrow.


Adhesion of tumour cells to cultured bone marrow stromal cells has been studied in an in vitro model system. Stromal cells were isolated from bone marrow aspirates. Immunohistochemical and electron microscopical analysis revealed a uniform cell monolayer of myofibroblastic cells, expressing fibroblast antigens and smooth muscle actin. Cell interactions with… (More)
