Fourteen breast cancer lines (8 human, 5 rat, and 1 mouse) have been studied in terms of their ability to form multicellular tumor spheroids (MTS) with the agar-base method. Only 8 of the lines formed MTS in contrast to a 100% efficiency in a series of 11 varied tumors reported in the initial studies with this method. We have compared the lines that do and do not form MTS in terms of a variety of characteristics (e.g., estrogen receptors, time in serial passage, growth in nude mice, etc.), and… CONTINUE READING
