In previous studies, we developed serum-free, bovine pituitary extract (BPE)-free culture conditions for the growth of normal and neoplastic rat mammary epithelial cells. The present studies were aimed at determining if these culture methods could be used to study the influence of specific growth factors on the proliferative potential of normal human mammary epithelial (HME) cells and cells derived from human breast cancer (HBC) specimens. Our results indicate that normal HME cells in primary… CONTINUE READING
