Although nasopharyngeal carcinomas (NPC) are generally fast growing tumors with short doubling time, NPC cells are extremely difficult to grow in tissue culture. Even heterotransplantation in nude mice is quite difficult; experimental conditions required for NPC tissue transplantation are very poorly defined.
