Development of Media for Isolation and Cultivation of Human Cancer Cells

  • Albert Leibovitz


The advances in our knowledge of the growth, nutrition, and metabolic requirements of established tissue cell cultures (Rothblat and Cristofalo, 1972) have not solved the problems of developing permanent cell cultures from human solid tumor tissues. There has been little progress in our knowledge of the mechanisms by which cancer cells can become adapted to survive in vitro.
