This comprehensive resource provides stepwise protocols for the in vitro cultivation of the major types of human tumors. Written in a reader-friendly style, this book is organized by specific tumor, discussing cultures for lung, gastric, colorectal, pancreas, bladder, prostate, ovary, cervix, mammary carcinoma, myoepithelium, squamous, melanoma, lymphoma, glioma, and neuroendocrine tumors. Detailed techniques for initiation, propagation, and characterization of established cell lines are presented. Drug treatment, selection, differentiation, assays for malignant cells, risks, and applications are discussed. An extensive listing of vendors for equipment and other cell culture products is also included.

"This book should be used as reference source for culturing different tumor types. It is a cookbook of sorts, but instead of recipes it has protocols." (E-STREAMS, August 2004)
