  • Description: Epithelial ovarian cancer cell lines spontaneously derived from solid tumor pre-treatment. Cell line aquired resistance to carboplatin
  • Production details: Patient ascites were centrifuged and seeded in 100mm plate with OSE medium and maintained for 40 days with weekly media replacement.
  • Additional notes: Patient 2295 was diagnosed with ovarian cancer following imaging, ascites puncture, and partial ommentectomy. Patient was included in a clinical trial and treated with cisplatin/topotecan for the first four months following diagnosis. From months 4-7, patient received carboplatin and paclitaxel and responded well to chemotherapy initially. Three months after the end of chemotherapy however, ascites volume increased and later underwent ovarian cytoreduction. Eleven months after diagnosis, she ...
