Prostate Cancer Cells Derived from Familial Prostate Cancer Tumor and Methods of Use

A cell line has been generated from a culture of prostate epithelial cells taken from a prostate cancer patient with a strong family history of prostate cancer. This is the first cell line to be generated and characterized from such a patient. Description (Set) Proposed Use (Set) This in vitro model will be useful for defining the mechanisms of prostate cancer progression and for testing experimental preventive and therapeutic regimens, including both chemotherapeutic and gene therapy approaches. In addition, these cells could prove to be a useful tool for the characterization of the genetics of prostate cancer susceptibility
