Abstract BACKGROUND: Pancreatic cancer remains a fatal disease. Experimental systems are needed for personalized treatment strategies, drug testing and to further understand tumor biology. Cell cultures can serve as an excellent preclinical platform, but their generation remains challenging. METHODS: Tumor cells from surgically removed pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC) specimens […]
Novel methods for in vitro modeling of pancreatic cancer reveal important aspects for successful primary cell culture.
