Breast Cancer

According to the American Cancer Society, in 2015 more than 230,000 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer annually in the United States, and more than 39,000 will die from the disease. This disease represents the leading cause of death among all female cancer patients. Breast cancers encompass a heterogeneous array of tumor types that are classified according to their histological and molecular characteristics. To support your breast cancer research needs ATCC provides breast cancer cell lines, a comprehensive Breast Cancer Resource Book, breast cancer tumor cell panels, as well as human primary and h-TERT-immortalized mammary cells.

Breast Cancer Cell Lines

Tumors can arise from the ducts, lobules, or connective tissues of the breast. There are over 14 types of breast cancer. Thus, to generate the most known effective treatment options, investigators need in vitro research tools that represent the heterogeneity of breast cancers in vivo. ATCC has numerous breast cancer cell lines to support your research needs.
