Reproductive Cancer

According to the American Cancer Society, over 28,500 deaths in 2013 were due to cancers of the female reproductive system. These cancers can be divided into cervical, endometrial, and ovarian. ATCC houses representatives of gynecological cancers from human and animal donors. We have also organized selected cell lines into Gynecological Cancer Cell Panels, to support the high-throughput screening of chemotherapeutics. In addition, to support the researcher’s need for physiological controls for tumor cells ATCC provides human primary and hTERT-immortalized cells.

Cervical Cancer

The cervix is sensitive to infection by human papillomaviruses (HPV), which can lead to cellular alterations resulting in cancer. For example, HeLa, the first cell line to successfully be cultured continuously, is positive for HPV. ATCC has 26 cervical cell lines to support your research needs; explore the collection today!

Uterine/Endometrial Cancer

Endometrial cancers arise from the innermost layer of the uterus. These cancers are the most commonly diagnosed among reproductive cancers. While this cancer is usually detected and treated early, it has been correlated with taking hormone therapy for breast cancer. Browse our collection of human and bovine uterine cells.

Ovarian Cancer

Because ovarian cancer is notoriously difficult to detect, it stands highest in mortality among cancers of the female reproductive system. To help researchers investigate this killer, ATCC provides ovarian cell lines, representing the normal and diseased tissues of multiple species.
