Development and assessment of in vitro tumour models for anti-cancer drug testing

Abstract:

The study of the development of anti-cancer drugs and preclinical efficacy tests has until today encountered a major problem identified as lack of reliable in vitro tumour models which are able to reflect in vivo tumour conditions. These models provide a clear basis for understanding tumour development processes, assisting in the selection of agents from various chemicals and testing the efficacy of drugs. There are two important characteristics for an in vitro tumour model, i.e. tumour-like ...
