Mayo researchers develop new laboratory cell lines to study treatment for ATC
Date:8/24/2010

Mayo researchers, led by Dr. Copland, had earlier discovered that RhoB function was missing in ATC cells, as it is in some other cancers. Dr. Smallridge is currently conducting a phase I clinical trial testing an agent that can turn the tumor suppressor function back on.

Because thyroid cancers are uncommon and anaplastic thyroid cancer is exceedingly rare fewer than 600 new ATC cases a year in the U.S. Dr. Smallridge asks every patient having surgery for thyroid cancer at Mayo Clinic for a tumor sample. Other surgeons around the country have sent Marlow tumor samples in her quest to create new cell lines for thyroid cancer.

"This work defines the importance of collaborations across institutions to collect tissues for a very rare cancer," Dr. Copland says.

Using tumor samples from this collaboration, it took two years and many tries to create the four new lines, Marlow says. "These cells are very difficult to grow and to maintain because of their chromosomal instability," she says. Marlow had to derive a new formula for the media that the cells live on in their culture dishes, a recipe that is special for this kind of cancer and which is reproduced in the study publication. The article also identifies multiple genetic and phenotypic tests that will uniquely identify each cell line now and in the future, she says.
