With the use of defined or partially defined media, most human lung cancers can be successfully cultured. The cultures retain the morphologic, biochemical, and aneuploid properties of the tumors from which they were derived. Thus, short-term or established cell lines are valuable models for indepth study of the biology of human lung cancer.
