Ovarian Carcinoma Cells (OCC)

SK-OV-3;NIH:OVCAR-3;HO-8910

Ovarian cancer is a cancer that forms in an ovary. It results in abnormal cells that have the ability to invade or spread to other parts of the body. 

SK-OV-3, NIH:OVCAR-3 and HO-8910 are the ovarian carcinoma cell lines derived from human ovarian tumor. Studies were carried out to determine whether HLA class I or class II expression on ovarian tumor cells and lymphocytic infiltration of the epithelial ovarian carcinoma (EOC) tissues were responsible for the ability to expand tumor-infiltrating lymphocytes (TIL) in vitro in low concentrations of recombinant interleukin-2.
