The NCI-H146 cell line was derived by A.F. Gazdar and associates in 1979 from a bone marrow metastasis of a patient with small cell cancer of the lung. The bone marrow specimen was taken prior to therapy.
The cells form transplantable tumors which histologically resemble tumor cells from the original biopsy specimen.
