According to the American Cancer Society, over 28,500
deaths in 2013 were due to cancers
of the female reproductive system.
These cancers can be divided into
cervical, endometrial, and ovarian. ATCC houses representatives of gynecological cancers from human and animal donors. We have also organized selected cell lines into Gynecological Cancer Cell Panels, to support the high-throughput screening of chemotherapeutics. In addition, to support the researcher’s need for physiological controls for tumor cells ATCC provides human primary and hTERT-immortalized cells.
The cervix is sensitive to infection by human
papillomaviruses (HPV), which can lead to cellular
alterations resulting in cancer. For example, HeLa, the first
cell line to successfully be cultured continuously, is positive
for HPV. ATCC has 26 cervical cell lines to support your
research needs; explore the collection today!

Endometrial cancers arise from the innermost
layer of the uterus. These cancers are the most commonly
diagnosed among reproductive cancers. While this cancer
is usually detected and treated early, it has been correlated
with taking hormone therapy for breast cancer. Browse our
collection of human and bovine uterine cells.

Because ovarian cancer is notoriously difficult to detect, it
stands highest in mortality among cancers of the female
reproductive system. To
help researchers investigate this killer, ATCC provides
ovarian cell lines, representing the normal and diseased
tissues of multiple species.
