Current status of organoid culture in urological malignancy.

Ryan Tsz-Hei Tse, Hongda Zhao, Christine Yim-Ping Wong, Peter Ka-Fung Chiu, Jeremy Yuen-Chun Teoh, Chi-Fai Ng,

Urological cancers are common malignancies worldwide. Several conventional models, for example, two-dimensional cell culture and animal models have been used for decades to study tumor genetics. Nonetheless, these methods have limitations in reflecting the real tumor microenvironment in vivo, thereby hindering the development of anti-cancer therapeutic agents. Recently, three-dimensional culture models ... Read more >>
