The mass culture of human diploid fibroblasts in packed beds of glass beads

Developments in Biological Standardization
C Burbidge


A system is described in which human diploid fibroblasts or other anchorage dependent cells may be conveniently cultured. The method would appear to offer a solution to the problem of the mass culture of such cells for the purpose of producing biologicals such as interferon.

Adhesion Molecules in Health and Disease

Cell adhesion molecules are a subset of cell adhesion proteins located on the cell surface involved in binding with other cells or with the extracellular matrix in the process called cell adhesion. In essence, cell adhesion molecules help cells stick to each other and to their surroundings. Cell adhesion is a crucial component in maintaining tissue structure and function.
