The Developmental Therapeutics Program (DTP) within NCI's Division of Cancer Treatment and Diagnostics (DCTD), has maintained a low temperature repository of transplantable in vivo-derived tumors and in vitro-established tumor cell lines from various species. This Tumor Repository, located at the National Cancer Institute in Frederick serves as a resource for viable, pathogen-screened experimental tumor lines, many of which are not available elsewhere. The Repository makes these materials available to qualified investigators as a service to the cancer research community.

Please find the materials the DCTD Tumor Repository distributes here: DCTD Tumor Repository Catalog

Tumors are categorized by species: canine, guinea pig, hamster, human, mouse, rabbit, and rat. Within each animal species, the list is in alphabetical order by tumor designation.
