Organoid cultures recapitulated the adenocarcinoma features, and IHC showed the cells were diffusely positive for AR and pan-cytokeratin, matching the tumor sample. When grafted into the renal capsule of SCID mice, the tumors were histologically indistinguishable from the metastatic lesion and stained diffusely positive for pan-cytokeratin and AR. The established organoid line exhibits a double time of 3 days.
MSK-PCa2 is derived from patient who presented with metastatic adenocarcinoma. He had a short-term response to ADT for 6-months and developed an expanding hip metastasis requiring arthroplasy.
