We cultured the extraprostatic tissue devoid of normal prostate glands, and the organoids had squamous features and displayed positive pan-cytokeratin and very low AR staining. The established organoid line exhibits a double time of 5 days.
MSK-PCa6 is developed from a patient who underwent combined ADT and radiotherapy for Gleason 4+3 adenocarcinoma. Seven years after diagnosis, he developed symptomatic local recurrence with low PSA. Salvage prostatectomy showed residual adenocarcinoma with extensive squamous differentiation and invasion into the bladder and rectum.
