Cell Line Origin

Human colon adenocarcinoma

Cell Line Description

Derived from a metastatic tumour in the left supraclavicular region of a 56 year old male with adenocarcinoma of the colon. The cells produce carcino embryonic antigen (CEA).


Human LoVo cell line is part of the three-dimensional (3D) heterotypic spheroid model developed to assess cancer immunotherapy agents in vitro. It has been used to test the in vitro cytotoxic property and anti-proliferative property of C. lechleri stem bark essential oil.
