European searchable tumour cell line database (ESTDAB)

Objective

ESTDAB will bring together five existing European infrastructures and by coordinating their disparate skills and resources will offer a unique resource to the international cancer research community, namely a searchable data base of immunologically characterised tumour cell lines, where possible together with normal cells from the same patients. Cells will be quality-controlled, banked and shipped to qualified investigators (the "users"). A searchable database will be developed, derived from programs currently used by the world's largest centre (an ESTDAB partner) for HLA matching of bone marrow donors to recipients. The database and search program will include many immunological parameters in addition to full HLA typing and surface expression (tumour antigen and accessory/adhesion molecule expression, cytokine secretion etc.); it will offer users such multi-parameter searching for the first time in any cell bank.
