✯ HeLa cells are a continuously cultured cell line of human cancer cells, which are immortal & thrive in the laboratory. They are widely used in biological and medical research. The spherical cell at centre is undergoing apoptosis (programmed cell death). Apoptosis occurs when a cell becomes old or damaged. Blebs (vesicles) called apoptotic bodies form on its surface, which prevent toxic or immunogenic substances from leaking when it is phagocytosed (engulfed and digested) by specialist…
In 2013 scientists reported in a paper published in BMC Complementary and Alternative Medicine (A peer-reviewed, open access journal) that A hot-water extract of the leaves of Moringa Oleifera killed up to 97% of human pancreatic cancer cells (Panc-1) after 72 hours in lab tests. Moringa leaf extract inhibited the growth of all pancreatic cell lines tested.
The Cancer Cell Line Encyclopedia (CCLE) provides public access to genomic data, analysis and visualization for about 1000 cell lines. CCLE is authored by scientists at the Broad Institute, Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, the Genomics Institute of the Novartis Foundation, and the Novartis Institutes for Biomedical Research.

HeLa-IV.jpg -A HeLa cell , also Hela or hela cell, is a cell type in an immortal cell line used in scientific research. It is the oldest and most commonly used human cell line. The line was derived from cervical cancer cells taken on February 8, 1951 from Henrietta Lacks, a patient who died of her cancer on October 4, 1951. The cell line was found to be remarkably durable and prolific which warrants its extensive use in scientific research.

Researchers from the Sound Choice Pharmaceutical Institute recently published a study showing a correlation with the introduction of human fetal cell lines used as contaminants in childhood vaccines, and the rapid rise of autism. Sound Choice Pharmaceutical Institute is not anti-vaccine. They manufacture what they call “ethical versions” of vaccines that do not contain human fetal cell lines, and use animal cell lines instead.
