Abstract

The growth kinetics of 9L (rat glioblastoma cell line) and U118 (human glioblastoma cell line) multicellular tumour spheroids (MTS) have been investigated by non-linear least square fitting of individual growth curves with the Gompertz growth equation and power spectrum analysis of residuals. were not randomly distributed around calculated growth trajectories, one main frequency was found for all analysed MTS growth curves, demonstrating the existence of time-dependent periodic fluctuations of MTS volume dimensions. Similar periodic oscillations of MTS volume dimensions were also observed for MTS generated using cloned 9L cells. However, we found significant differences in the growth kinetics of MTS obtained with cloned cells if compared to the growth kinetics of MTS obtained with polyclonal cells. Our findings demonstrate that the growth patterns of three-dimensional tumour cell cultures are more complex than has been previously predicted using traditional continuous growth models.
