- adj. nontumoral
Sorry, no etymologies found.
There are circumstances in which nontumor cells tolerate aneuploidy just fine, but, in most cases, healthy cells keep a tight check on chromosome number.
As a doctoral student at Oxford University, Marshall worked with Henry Harris, a pioneer of cell hybridization techniques, who was fusing tumor cells with nontumor cells to see what the union would beget.
