Henrietta Lacks was an African-American woman who was the unwitting source of cells which were cultured by George Otto Gey to create the first known human immortal cell line for medical research. This is now known as the HeLa cell line.
These cells line the Choroid Plexus, a layer of tissue that lines the inside of the ventricles of the nervous system. The swollen tips of these cells secrete the cerebrospinal fluid which bathes the brain in glucose and proteins, and prevents it from.
Due to dwindling capacity for existing aborted fetal cell lines to self-replicate, scientists in China have developed a new aborted fetal cell line, WALVAX 2 that will be used for viral vaccine production.
