I’m uploading several early papers relating to cell culture assays with cell death endpoints, which are not otherwise available in electronic format via the Internet.

Early published studies relating to cell culture assays with cell death endpoints: Not otherwise electronically availableMonday, May 27th, 2013
I am interested in the status of culturing tumor cells to refine chemotherapy from an investment/legal perspective. I have a few questions:
1. I do not see any entries on this site since 2010. Is the site still active?
2. Larry states that no money is to be made by labs that could or would perform the lab work. On what basis is this statement made?
3. Has the FDA moved to regulate such labs to date and if not what seems to be the likely outcome on this question?
4. How is it possible that patients who want these tests could not pay to make them available?
5. In several cases I have witnessed friends fighting dancer and engaging in chemotherapy and I have asked how the selection of chemotherapeutic agents is made. Most recently the response was they just try some and hope they work. I have only a limited scientific background, but have a good education in business and law. However, I think that I can understand this. I recently took a microbiology class, and in the lab did a Kirby Bauer Assay — the infectious disease equivalent to what is proposed here for cancer.
My understanding is that the Kirby Bauer testing a culture against different antibiotics dates back to the 40s or 50s.
6. Sorry this a bit long winded but I may have even more as follow up.
