Whats in Vaccines and wtf. is WI-38....

WI-38 is a diploid human cell culture line composed of fibroblasts derived from lung tissue of a three-month-old white (caucasian) female fetus.[1] The cell line, isolated by Leonard Hayflick and Paul Moorhead in the 1960s,[2] has been used extensively in scientific research, with applications ranging from developing important theories in molecular biology to the production of many types of vaccines. .[3] The contributions from this cell line on research has been credited with saving the lives of “millions of people”.[4]


Applications[edit]

WI-38 was invaluable to early researchers, especially those studying virology and immunology, since it was a readily-available cell line of normal human tissue, unlike the HeLa line, which were cancerous cells. Researchers in labs across the globe have since used WI-38 in their discoveries, most notably in the development of vaccines. Over a billion[4] vaccine doses worldwide can be traced to work done on WI-38, covering conditions including measles and rubella.[7]

WI-38 cells are used to produce several vaccines including Adenovirus, MMR, Varicella and Zoster virus. Infected WI-38 cells secrete the virus, and can be cultured in large volumes suitable for commercial production.
