A human middle ear epithelial cell line (HMEEC-1) was established using human papillomavirus E6/E7 genes. HMEEC-1 has remained morphologically and phenotypically stable, even after 50 passages. The cells are anchorage-dependent and nontumorigenic when injected into nude mice. This cell line thus provides a new tool for the study of normal cell biology and the pathological processes associated with the epithelial cells of the middle ear in otitis media. HMEEC-1 will also be useful in the search for new drugs and biological agents for the treatment of otitis media.
