In brief: MV-4-11

...this is the name of a leukemia cell line used by cancer researchers.
They originally came from a 10 year old boy with acute leukemia and they have the convenient property of being able to grow endlessly in a lab cell culture dish. Cancer researchers might use them for various purposes, such as testing new drugs, before trying them in people.
