The word hundred, as well as thousand, million, etc, often takes a plural form. We may say hundreds, or many hundreds, meaning individual objects or units, but with an ordinal numeral adjective in constructions like five hundreds, or eight hundreds, it is usually intended to consider each hundred as a separate aggregate; as, ten hundreds are one thousand.

An Overview of Embryonic Stem Cells

... 20 years. Specially, ES cells can be used to reconstitute early mouse embryos, forming the basis of genome manipulation technology used to produce hundreds of ‘knock out’ and ‘knock in’ transgenic animals for the investigation of gene expression and regulation in vivo. Many efforts have also been ...
