Unexpected role of STAT3 as tumor suppressor in lung cancer

"The study identifies the STAT3 oncogene as potent tumor suppressor in lung cancer patients with a smoking history. This unexpected result has significant therapeutic implications as drugs inhibiting JAK/STAT3 in lung cancer are currently in development. The clinical use of such inhibitors thus needs to be very carefully evaluated", CCS co-authors Wolfgang Gruber, Fritz Aberger and Lukas Kenner say.
