The STAT gene family and cancer progression in glioma

Takeaway

  • Using expression of STAT gene family members, a new risk score model was developed to more accurately predict the prognosis of patients with glioma.

Why this matters

  • Glioma is one of the most common cancers and a leading cause of cancer-related death.

  • Understanding the molecular mechanism behind tumorigenesis of glioma is essential to improving outcomes, by revealing novel prognostic biomarkers and potential therapeutic targets.
