Moffitt Cancer Center Researchers Design Small Molecule to Disrupt Cancer-Causing Protein

“Researchers at Moffitt Cancer Center and colleagues at the University of South Florida have developed a small molecule that inhibits STAT3, a protein that causes cancer. This development could impact the treatment of several tumor types, including breast, lung, prostate and others that depend on STAT3 for survival. The study appeared in the Jan. 15 online issue of Cancer Researcha publication of the American Association for Cancer Research.”
