The conclusion of the abstract is that WP1066, a STAT3 inhibitor recently shown to have novel ability to specifically degrade key cellular proteins involved in cancer proliferation (given the new drug class designation: Degrasyn), is a novel small molecule inhibitor of the head and neck cell proliferation able to induce suppression of cell proliferation, induction of apoptosis, inhibition of STAT3 phosphorylation and nuclear translocation.
In so doing, the three scientists discovered molecular machinery that orchestrates cell proliferation, says molecular biologist Stephen J.
