Paper Title: Stat3 is required for ALK-mediated lymphomagenesis and provides a possible therapeutic target

Authors: Roberto Chiarle et al.

Journal: Nature Medicine, June 2005.

The authors show by gene targeting that Stat3 is required for the transformation of mouse embryonic fibroblasts in vitro, for the development of B-cell lymphoma in transgenic mice and for the growth and survival of both human and mouse NPM-ALK–transformed B and T cells.

Pharmacological ablation of Stat3 represents a new candidate approach for the treatment of human lymphoma.
