In the past, the transcription factor ST AT1 was considered as a tumor suppressor. We have recently discovered that ST AT1 in malignant cells favors breast cancer progression as it stimulates immunosuppressive effects mediated by myeloidderived suppressor cells (MDSCs). Inhibiting ST AT1 activity offers a promising therapeutic approach against advanced breast cancer.
