Drug-induced inhibition of phosphorylation of STAT5 overrides drug resistance in neoplastic mast cells

Systemic mastocytosis (SM) is a mast cell (MC) neoplasm with complex pathology and a variable clinical course. In aggressive SM (ASM) and MC leukemia (MCL), responses to conventional drugs are poor and the prognosis is dismal.
