Malignant astrocytic tumor progression potentiated by JAK-mediated recruitment of myeloid cells.

While the tumor microenvironment has been known to play an integral role in tumor progression, the function of non-resident bone marrow-derived cells (BMDCs) remains to be determined in neurological tumors. Here we identified the contribution of BMDC recruitment in mediating malignant transformation from low- to high-grade gliomas.
