In a recent study, caution should be applied when interpreting tumor expression we explored the prevalence of parainflammation in human data. We also address the connection between parainflamma-cancer and determined its relationship to certain molecular and tion and prevalence of p53 mutations in specific types of clinical parameters affecting treatment and prognosis.

We flammation can be identified from a 40-gene signature and is suggest that parainflammation may serve as a novel biomarker found in both carcinoma cell lines and a variety of primary for screening patients who may particularly benefit from NSAID tumors, independently of tumor microenvironment. Here, we treatment.
