Caption: Studying mouth cancer in mice, researchers have found a way to predict the aggressiveness of similar tumors in people, an early step toward a diagnostic test that could guide treatment, according to researchers at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis. Ravindra Uppaluri (right) led a team that developed a preliminary diagnostic test that identifies aggressive oral tumors. Michael D. Onken (left) and Ashley E. Winkler are co-authors of the paper.
