st: Regular expressions with locals

Hello!  I have in a local macro a list of variables such as _Iphstat_1
from xi: logistic.  I would like to remove the _I from the beginning
and the _# from the end and create a new local with simply a string
"phstat = 1".

How might I go about doing this?

I realize this can be done with various string functions, but I'm
curious about the regex commands.
