Molecular profiles of African American men with localized prostate cancer

Project: Research project

Project Details

Description

Men of African descent are more likely to be diagnosed with and die from prostate cancer compared to their White counterparts. While differences in health care access partially explains these outcome disparities, epidemiological and molecular studies suggest prostate cancer may differ biologically by race. While the taxonomy of primary prostate cancer has been previously described for a cohort of largely White men, this study proposes to characterize the molecular subtypes of primary prostate cancer in a large cohort of African American men who underwent radical prostatectomy and correlate those subtypes with oncologic outcomes
