African American men get more prostate cancer and more lethal forms of prostate cancer than men of other ethnicities. We  assume that a combination of genetic differences, lifestyle, nutritional and medical access were the reasons for this disparity. Understanding the role of these different possible contributors is important if we are to be able to better understand this disparity.  Understanding this disparity s important to being able to deliver effective interventions. In a study, “A Novel Genomic Alteration of LSAMP Associates with Aggressive Prostate Cancer in African American Men,”  published in EBioMedicine, researchers identified some distinct genomic variations that might [...]
