Finding genetic variations common in black women could improve breast cancer outcomes, reduce recurrence

Finding genetic variations common in black women could improve breast cancer outcomes, reduce recurrence

UNC Lineberger researchers Charles M. Perou, PhD, Katherine Hoadley, PhD, and Melissa Troester, PhD, co-authored a large, multi-institutional study designed to understand a gap in mortality for black and white women with breast cancer by beginning to unravel the germline genetic variations and tumor biological differences. This is the first “ancestry-based comprehensive analysis of multiple platforms of genomic and proteomic data of its kind,” the authors note.
