Triple-negative breast cancer in African-American women: disparities versus biology : Nature Reviews Cancer : Nature Publishing Group

Triple-negative breast cancer in African-American women: disparities versus biology : Nature Reviews Cancer : Nature Publishing Group | BC in young women | Scoop.it
Abstract

Triple-negative breast cancer (TNBC) is an aggressive breast cancer subtype that disproportionately affects BRCA1 mutation carriers and young women of African origin. There is evidence that African-American women with TNBC have worse clinical outcomes than women of European descent. However, it is unclear whether survival differences persist after adjusting for disparities in access to health-care treatment, co-morbid disease and income. It remains controversial whether TNBC in African-American women is a molecularly distinct disease or whether African-American women have a higher incidence of aggressive biology driven by disparities: there is evidence in support of both. Understanding the relative contributions of biology and disparities is essential for improving the poor survival rate of African-American women with TNBC.
