Overall Survival of Black and White Men with Metastatic Castration-Resistant Prostate Cancer (mCRPC): A 20-Year Retrospective Analysis in the Largest Healthcare Trust in England - Full Text Article
Background: Prostate cancer in black men is associated with poorer outcomes than their white counterparts. However, most studies reporting this disparity were conducted in localized prostate cancer and primarily in the United States.
Methods: Data regarding prostate cancer incidence and mortality for East London between 2008 and 2010 were obtained from the UK National Disease Registration Service. We further evaluated survival outcomes of 425 cases of mCRPC in St Bartholomew’s Hospital, East London, between 1997 and 2016, and analyzed whether ethnicity impacted on responses to different treatment types.
