There are greater differences in the incidence rates than in the mortality rates by geography. There are also observed trends specific to the incidence and mortality across geography or race within geographic areas, suggesting the presence of ascertainment bias, which could be contributing to these findings.  Before concluding Dr. Logothetis shares recommendations for future directions including. the role of the relationship between the gene and the environment and its effect on prostate cancer outcomes, the opportunity to study the “exo-environment”, and lastly, controlling health care and standardizing our reporting patterns.
