Experts discuss addition of West-African ancestry to risk calculator for prostate cancer

“We actually found that our calculator held up pretty well at different risk thresholds, especially when compared to the PCPT in terms of maintaining the same number of missed cancers, but cutting the number of biopsies that were not necessary nearly in half,” says Neil Mistry, MD, MPH.

In this video, Neil Mistry, MD, MPH, and Adam B. Murphy, MD, MBA, MSCI, discuss the abstract, “West-African ancestry can aid prediction of high-grade prostate cancer in Black-tailored risk calculator,” which was presented at the North Central Section of the AUA Annual Meeting in Chicago, Illinois. Mistry is a urology resident and Murphy is an assistant professor of urology and preventive medicine (cancer epidemiology and prevention) at Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine in Chicago.
