Study compares genomic profiling in patients with prostate cancer of African, European ancestry

Video

“Patients of African ancestry were actually less likely to receive comprehensive genomic profiling earlier in their treatment course than patients of European ancestry, and…patients of African ancestry [were] less likely to be treated in clinical trials,” says Jessica Lee, MS.

In a video filmed during the 2021 ASCO Annual Meeting, Jessica Lee, MS, of Foundation Medicine, discusses the abstract, “Ancestral characterization of the genomic landscape, comprehensive genomic profiling utilization, and treatment patterns may inform disparities in advanced prostate cancer: A large-scale analysis,” for which she served as a study author.
