African-Americans with blood cancer do not live as long as Caucasians, despite equal care
Date:7/8/2013

val of African American patients persisted when patients were grouped according to factors related to the severity of their disease.

"These findings suggest that while inducing similarly high response rates, standard treatments do not overcome racial differences in outcome among patients with CLL," said Dr. Ferrajoli. She added that a number of questions remain unanswered. For example, do distinct biologic characteristics of African American patients with CLL account for the disparities seen in this study? And will these findings hold in the general population, where the impact of socioeconomic status may be more varied?

In an accompanying editorial, Christopher Flowers, MD, of Emory University in Atlanta, and Barbara Pro, MD, of Thomas Jefferson University in Philadelphia, noted that to adequately study disparities in leukemia, investigators will need to collect specimens and clinical data from patients to examine the potential impact of molecular and biologic markers. "Future studies in CLL can use this work as a cornerstone for investigating racial disparities in this disease," they wrote.
