Factors influencing delay in breast cancer treatment differ for African-American and white women
Date:7/10/2013

with breast cancer between the ages of 20 and 74, who were enrolled in the CBCS between 2008 and 2010. The CBCS is an ongoing population-based study that recruits women from 44 counties in in North Carolina. "We used information from interviews and questionnaires to collect socioeconomic data for each woman," McGee added. "Larger studies often use area-level information for groups of people [e.g. based on census data] and apply these data to individuals in the study, which may not always be accurate." Clinical and treatment information were obtained by reviewing the medical records for each study participant.

"One of the goals of the CBCS Phase III is to assess five- and ten-year survival for study participants once recruitment ends in 2014. Follow-up interviews for study participants will continue for up to five years after diagnosis, therefore not only will we be able to evaluate the impact of a treatment delay of more than 30 days on survival, but also the impact of barriers to treatment and healthcare access," said McGee.
