Gene Variant Doubles Risk of Prostate Cancer in Black Men
Date:11/2/2007

expert thinks this study adds to an understanding of prostate cancer but has no immediate clinical application.

"It is encouraging that we are starting to identity some of these regions on the human genome that may be associated with an increased risk for prostate cancer," said Dr. Durado Brooks, director of prostate and colorectal cancer at the American Cancer Society. However, "it is unlikely that this is the only one," he added.

This variant doesn't seem to be associated with the aggressiveness of the disease, Brooks said. "It's important, but we are still a long way from having any strong clinical applicability from these findings," he said.
