Hutchinson Center receives $10.24 million from NIH for Latina breast cancer research
Date:5/3/2010

SEATTLE The National Institutes of Health has awarded $10.24 million to Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center to lead a five-year study that aims to understand and prevent breast cancer disparities in Hispanic women.

Breast cancer is the most common cancer among U.S. Hispanic women. While the incidence of the disease among Latinas is lower than that of non-Hispanic white women (83.5 per 100,000 women versus 147.3 per 100,000 women), as they adopt the practices of mainstream U.S. culture, their risk for breast cancer increases.

"Once Latinas come to live in this country, within a generation their risk of breast cancer increases tremendously and approaches that of non-Hispanic whites, so we think something about their lifestyle before they immigrate to the U.S. protects them. It is important to find out what this is so that we can encourage Latinas to make behavioral decisions that foster a protective effect against breast cancer," Thompson said.

Latinas also have lower five-year survival rates for the di
