Race, Economic Position Impact Women’s Vulnerability To Breast Cancer, But They Are Not Often Considered In Breast Cancer Research, Commentary Says.

Aunt Minnie (6/28) reports, “Social factors such as race and economic position influence women’s vulnerability to breast cancer, but they are rarely considered in breast cancer research, according to a commentary published in...Cancer Causes and Control.” Aunt Minnie adds, “Not enough is being done to understand how race, income level, and other social factors contribute to cancer susceptibility, wrote a team led by Lorraine Dean, ScD.” The authors “highlighted a 2014 review of more than 20 years of U.S. National Cancer Institute (NCI) clinical trials that found only 20% of randomized controlled studies reported results that took race and ethnicity into account.”

HealthImaging (6/28, O'Connor) also covers the story.
