Diet, Genetic Variation and Prostate Cancer Among African Americans
This is a single center pilot study to asses the feasibility of conducting a larger population-based study. It is an investigator-initiated study funded yb the UC Davis Cancer Center's Development Award Program. The hypothesis is that the percent african ancestry in an individual may determine their prognosis if diagnosed with prostate cancer.
