Single nucleotide polymorphisms and inherited risk of chronic lymphocytic leukemia among African Americans.

Abstract

The incidence of chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) is significantly lower in African Americans than whites, but overall survival is inferior. The biologic basis for these observations remains unexplored. We hypothesized that germline genetic predispositions differ between African Americans and whites with CLL and yield inferior clinical outcomes among… (More)
