Abstract In the U.S., prostate carcinoma mortality is greatest among African Americans. In North Carolina, the state with the fourth largest population of African Americans, the prostate carcinoma mortality rate is 2.5 times greater among African Americans than among whites and is the highest reported rate for any state in the nation. To explore potential reasons for the racial differential in mortality, a study was undertaken to determine whether differences related to treatment existed between African American and white men who were diagnosed with prostate carcinoma during the period 1994-1995.
