The study was published July 17 in the International Journal of Cancer. The disparities in mortality rates are even more pronounced with African-American men experiencing deaths from prostate cancer at a rate that is more than two and half times higher among African-American men compared to Caucasian men (15.3 among Caucasian men, 40.6 among African-American men). More than 164,000 men in the U.S. were diagnosed with prostate cancer in 2018.

"And in particular, we have found that people that have a longer nightly fasting duration, which might imply less late-night eating, have better blood sugar control and a lower risk of cancer recurrence".

Traditionally, androgen deprivation therapy (ADT) is used in patients with advanced prostate cancer and while this therapy is successful in the early stages of treatment, cancer cells can become resistant and the disease can progress to a lethal phase called castration-resistant prostate cancer (CRPC).

Cancer is complex and diet certainly is not the only thing that affects cancer risk.

The results of the study are fairly consistent with previous research, said Catherine Marinac, a research fellow at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute who was not involved in the study.

Investigators in the study will examine possible associations between aggressive disease and exposures to neighborhood/environmental stressors such as discrimination, early-life adversity, and segregation.

Cancer of the breast and prostate are often associated with the activity of various hormones. Once researchers have identified genetic changes associated with aggressive prostate cancer, they will investigate how the social environment interacts with those genetic changes.

"In a city whose African-American population is almost 60%, we are acutely aware of the importance of this research", notes Xiao-Cheng Wu, MD, Professor and Director of the Louisiana Tumor Registry at LSU Health New Orleans School of Public Health. New Jersey State Cancer Registry Director Antoinette Stroup, PhD of Rutgers Cancer Institute of New Jersey along with Karen Pawlish, PhD of the New Jersey Department of Health, are among the nationwide collaborators on the "RESPOND" study being led by the Keck School of Medicine of the University of Southern California (USC).

"No group in the world is hit harder by prostate cancer than men of African descent, and to date, little is known about the biological reasons for these disparities, or the full impact of environmental factors", said Dr. Jonathan Simons, CEO of the Prostate Cancer Foundation.
