Abstract

This study showed that a French Black population is the most likely of those studied to have unfavourable PCa characteristics at the time of RP. Albeit in a limited series, we show for the first time that Northern Africans have significantly better features in this regard than Caucasians and Blacks. Although Northern Africans did not have a better pathological stage outcome, they did have a more favourable Gleason score.
