No racial disparity in blood and marrow transplant referrals, study shows

8 mayo 2015

No racial or ethnic disparities have been found among patients who participated in a Blood and Marrow Transplantation (BMT) Program. The percentage of African Americans who were referred for transplant was 7%, and the referral rate for other minority races/ethnicities was 2.5%. These proportions directly compare to the general Western New York population, which is comprised of 8% African Americans and 2% other racial/ethnic minorities.
