- This study is directly relevant for women with breast cancer particularly those of Nigerian descent or African American women who may be of Nigerian descent.
- This is the first study examining genetic testing among women with breast cancer unselected for family history in the Nigerian population.
Scientific Strength: High
- This is a case-control study looking at NIgerian women with breast cancer and Nigerian women without breast cancer as controls.
- Limitation of this study include that hormone receptor status was unknown for the majority of participants. This limited the ability of researchers to characterize triple negative breast cancer in this population.
