Cincinnati myocardial infarction and hormone family study : family resemblance for testosterone in random and MI families.
Familial correlations for total testosterone and free testosterone were examined in both random and nonrandom families participating in the Cincinnati Myocardial Infarction and Hormone Family Study (CIMIH).
The non-random families were ascertained through Caucasian males who had survived a myocardial infarction (MI) prior to age 56 years, while random families were recruited largely through an adolescent boy maturation study.
Eight sex-specific familial correlations were estimated (father-mother, father-son, father-daughter, mother-son, mother-daughter, son-son, daughter-daughter, and son-daughter) for each of the MI and random samples using maximum likelihood methods with appropriate ascertainment correction.
