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.
