  1. Black-White differences in serum sex hormones and bone mineral density.

    Article - En anglais

    To determine if differences in serum sex hormones contribute to racial differences in bone mass, independent of obesity, the authors compared bone mass and sex steroid hormone levels in 273 white women and 86 black women aged 65 years or older.

    This study was ancillary to the Study of Osteoporotic Fractures.

    Black women were recruited at two clinical centers in Baltimore, Maryland, and the Monongahela Valley, near Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

    An age-stratified random sample of white women was chosen from the Pittsburgh clinic.

    Demographic and historical information and anthropometric measurements were obtained from a clinic questionnaire, interview, and examination.
