Brief Summary:
The SCCOR Minorities study will recruit minority participants from the COPDGene cohort, in whom the University of Pittsburgh has already obtained baseline and five year data, in order to enhance bone mineral density and vascular function data collection from minority smokers. Dual X-ray absorptiometry (DXA) scans will be obtained to measure bone mineral density. Non-invasive vascular studies will be performed to measure endothelial function. Questionnaires regarding symptoms and activity levels will be administered and a blood sample will be obtained in participants in which blood samples are not already available from the COPDGene study visits.

Condition or disease
Pulmonary Disease, Chronic Obstructive Emphysema

Study Type : Observational
Estimated Enrollment : 96 participants
Observational Model: Cohort
Time Perspective: Cross-Sectional
Study Start Date : August 2016
Estimated Primary Completion Date : August 2018
Estimated Study Completion Date : August 2018



Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Dual Xray Absorptiometry measurement of lumbar spine and hip bone mineral density. [ Time Frame: As this is a cross-sectional collection of data, the outcome will be measured once at the first and only study visit. ]

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Measurement of carotid artery intimal thickness with ultrasound [ Time Frame: As this is a cross-sectional collection of data, the outcome will be measured once at the first and only study visit. ]

Biospecimen Retention:   Samples With DNA
blood specimens will be obtained and stored for later analysis, which may include measurement of proteins, RNA expression, DNA.
