Primary Outcome Measures:
  • BMD [ Time Frame: 0 months ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Bone markers [ Time Frame: 0 months ]

Biospecimen Retention:   Samples With DNA
Two (10 ml) blood samples

Enrollment: 12
Study Start Date: November 2008
Study Completion Date: December 2016
Primary Completion Date: December 2016 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)

Detailed Description:
The goal of this project is to develop a registry of research subjects with OP, with a risk of developing OP, and healthy controls. DXA scans will be performed on willing individuals at the spine, hips, and forearms and possibly the legs and heels in order to determine BMD. Subjects will also be asked to provide two (10 ml) blood samples, which may be used to analyze Vitamin D levels and/or other bone markers. By participating in the registry, subjects will be considered for current and future clinical research studies.
