• The Role of PTH in Low Bone Mass in Anorexia Nervosa
Are you a woman who has low body weight? Do you have anorexia nervosa?

The Neuroendocrine Unit at Massachusetts General Hospital is seeking
women with anorexia nervosa who are 30-70 years old and who do not take
any hormones for a research study. We are studying the use of a natural
hormone as a treatment for bone loss.

The study includes eight outpatient visits over the course of six

Participants receive physical examinations, nutritional analyses,
hormonal evaluations, blood tests, and measurements of bone density.
Either a natural hormone or a placebo (contains no active ingredients)
will be administered in the form of a daily injection. There is no cost for participation in the study, and participants will receive up to $625 compensation. Remuneration is not provided for the screening visit; however, parking and/or public transportation costs will be reimbursed for each visit to MGH.
