    The Neuroendocrine Unit at Massachusetts General Hospital is seeking women, ages 30-50, with low body weight and low bone density. We are studying the use of hormones as a treatment for bone loss in women with anorexia nervosa.

    The study includes a screening visit, a baseline visit, and two additional outpatient visits, and four phone check-ins over the course of six months.

    Research study participants receive physical examinations, nutritional analyses, hormonal evaluations, blood tests, and bone density scans. Participants will administer the hormones themselves via a patch that sticks to their skin. There is no cost for participation in the study, and participants will receive up to $450 in compensation. Parking and/or public transportation costs will be reimbursed for each visit to MGH.

    For more information and to find out if you’re eligible to participate, please contact Sai Polineni at 617-724-5406 or You may also fill out our confidential online screening questionnaire at
