Abstract

The relationship between osteocalcin and atherosclerosis remains unclear. This might be due to different degrees of confounding from factors that are associated with serum osteocalcin level, such as metabolic-related variables. This study aimed to investigate the relationship between serum osteocalcin level and carotid intima-media thickness (C-IMT) in a metabolically healthy population. A total of 476 subjects with normal values for weight, glucose tolerance, blood pressure, and lipids (age range, 20-75 years; 155 men, 201 premenopausal women, 120 postmenopausal women) from the Shanghai Obesity Study were recruited for this cross-sectional study. Subjects with a history of cardiovascular disease or carotid plaque were excluded. C-IMT was measured by ultrasonography. Serum osteocalcin level was assessed by an electrochemiluminescence immunoassay. Median C-IMT in the entire study population was 0.55 mm with an interquartile range of 0.50-0.60 mm. C-IMT in premenopausal women was significantly lower than that in men and postmenopausal women (all P < 0.001). The median (interquartile range) of serum osteocalcin level in the entire population was 17.02 (13.31-21.47) ng/mL. Serum osteocalcin level in postmenopausal women was significantly higher than that in men and premenopausal women (all P < 0.001), while the level of serum osteocalcin in men was also significantly higher than that in premenopausal women (P < 0.001). No significant correlation was found between C-IMT and serum osteocalcin level in either men or postmenopausal women. There was a significant, inverse correlations between C-IMT and serum osteocalcin level in premenopausal women after adjustment of age, but this association was eliminated after adjustment for other confounding factors. Serum osteocalcin level was not independently associated with C-IMT in a metabolically healthy Chinese population.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 1. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 16 June 2015.
All research outputs
#4,357,081
of 5,234,318 outputs
Outputs from Cardiovascular Diabetology
#376
of 452 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#139,387
of 171,423 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Cardiovascular Diabetology
#28
of 34 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 5,234,318 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 1st percentile – i.e., 1% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 452 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 2.8. This one is in the 1st percentile – i.e., 1% of its peers scored the same or lower than it.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 171,423 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one is in the 1st percentile – i.e., 1% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
We're also able to compare this research output to 34 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one is in the 1st percentile – i.e., 1% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
