    ABSTRACT: Background: The Pathobiology of Prediabetes in a Biracial Cohort (POP-ABC) study is a prospective evaluation of the natural history impaired glucose regulation. Design and methods: The eligibility requirements include age 18-65 yr, history of type 2 diabetes in one or both parents, normal fasting plasma glucose (FPG) or normal glucose tolerance, and African-American or Caucasian status. Participants underwent assessments (including dietary and exercise behavior, clinical examination, glucose tolerance, insulin sensitivity, β-cell function, body composition, energy expenditure) during 2.25-5.5 yr of quarterly follow-up. The primary outcome is the occurrence of prediabetes. Baseline data are presented for the 376 enrolled participants. The cohort was also compared with National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey 2007/2008 participants meeting the age and glycemic criteria for the POP-ABC study. Results: The POP-ABC cohort [mean (±SD) age was 44.2 ± 10.6 yr] was 57.7% African-Americans, 42.3% Caucasians, and 70.7% females; 86% had one parent with diabetes and 14% had both parents affected. Although greater than 70% of the cohort were employed and 75% had more than 13 yr of education, more African-Americans reported incomes less than $20,000 and fewer reported incomes more than $75,000 compared with Caucasians. Compared with Caucasians, African-Americans had a higher body mass index (31.3 ± 7.8 vs. 28.8 ± 7.8 kg/m(2), P = 0.001), a lower FPG (90.0 ± 7.72 vs. 92.2 ± 7.60 mg/dl, P = 0.008), higher glycosylated hemoglobin, lower triglycerides, and similar blood pressure, and homeostasis model assessment of insulin resistance, homeostasis model assessment of β-cell function, high-density lipoprotein, and low-density lipoprotein cholesterol levels. Compared with a cross-section of U.S. subjects (National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey 2007/2008) with normal FPG and normal glucose tolerance, participants in the POP-ABC study had similar lipid profile but were more educated and had higher body mass index, glycosylated hemoglobin, and blood pressure. Conclusions: The POP-ABC study has successfully enrolled healthy African-American and Caucasian adults with parental type 2 diabetes mellitus. The study will generate novel data on incidence rates and predictors of prediabetes, and clarify the role of race/ethnicity on early dysglycemia.

    ABSTRACT: To investigate the racial/ethnic disparities in hemoglobin A1c levels among nondiabetic persons with similar parental history of type 2 diabetes mellitus. We studied a community-based sample of adult offspring of parents with type 2 diabetes mellitus. Measurements included anthropometry, hematology assessments, serial fasting plasma glucose, oral glucose tolerance testing, plasma insulin, hemoglobin A1c, insulin sensitivity, and β-cell function, using a homeostasis model assessment. The study included 302 participants (135 white, 167 black). Compared with white participants, black participants had lower fasting plasma glucose levels (91.9 ± 0.51 mg/dL vs 93.6 ± 0.50 mg/dL, P = .015), lower area under the curve of plasma glucose during oral glucose tolerance testing (P = <.001), higher body mass index (31.1 ± 0.61 kg/m² vs 28.5 ± 0.57 kg/m², P = <.001), and similar insulin sensitivity and β-cell function. Hemoglobin A1c was higher in black participants than in white participants (5.68 ± 0.033% vs 5.45 ± 0.028%, P<.001). The absolute black-white difference in hemoglobin A1c level of approximately 0.22% persisted after adjusting for age, hemoglobin, hematocrit, body mass index, waist circumference, fasting plasma glucose, glucose area under the curve, and other covariates. Among healthy offspring of parents with type 2 diabetes mellitus in this study, African American participants had higher hemoglobin A1c levels than white participants after adjusting for age, adiposity, blood glucose, and known variables. Thus, plasma glucose level is more valid than hemoglobin A1c for diagnosing prediabetes or diabetes in black persons.

    ABSTRACT: In contrast to the widely reported ethnic differences in prevalence, the incidence of type 2 diabetes was surprisingly similar (approximately 11%) among individuals from the different US ethnic groups in the Diabetes Prevention Program (DPP). Because DPP participants had impaired glucose tolerance (IGT) at baseline, we hypothesized that ethnic disparities are initiated at the pre-IGT stage during evolution of type 2 diabetes. The Pathobiology of Prediabetes in a Biracial Cohort (POP-ABC) is designed to test that hypothesis by tracking the natural history of early dysglycemia in a biracial cohort comprising offspring of parents with type 2 diabetes. The POP-ABC study has an enrollment target of 400 participants (200 African American, 200 Caucasian), aged 18-65 years, with at least 1 parent with type 2 diabetes. All subjects must have normal fasting glucose and/ or normal glucose tolerance, as determined by a 75-gram oral glucose tolerance test (OGTT). Subjects are recruited over approximately 3 years and followed for another 2 years, with repeated metabolic assessments. The latter include OCTT, body composition, indirect calorimetry, euglycemic clamp, beta cell function, and biochemistries. Repository specimens (DNA, RNA and proteome) are obtained for future studies. The primary outcome is the occurrence of prediabetes (ICT and/or impaired fasting glucose). The sample size provides 85% power to detect a hazard ratio of 1.75 between Black and White offspring in the primary outcome (alpha = .05). Secondary endpoints include behavioral, biochemical and socioeconomic predictors of dysglycemia. The POP-ABC study will elucidate the nosogeny of ethnic disparities in glucose dysregulation.
