Racial differences in nitrogen content of nails among adolescents



American Journal of Clinical Nutrition 30(4): 496-498

PMID: 851076

The study was undertaken to know if standards for nail N content could be established for adolescents which could then be used in the assessment of protein nutritional status. Nail clippings were obtained from 118 economically indigent urban black, 10 black and 39 white subjects from wealthy suburban communities in the New York area, and 10 poor white-Indian adolescents residing in a barrio in Lima, Peru. Nail samples were taken for protein content estimation by the micro-Kjeldahl technique.
