Recent studies have suggested that insulin-like growth factors (IGFs) and insulin-like growth factor binding proteins (IGFBPs) may be implicated in the development and progression of breast cancer. Prostate-specific antigen (PSA), a serine protease, may play a role in the regulation of IGFs' function through cleavage of IGFBP-3, resulting in release of(More)
The aim of this study was to determine the concentration and to evaluate the prognostic value of pepsinogen C (PepC) in breast cancer patients. PepC is an aspartic proteinase that is involved in the digestion of proteins in the stomach and is also synthesized by a subset of human breast tumors. PepC concentrations were measured with a highly sensitive(More)
We describe a new "sandwich"-type non-isotopic immunoassay for human somatotropin (GH, growth hormone) in serum. In the assay, GH is captured by a monoclonal antibody immobilized in a white microtiter well and simultaneously reacted with a second biotinylated monoclonal antibody. The degree of binding of biotinylated antibody, which increases with(More)
