Insulin-like growth factors (IGFs) are mitogens for numerous types of cells including cancer cells. The aim of this work was to analyze some of the components of the IGF system to assess which could be potential clinical biomarkers for monitoring patients diagnosed with liver cancer. Compared to healthy persons, patients with liver cancer had a lower concentration of IGF-I and a higher concentration of IGFBP-1, whereas the concentrations of IGF-II and IGFBP-3 remained unchanged. The IGF-I:IGFBP… CONTINUE READING
