Circulating concentrations of insulin-like growth factor-1 in dogs with naturally occurring mitral regurgitation.

Abstract

Insulin-like growth factor-1 (IGF-1), which mediates most effects of growth hormone, has effects on cardiac mass and function, and plays an important role in the regulation of vascular tone. In humans, an inverse relationship between degree of heart failure (HF) and circulating IGF-1 concentrations has been found in several studies. In dogs with HF, few… (More)
