The effects of continuous 14 day infusion of recombinant human IGF-I (104 or 260 micrograms/day) or IGF-II (104, 260 or 650 micrograms/day) via s.c. implanted osmotic pumps were compared in young female rats in order to establish the relative efficacies of these two growth factors. Significant increase in body weight gain and feed conversion efficiency were achieved by 260 micrograms/day of IGF-I or 650 micrograms/day of IGF-II. These treatments were associated with increased nitrogen retention… CONTINUE READING
