Objective: Epidemiologic studies suggest that subjects with elevated plasma concentrations of IGF-I are at increased risk of developing cancer. The objective of our study was to assess whether cancer risk factors such as lack of physical activity, obesity, and central body fat distribution are associated with plasma levels of IGF-I and related proteins (i.e. IGF binding proteins 1–3 and C-peptide). Methods: A cross-sectional study was conducted in a population of 225 premenopausal women, aged… CONTINUE READING
