The insulin-like growth factor (IGF) system has been shown to regulate prostate cancer cell growth in vitro and, possibly, in vivo. In this study we examined RNA expression of IGF ligands and their receptors in 23 paired benign and neoplastic prostate tissues. In addition to comparing gene expression of IGF ligands and receptors between benign and… CONTINUE READING
