IGF1 and IGFBP3 tagging polymorphisms are associated with circulating levels of IGF1, IGFBP3 and risk of breast cancer.

Abstract

Experimental and observational studies in humans and animals suggest that insulin-like growth factor 1 (IGF1) and its principal binding protein, IGFBP3, may influence breast cancer susceptibility. We have examined the association of nine and four single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in the IGF1 gene and in the IGFBP3 genes, respectively, with circulating… (More)
