Milk contains cell growth factors, but somatomedin-C/insulin-like growth factor I has not previously been identified. Acid-ethanol extracts of fresh human milk samples displaced somatomedin-C tracer from the specific somatomedin-C antiserum Tr4 parallel to standard. In samples obtained between days 1 and 9 postpartum, highest levels [17.6 +/- 10.4 (+/- SD) ng/ml; n = 7) were found in day 1 samples; these fell to stable levels of 6-8 ng/ml over the next several days.
