Impact of Insulin-Like Growth Factor Receptor-I Function on Angiogenesis, Growth, and Metastasis of Colon Cancer


Insulin-like growth factors and their principal receptor, IGF-I receptor (IGF-IR), are frequently expressed in human colon cancers and play a role in preventing apoptosis, enhancing cell proliferation, and inducing expression of vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF). The role of IGF-IR in regulating angiogenesis and metastases of human colon cancer has… (More)
