Several epidemiological studies have found that high levels of plasma insulin-like growth factor (IGF)-I and low levels of IGF-binding protein (IGFBP)-3 are related to an increased risk of colorectal cancer or late-stage adenomas. We examined the relation of body mass index, fasting and 2-h postload plasma glucose levels and plasma concentrations of IGF-I and IGFBP-3 to colorectal adenomas in middle-aged Japanese men. The study subjects comprised 157 cases of histologically diagnosed colorectal… CONTINUE READING
