The growth hormone–insulin-like growth factor (GH–IGF) axis has gained considerable focus over recent years. One cause of this increased interest is due to a correlation of age-related decline in plasma GH/IGF levels with age-related degenerative processes, and it has led to the prescribing of GH replacement therapy by some practitioners. On the other hand, however, research has also focused on the pro-carcinogenic effects of high GH–IGF levels, providing strong impetus for finding regimes that… Expand

TLDR
The findings suggest that OCs could modulate the IGF-system in a way that is highly influenced by gender, age and by chemical or combination of chemicals implicated and should be taken into account in public health decisions. Expand
The Relationship between Dioxin-Like Polychlorobiphenyls and IGF-I Serum Levels in Healthy Adults: Evidence from a Cross-Sectional Study
TLDR
It is suggested that DL-PCBs could be involved in the regulation of the IGF-system in a way possibly influenced by gender, age and BMI, and such circumstances could contribute to explain the development of diseases associated to the IGF system. Expand
miR-709 inhibits GHRP6 induced GH synthesis by targeting PRKCA in pituitary
TLDR
It is confirmed that the second highly expressed pituitary miRNA (miR-709) significantly inhibited the GH synthesis and suppressed the viability of GH3 cells, and the result of GHRP6 attenuated the inhibition of miR-708 on GH expression will provide new molecular mechanism on the regulation of pituitARY GH.

Dietary arginine supplementation altered expression of IGFs and IGF receptors in weaning piglets
TLDR
An important role of arginine in modulation of IGF signal pathway and the involvement of IGF and IGF receptors in the improved growth performance are suggested. Expand
Evaluation of growth hormone and insulin-like growth factor-1 in children during and after therapy for acute lymphoblastic leukemia
TLDR
The higher levels of GH and IGF-1 during active ALL and their reduction after treatment may be helpful in assessing the disease activity and predicting the response to chemotherapy. Expand
Supplementation dietary arginine expression altered of IGF receptors and IGFs in weaning piglets
TLDR
An important role of arginine in modulation of IGF signal pathway and the involvement of IGF and IGF receptors in the improved growth performance are suggested. Expand
The Role and Impacts of Growth Hormones in Maximizing Animal Production- A review
The purpose of the study is to examine the role and impacts of growth hormone in maximizing animal products. Growth hormones are biological stimulants that are found either naturally in the organismExpand
Acute and long-term genotoxicity of deltamethrin to insulin-like growth factors and growth hormone in rainbow trout.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that deltamethrin exposure decreases the expression of IGF-I, IGF-II and GH-I in rainbow trout which might cause undesirable outcomes not only in growth, but also in development and reproduction. Expand
Effects of Dietary Phytoestrogens on Hormones throughout a Human Lifespan: A Review
TLDR
The results of human studies on dietary phytoestrogens are summarized with the aim of assessing the possible hormone-dependent outcomes and health effects of their consumption throughout a lifespan, focusing on pregnancy, childhood, adulthood, and the premenopausal and postmenopausal stages. Expand

Molecular physiology, pathology, and regulation of the growth hormone/insulin-like growth factor-I system
TLDR
The overall goal is to reinforce the need for more complete understanding of the mechanisms of signaling and action of GH and IGF-I, in order to separate the potentially beneficial outcomes on growth and on tissue maintenance and repair from deleterious effects on cancer risk and lifespan. Expand
Serum insulin-like growth factor I (IGF-I) and IGF-binding protein 3 levels are increased in central precocious puberty: effects of two different treatment regimens with gonadotropin-releasing hormone agonists, without or in combination with an antiandrogen (cyproterone acetate).
TLDR
Researchers studied 40 patients with idiopathic CPP that were treated for 24 months with either GnRH analog in combination with an antiandrogen (cyproterone acetate) to block the possible effect of adrenal androgens and found that serum IGF-I levels were increased before treatment in both groups compared to those in normal age-matched prepubertal children.

The interaction of glucocorticoids with the growth hormone-insulin-like growth factor axis and its effects on growth plate chondrocytes and bone cells.
TLDR
GH in vitro and in vivo can partly counterbalance the negative effects of glucocorticoids on growth, and has been seen to normalize growth rates in corticosteroid-treated rats as well as in children receiving glucoc Corticosteroids for immunosuppression following kidney transplantation. Expand

TLDR
Addition of IGF-I treatment to insulin in adolescents with IDDM allows correction of GH hypersecretion, improves insulin sensitivity and glycemic control, and decreases insulin requirements. Expand
Determinants of circulating insulin-like growth factor-I.
TLDR
Although determination of IGF-I is recommended in assessing GH deficiency in children, its diagnostic value in patients with adult onset of GH deficiency is not agreed upon, and in the age group above 40-80 years many patients with pituitary/hypothalamic disorders and GH peaks below 3 microg/l during provocation tests have normal IGF-i levels.

TLDR
The growth-promoting effect of recombinant human IGF-I (rhIGF-I) in the extensively studied growth hormone insensitivity syndrome (GHIS; Laron syndrome) signifies an endocrine role for the GH-IGF system. Expand
The role of the growth hormone–insulin‐like growth factor axis in glucose homeostasis
TLDR
Evidence suggests that GH secretion is abnormally increased as a result of reduced portal insulin resulting in impaired hepatic IGF‐I generation, and this may contribute to the development of diabetic microvascular complications. Expand
The Insulin-Like Growth Factor I Generation Test in Adults
TLDR
The results show that, while activity of the GH/IGF-I axis declines with age, peripheral responsiveness to GH is not affected, and it is demonstrated that obese individuals produce greater increases in IGF-I following an acute bolus of GH. Expand
Effect of intraperitoneal insulin delivery on growth hormone binding protein, insulin-like growth factor (IGF)-I, and IGF-binding protein-3 in IDDM
TLDR
Low plasma insulin-like growth factor (IGF)-I despite high circulating growth hormone (GH) in insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (IDDM) indicate a hepatic GH resistance, which does not seem to be related to glycaemic control, but partly to insufficient portal insulinization. Expand
Sex steroid regulation of growth hormone secretion and action.
TLDR
Oestrogen treatment may have longer-term metabolic effects on hypogonadal women exerted through effects on the somatotrophic axis, and propeptide concentrations of type III and type I collagen, and osteocalcin rose and fell in parallel with IGF-1 during oral or transdermal oestrogen therapy. Expand
