Prostate cancer risk in relation to insulin-like growth factor (IGF)-I and IGF-binding protein-3: A nested case-control study in large scale cohort study in Japan.

Abstract

High levels of insulin-like growth factor (IGF)-I are reported to be associated with an increased risk of prostate cancer. On the other hand, the insulin-like growth factor binding protein-3 (IGFBP-3) may decrease the risk. We therefore investigated the influence of serum IGF-I and IGFBP-3 on prostate cancer risk in a case-control study nested within a… (More)
