Assays for insulin-like growth factor I (IGF-I) and IGF-binding protein 3 (IGFBP-3) have become essential tools in the diagnostic work-up of disorders of the somatotropic axis in children and adults. The aim of this study was to evaluate the automated IMMULITE IGF-I and IGFBP-3 assays and to establish reference limits--central 95% intervals, median, 0.1 and other centiles as clinically relevant--as a function of age from 797 females and 787 males, from the first week of life through the ninth… CONTINUE READING
