  • Squamous intraepithelial lesions (SILs) are areas of precancerous growth in the cervix that can be indicative of future cervical cancer. Insulin-like growth factors (IGFs) and their binding proteins (IGFBPs) have been implicated in cancer development. Recent studies have demonstrated that elevated plasma IGF-I levels are associated with increased risk of prostate, lung, colon, and breast cancers. In this case-control study, we analyzed the relationship between serum levels of IGF-I and IGFBP-3… CONTINUE READING
