Growth Hormone IGF-1 & Prostate Cancer: A new study shows a link between IGF-1 and prostate cancer.

Here, a Harvard-trained medical doctor responds.

The January 23 issue of the prestigious journal Science contained an important article with the title "Plasma Insulin-Like Growth Factor-1 and Prostate Cancer Risk: A Prospective Study." This well-done statistical study by June Chan and her co-authors at the Harvard School of Public Health shows that men who happen to have high levels of IGF-1 have up to a four-fold increased risk of developing prostate cancer.

Oridonin induces human melanoma A375-S2 cell death partially through inhibiting insulin-like growth factor

Oridonin induces human melanoma A375-S2 cell death partially through inhibiting insulin-like growth factor 1 receptor signaling

Our previous studies indicated that oridonin, a diterpenoid isolated from Rabdosia rubescens, induced human melanoma A375-S2 cell apoptosis. In this study, we investigated whether the proapoptoti...

Effect of a Tomato Drink Intervention on Insulin-Like Growth Factor (IGF)-1 Serum Levels in Healthy Subjects

Abstract: There is concern that dietary factors can modulate the insulin-like growth factor (IGF) system. The aim of this work was to evaluate the effect of a tomato drink intervention providing ...

IGF-1, IGFBP-3, and Nutritional Factors in Young Black and White Men: The CARDIA Male Hormone Study
