Measurement of insulin-like growth factor axis does not enhance specificity of PSA-based prostate cancer screening.

Abstract:

OBJECTIVES: To examine whether measurement of insulin-like growth factor (IGF)-I, IGF-II, IGF binding protein (IGFBP)-2 or IGFBP-3, alone or in combination, enhanced the specificity of prostate cancer detection among men with a prostate-specific antigen (PSA) level of 3 ng/mL or greater beyond that achieved by the free/total PSA index.
