Epidemiology of metabolite profile and prostate cancer risk

Abstract:

Insulin-like growth factor-I (IGF-I) is the only known potentially modifiable risk factor for prostate cancer. Intake of dietary protein, especially from dairy products, might also be associated with risk and with circulating IGF-I, but it is not clear if amino acids play a role in these relationships. Moreover, investigations of circulating concentrations of metabolites might reveal novel risk factors for prostate cancer. This thesis investigates plasma concentrations of amino acids and o...
