Prediagnostic circulating concentrations of plasma insulin-like growth factor-I and risk of lymphoma in the European Prospective Investigation into Cancer and Nutrition
Insulin-like growth factor-I (IGF-I) has cancer promoting activities. However, the hypothesis that circulating IGF-I concentration is related to risk of lymphoma overall or its subtypes has not been examined prospectively. IGF-I concentration was measured in pre-diagnostic plasma samples from a nested case-control study of 1072 cases of lymphoid malignancies and 1072 individually matched controls from the European Prospective Investigation into Cancer and Nutrition.
