Umbilical venous IGF-1 concentration, neonatal bone mass, and body composition.

Abstract:

IGF-1 is a key growth factor during fetal life. Using DXA, we found that the concentration of IGF-1 in umbilical cord serum is strongly related to neonatal whole body bone mineral content, lean mass, and fat mass. However IGF-1 did not explain the relationships of maternal smoking, fat mass, and physical activity with neonatal bone mass. The study supports a direct role for circulating IGF-1 in growth of the fetal skeleton. INTRODUCTION: Evidence is accumulating that the risk of osteoporosis ...
