Insulin-Like Growth Factor Binding Protein 1
Comparative analysis of glucoinsulinemic markers and proinflammatory cytokines in prepubertal children born large-versus appropriate-for gestational age.
İstanbul, Turkey. In Endocrine, 21 Mar 2014
To evaluate serum interleukin-6 (IL-6), tumor necrosis factor-α (TNF-α), leptin, insulin-like growth factor-1 (IGF-1), and IGF-binding protein-1 (IGFBP-1) concentrations in idiopathic LGA-born children to appropriate for gestational age (AGA) and idiopathic LGA-born children at prepubertal ages and investigate their associations with IR, evaluated by homeostasis model assessment-IR (HOMA-IR), we conducted a cross-sectional study to compare 40 (19 females) idiopathic LGA-born prepubertal children [mean ± SD age 6.1 ± 2.5 years] and 49 (25 females) (5.4 ± 1.8 years) AGA-born BMI-matched peers with respect to anthropometric and laboratory data.

San Francisco, United States. In Tuberculosis (edinb), 07 Mar 2014
RESULTS: We identified protein expression differences associated with 8-week culture status, including Coagulation Factor V, SAA, XPNPEP1, PSME1, IL-11 Rα, HSP70, Galectin-8, α2-Antiplasmin, ECM1, YES, IGFBP-1, CATZ, BGN, LYNB, and IL-7.
[Amniotic fluid embolism: an update].
Paris, France. In Ann Fr Anesth Reanim, Mar 2013
High plasma level of insulin-like growth factor-binding protein-1 (IGFBP-1) has recently been identified as a biomarker of amniotic fluid passage into the maternal circulation and might therefore be used to confirm the diagnosis when lung tissue histology is not available.
