Time course of fenretinide-induced modulation of circulating insulin-like growth factor (IGF)-I, IGF-II and IGFBP-3 in a bladder cancer chemoprevention trial
The insulin-like growth factor (IGF) system is widely involved in human carcinogenesis. A significant association between high circulating IGF-I concentrations and an increased risk of lung, colon, prostate and pre-menopausal breast cancer has recently been reported. Lowering plasma IGF-I may thus represent an attractive strategy to be pursued for chemopreventive purposes. We have previously shown that the synthetic retinoid fenretinide (4-HPR) lowers plasma IGF-I in pre-menopausal breast cancer patients. We investigated the effect of fenretinide on circulating IGF-I, IGF-II and IGFBP-3 measured at yearly intervals during the 2-year treatment period and one year after treatment discontinuation in a predominantly male population of patients with superficial bladder cancer. Repeated measures analysis, after adjustment for age, body mass index (BMI) and year of study, showed a significant effect of fenretinide on IGF-I levels, which were further lowered after the second year of treatment and only partially recovered after drug discontinuation. Differently from breast cancer patients, the effect of fenretinide was not modified by age. No significant effect was evident on IGFBP-3, IGF-II and the IGF-I+IGF-II/IGFBP-3 molar ratio, expressing the tissue availability of the mitogenic peptides, although IGF-II and the molar ratio were lowered by treatment by an overall mean of 16% and 15%, respectively. Given the increasingly recognized importance of circulating IGFs in the pathogenesi
