  • M. WinsletEmail author



The aim of this review is to clarify the involvement of the insulinlike growth factor (IGF) system in the development of colorectal malignancy.

Materials and methods

Medline searches were used to identify key articles relating the IGF system with the development of colorectal cancer.


The IGF system has been linked to colorectal malignancy by a convergence of data from epidemiological, clinical and laboratory-based sources.


Further work is needed to characterise the IGF system expression in the colon. Such clarification could lead to the identification of targets that can be manipulated for clinical advantage.
