The kinetics of the fall of total IGF-I after surgery are complex, reflecting, among other things, contributions of continuing (and potentially changing) production of IGF-I and separate kinetics for clearance of free IGF-I and clearances of the binary complex (IGF-I and IGF-binding proteins), and the ternary complex, which also includes an acid-labile subunit. We therefore analyzed the fall of IGF-I after surgery with descriptive measures only: (a) the rate of decline of IGF-I concentration per 24 h in each patient and (b) the apparent half-life of IGF-I in each patient.
Postoperative evaluation of patients with acromegaly: clinical significance and timing of oral glucose tolerance testing and measurement of (free) insulin-like growth factor I, acid-labile subunit, and growth hormone-binding protein levels.
The complex is composed of three units; one molecule of IGF-I or -II, one molecule of IGFBP-3 or IGFBP-5 and one molecule termed the acid-labile subunit (ALS) (Baxter, 1988; Baxter and Martin, 1989; Baxter et al., 1989; Twigg and Baxter, 1998).
