Background and Aim: Gliomas are the most frequent solid tumors in pediatric population. The IGF system of ligands and receptors are known to play an important role in both normal and neoplastic growth. In a previous work we have reported the quantitation of some components of the IGFs system in SNC pediatric tumours (IGF-1, IGF-2, IGF-1R, IR), being IGF-2 expression the most variable among all the genes studied.Our aim w...
