Brief description The growth factor IGF-1 is proposed as a therapeutic agent to increase muscle mass and to reduce muscle wasting resulting from denervation, disuse, ageing and dystrophy. Understanding the precise mechanisms of IGF-1 action is essential for the potential therapeutic use of this factor. This research is focused on the molecular role of IGF-1 in healthy muscle and in the conditions of muscle wasting and degeneration.
