    Psychoneuroendocrinology 22:493-503. 1997
    ..After treatment only patients in remission had attenuated IGF-I plasma concentrations. We conclude that plasma IGF-I is increased in acutely depressed patients similar to other states of hypercortisolemia...

    M Deuschle
    Max Planck Institute of Psychiatry, Clinical Institute, , Germany
    Horm Metab Res 28:714-7. 1996
