Acting in a classically endocrine manner, IGF-I can mediate growth, as demonstrated by IGF-I infusions in experimental studies involving hypophysectomized animals (23–25). Endocrine IGF-I has an important role in the feedback control of pituitary GH secretion; increases in circulating IGF-I concentrations result in negative feedback and decreased GH release. Autocrine and paracrine actions of locally synthesized IGF-I are responsible for mediating a significant proportion of the other effects attributed to IGF-I.
