Sarcopenia and hypertrophy: A role for insulin-like growth factor-1 in aged muscle?
EXERC SPORT SCI REV
15 - 19.
Sarcopenia is the loss of muscle mass associated with the aging process. Although systemic or circulating growth hormone and insulin-like growth factor-1 levels fall as we age, this is likely to be of lesser importance in regard to muscle mass than the rule of locally produced insulin-like growth factor-Is generated in the muscle in response to exercise.
