Fibroblast growth factor (FGF)21 is promptly induced by short fasting in animal models to regulate glucose and fat metabolism. Data on FGF21 in humans are inconsistent and FGF21 has not yet been investigated in old patients with cachexia, a complex syndrome characterized by inflammation and weight loss. The aim of this study was to explore the association of FGF21 with cachexia in old patients compared with their healthy counterparts.

This study assessed the impact of iron administration on serum fibroblast growth factor 23 (FGF23) levels.
Elevated serum concentrations of fibroblast growth factor 23 (FGF23) are associated with cardiovascular mortality in patients with chronic kidney disease and those undergoing dialysis.
The anti-inflammatory role of the active metabolite of vitamin D, namely 1, 25-dihydroxyvitamin D (calcitriol), has been reported in multiple sclerosis (MS). Moreover, recent studies have shown that f...
Fibroblast growth factor 23 is an emerging vascular biomarker, recently associated with cerebral small vessel disease and poor cognition in patients on dialysis. It also interacts with klotho, an anti...
This study aimed to explore the association between growth differentiation factor-15 (GDF-15), a stress-induced factor, and sex hormones in male patients with coronary artery disease (CAD). In this st...
Serum FGF-23 levels will be measured in patients with a history of coronary artery disease and aortic valve calcifications.It will be searched whether patients with MPI>0.47 had higher or ...
Fibroblast Growth Factor 23 and Fibroblast Growth Factor 21 are two endocrine Fibroblast Growth Factors, requiring Klotho as a co-factor to promote their systemic actions. Fibroblast Growt...
The fibroblast growth factor-23-bone-kidney axis is part of newly discovered biological systems linking bone to other organ functions through a complex endocrine network that is integrated...

The present clinical trial clarified that basic fibroblast growth factor-2 (FGF-2) can induce regeneration of periodontal tissue lost by progression of periodontitis and evaluated the safe...
A fibroblast growth factor receptor that is found in two isoforms. One receptor isoform is found in the MESENCHYME and is activated by FIBROBLAST GROWTH FACTOR 2. A second isoform of fibroblast growth factor receptor 2 is found mainly in EPITHELIAL CELLS and is activated by FIBROBLAST GROWTH FACTOR 7 and FIBROBLAST GROWTH FACTOR 10. Mutation of the gene for fibroblast growth factor receptor 2 can result in APERT SYNDROME.
The most divergent of the known fibroblast growth factor receptors. It does not contain an intracellular TYROSINE KINASE domain and has been shown to interact with FIBROBLAST GROWTH FACTOR 2. Fibroblast growth factor receptor 5 is found primarily in skeletal tissue.
A single-chain polypeptide growth factor that plays a significant role in the process of WOUND HEALING and is a potent inducer of PHYSIOLOGIC ANGIOGENESIS. Several different forms of the human protein exist ranging from 18-24 kDa in size due to the use of alternative start sites within the fgf-2 gene. It has a 55 percent amino acid residue identity to FIBROBLAST GROWTH FACTOR 1 and has potent heparin-binding activity. The growth factor is an extremely potent inducer of DNA synthesis in a variety of cell types from mesoderm and neuroectoderm lineages. It was originally named basic fibroblast growth factor based upon its chemical properties and to distinguish it from acidic fibroblast growth factor (FIBROBLAST GROWTH FACTOR 1).
A fibroblast growth factor that preferentially activates FIBROBLAST GROWTH FACTOR RECEPTOR 4. It was initially identified as an androgen-induced growth factor and plays a role in regulating growth of human BREAST NEOPLASMS and PROSTATIC NEOPLASMS.
A 17-kDa single-chain polypeptide growth factor that plays a significant role in the process of WOUND HEALING and is a potent inducer of PHYSIOLOGIC ANGIOGENESIS. It binds to HEPARIN, which potentiates its biological activity and protects it from proteolysis. The growth factor is an extremely potent inducer of DNA synthesis in a variety of cell types from mesoderm and neuroectoderm lineages, and also has chemotactic and mitogenic activities. It was originally named acidic fibroblast growth factor based upon its chemical properties and to distinguish it from basic fibroblast growth factor (FIBROBLAST GROWTH FACTOR 2).
