Fibroblast Growth Factor-23 (FGF-23) is Independently Associated With Left Ventricular Mass Index (LVMI) and Myocardial Performance Index (MPI) in Haemodialysis Patients

2014-08-27 03:12:30 | BioPortfolio

Summary

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 lower serum FGF-23 levels than those with MPI<0.47. Correlations will be examined between log FGF-23 levels and LVMI and MPI. Uni and Multivariable-adjusted regression analyses regarding whether increased log FGF-23 concentrations are independently associated with increased left ventricular mass index and increased MPI, will be performed.

Description

Fibroblast growth factor 23 (FGF-23) is a phosphorus-regulating substance. Circulating FGF-23 levels increase markedly in dialysis patients and are independently associated with increased risk of mortality. Given the fact that cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death in dialysis patients, the aim of this study was to test if elevated FGF-23 levels might be associated with left ventricular mass index (LVMI) and left ventricular index of myocardial performance (MPI) in maintenance haemodialysis patients.

Methods: In this cross-sectional study, plasma FGF-23 concentrations are measured using a C-terminal human enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay kit and echocardiography is performed in maintenance haemodialysis patients.

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 lower serum FGF-23 levels than those with MPI<0.47. Correlations will be examined between log FGF-23 levels and LVMI and MPI. Uni and Multivariable-adjusted regression analyses regarding whether increased log FGF-23 concentrations are independently associated with increased left ventricular mass index and increased MPI, will be performed.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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 fibroblast growth factor receptor with specificity for FIBROBLAST GROWTH FACTORS; HEPARAN SULFATE PROTEOGLYCAN; and NEURONAL CELL ADHESION MOLECULES. Several variants of the receptor exist due to multiple ALTERNATIVE SPLICING of its mRNA. Fibroblast growth factor receptor 1 is a tyrosine kinase that transmits signals through the MAP KINASE SIGNALING SYSTEM.

A fibroblast growth factor that was initially identified based on its sequence similarity to FIBROBLAST GROWTH FACTOR 4. It is found in MYOBLASTS and plays an important role in MUSCLE DEVELOPMENT.

A fibroblast growth factor that is a specific mitogen for EPITHELIAL CELLS. It binds a complex of HEPARAN SULFATE and FIBROBLAST GROWTH FACTOR RECEPTOR 2B.
