Phosphate Homeostasis, Inflammation and the Regulation of FGF-23
Fibroblast growth factor 23 (FGF23) is released primarily from osteoblasts/osteocytes in bone. In cooperation with the transmembrane protein Klotho, FGF23 is a powerful inhibitor of 1 α 25OH Vitamin D Hydroxylase (Cyp27b1) and thus of the formation of 1,25-dihydroxyvitamin D3 (1,25(OH)2D3). As 1,25(OH)2D3 up-regulates intestinal calcium and phosphate absorption, the downregulation of 1,25(OH)2D3 synthesis counteracts phosphate excess and tissue calcification. FGF23 also directly inhibits renal phosphate reabsorption. Other actions of FGF23 include triggering of cardiac hypertrophy. FGF23 formation and/or release are ...

Percutaneous interventions of the left main coronary artery, the only elective procedures influencing patients ’ prognosis, were done more frequently in CKD patients with AF. In-hospital mortality was significantly higher in patients with severe renal impairment.

Prognostic Cardiovascular Markers in Chronic Kidney Disease
Chronic kidney disease (CKD), including end-stage renal disease (ESRD), is a public health issue worldwide, and is associated with high rates of morbidity and mortality. In addition, cardiovascular disease is a major cause of mortality in these patients. Both traditional and nontraditional risk factors associated with CKD can lead to remodeling of the myocardium and blood vessels, thereby resulting in cardiomyopathy, atherosclerosis and arterial stiffness. This can subsequently lead to ischemic heart disease, heart failure, cardiovascular death, rapid renal progression and progression to ESRD. Identifying these risk factor...
