Fibroblast froth factors (FGFs) are humoral factors identified by their ability to stimulate cell proliferation1. They play different roles in the regulation of cell proliferation, differentiation and function. Most FGF family members act as paracrine factors. But FGF19(FGF19) subfamily members, including FGF19, 21, and 23, work as endocrine factors to regulate bile acid, carbohydrate and phosphate metabolism2. Of these, FGF23 plays an important role in phosphate and bone metabolism3. FGF23 gene encodes 251 amino acids, including a 24-amino acid signal peptide4. The secreted FGF23 is a protein consisted of 227 amino acids. It works by binding to a Klotho-FGF receptor 1c (FGF1c) complex5. FGF suppresses the expression of type 2a and 2c sodium-phosphate cotransporters, which mediate phosphate reabsorption in proximal tubules.6 FGF23 decreases 25-hydroxyvitamin D-1α-hydroxylase expression and enhances 25-hydroxyvitamin D-24-hydroxylase expression6. Therefore, FGF23 reduces serum 1,25-dihydroxyvitamin D〔1,25(OH)2D〕, which stimulates intestinal calcium and phosphate absorption. FGF23 decreases serum phosphate through the above mechanisms FGF23 over-expression might result in hypophosphatemic rickets and osteomalacia.
Tumor induced osteomalacia (TIO) is a paraneoplastic syndrome usually caused by benign phosphaturic mesenchymal tumors. Symptoms are nonspecific, such as general weakness, fatigue, and bone pain. Sometimes fracture may occurs. The responsible tumors are sometimes small and difficult to detect. Tumors secrete FGF23. FGF23 reduced phosphate reabsorption in the proximal tubules and decrease 1,25(OH)2D levels, which result in hypophosphatemia and then osteomalacia.
The investigators would like to observe the changes of FGF23 in patients who receive operation or medical treatment and hope this will benefit future treatment.
