- Fibroblast growth factor 23 is not associated with and does not induce arterial calcificationJulia J Scialla
Division of Nephrology and Hypertension, Department of Medicine, University of Miami Miller School of Medicine, Miami, Florida 33136, USA
Kidney Int 83:1159-68. 2013..Thus, in contrast to serum phosphate, FGF23 is not associated with arterial calcification and does not promote calcification experimentally. Hence, phosphate and FGF23 promote cardiovascular disease through distinct mechanisms...
