Fibroblast growth factors (FGFs) exert diverse biological effects by binding and activation of specific fibroblast growth factor receptors (FGFRs). FGFs and FGFRs have been implicated in demyelinating pathologies including multiple sclerosis. In vitro activation of the FGF2/FGFR1 pathway results in downregulation of myelin proteins. FGF1, 2 and 9 have been shown to be involved in the pathology of multiple sclerosis. Recent studies on the function of oligodendroglial FGFR1 in a model of toxic demyelination showed that deletion of FGFR1 led to increased remyelination and preservation of axonal density and an increased number of mature oligodendrocytes...

The fibroblast growth factor/fibroblast growth factor receptor (FGF/FGFR) is a tyrosine kinase signaling pathway that has a fundamental role in many biologic processes including embryonic development, tissue regeneration, and angiogenesis. Increasing evidence indicates that this pathway plays a critical role in oncogenesis via gene amplification, activating mutations, or translocation in tumors of various histologies. With multiplex sequencing technology, the detection of FGFR aberrations has become more common and is tied to cancer cell proliferation, resistance to anticancer therapies, and neoangiogenesis...

Multidrug resistance protein 7 (MRP7, ABCC10) is a recently identified member of the ATP-binding cassette (ABC) transporter family, which adequately confers resistance to a diverse group of antineoplastic agents, including taxanes, vinca alkaloids and nucleoside analogs among others. Clinical studies indicate an increased MRP7 expression in non-small cell lung carcinomas (NSCLC) compared to a normal healthy lung tissue. Recent studies revealed increased paclitaxel sensitivity in the Mrp7(-/-) mouse model compared to their wild-type counterparts...

Demycarosyl-3D-ß-D-digitoxosyl-mithramycin SK (DIG-MSK) is a recently isolated analogue of mithramycin A (MTA) that showed differences with MTA in the DNA binding strength and selectivity. These differences correlated with a better therapeutic index and less toxicity in animal studies. Herein, we show that DIG-MSK displays a potent anti-tumor activity against different types of cancer cell lines, ovarian tumor cells being particularly sensitive to this drug. Of relevance, DIG-MSK exerts low toxicity on fibroblasts and peripheral blood mononuclear cells, this toxicity being significantly lower than that of MTA...

Activating mutations in the fibroblast growth factor receptor 3 (FGFR3) cause the most common genetic form of human dwarfism, achondroplasia (ACH). Small chemical inhibitors of FGFR tyrosine kinase activity are considered to be viable option for treating ACH, but little experimental evidence supports this claim. We evaluated five FGFR tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKIs) (SU5402, PD173074, AZD1480, AZD4547 and BGJ398) for their activity against FGFR signaling in chondrocytes. All five TKIs strongly inhibited FGFR activation in cultured chondrocytes and limb rudiment cultures, completely relieving FGFR-mediated inhibition of chondrocyte proliferation and maturation...

Our previous studies demonstrated that fibroblast growth factor 9 (FGF9) protects cortical and dopaminergic neurons from 1-methyl-4-phenylpyridinium (MPP(+))-induced oxidative insult by upregulation of γ-glutamylcysteine synthetase (γ-GCS) and heme oxygenase-1 (HO-1). However, the mechanisms responsible for FGF9-induced γ-GCS and HO-1 upregulation remain uncharacterized. In the present study, we demonstrate the signaling pathways by which FGF9 upregulates HO-1 and γ-GCS expression. We found that FGF9-induced HO-1 and γ-GCS expression was prevented by PD173014, an inhibitor of the FGF receptor (FGFR)...

The fibroblast growth factor signaling pathway (FGFR signaling) is an evolutionary conserved signaling cascade that regulates several basic biologic processes, including tissue development, angiogenesis, and tissue regeneration. Substantial evidence indicates that aberrant FGFR signaling is involved in the pathogenesis of cancer. Recent developments of deep sequencing technologies have allowed the discovery of frequent molecular alterations in components of FGFR signaling among several solid tumor types. Moreover, compelling preclinical models have demonstrated the oncogenic potential of these aberrations in driving tumor growth, promoting angiogenesis, and conferring resistance mechanisms to anticancer therapies...

Targeted therapies have developed rapidly over the last few years in the field of oncology thanks to a better understanding of carcinogenesis. They target pathways involved in signal transduction (EGFR, HER2, HER3, HER4, FLT3, RAS, RAF, MEK, KIT, RET, mTOR, SRC, EPH, SCF), tumor angiogenesis (VEGFR, TIE2), and tumor microenvironment (PDGFR, FGFR). They rarely cause the systemic adverse reactions generally associated with chemotherapy, but frequently cause disabling and specific skin toxicity. The impact on patient quality of life can be important both in terms of symptoms caused and of potentially aesthetic consequences...
