Heparinase activity expressed by platelets, neutrophils, and lymphoma cells releases active fibroblast growth factor
from extracellular matrix.

Fibroblast growth factors
induce additional limb development from the flank of chick embryos.
Fibroblast growth factor
21 action in the brain increases energy expenditure and insulin sensitivity in obese rats.
The team further experimented on zebrafish, and were able to rescue the development of the forelimb-pectoral fin-by treating retinoic acid-deficient embryos with a drug that reduces fibroblast growth factor
Experimenters have also found that a protein called fibroblast growth factor
(FGF) speeds nerve growth.
It is a new human monoclonal antibody specific for fibroblast growth factor
receptor 3 that is being developed to target FGFR3-positive tumours.
Last year, two groups reported that achondroplasia, the most common genetic form of dwarfism, results from a small mutation in the gene that contains the instructions for fibroblast growth factor
receptor 3 (FGFR3), a protein needed for skeletal development in the embryo.
Haluzik's presentation, titled 'Ten Months of Treatment with Endoscopic Duodenal-jejunal Bypass Liner Reduces Glycemic Variability, Increases Serum Fibroblast Growth Factor
19 (FGF-19), and Partially Restores the Incretin Effect in Obese Subjects with Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus,' follows the progress of 30 obese patients with type 2 diabetes after being implanted with the EndoBarrier gastrointestinal liner.
