A growing body of evidence indicates that the epithelial-specific growth factors keratinocyte growth factor (KGF), fibroblast growth factor (FGF)-10, and hepatocyte growth factor (HGF) play important roles in lung development, lung inflammation, and repair. The therapeutic potential of these growth factors in lung disease has yet to be fully explored. KGF has been best studied and has impressive protective effects against a wide variety of injurious stimuli when given as a pretreatment in… Expand

TLDR
Intratracheal GF protects against experimental lung injury resulting rom both direct and indirect causes, including hyperoxia, cid aspiration, mechanical ventilation, radiation, bacterial neumonia, graft-vs-host disease, -naphthylthiourea, and leomycin. Expand
Keratinocyte growth factor/fibroblast growth factor 7, a homeostatic factor with therapeutic potential for epithelial protection and repair.
TLDR
KGF significantly reduced both the incidence and duration of severe OM in patients who were treated with myeloablative chemoradiotherapy before autologous peripheral blood progenitor cell transplantation for hematologic malignancies, and on the basis of its success in ameliorating cheMoradiotherapy-induced OM in humans and tissue damage in a variety of animal models, additional clinical applications of KGF are worthy of investigation. Expand
Hepatocyte growth factor and lung fibrosis.
TLDR
The modulation of HGF may be an attractive target for the treatment of lung fibrosis because it has antifibrotic properties demonstrated in experimental models of lung, kidney, heart, skin, and liver fibrosis. Expand
Hepatocyte Growth Factor, a Determinant of Airspace Homeostasis in the Murine Lung
TLDR
HGF signaling is necessary for alveolar homeostasis in the developing lung and that augmentation of HGF signaling can improve airspace morphology in murine emphysema, and studies converge on prosurvival signaling and antioxidant protection as critical pathways in HGF–mediated airspace maintenance or repair. Expand
Keratinocyte growth factor transiently alters pulmonary function in rats.
TLDR
The induction of alveolar and bronchiolar epithelial cell proliferation by K GF is paralleled by moderate functional consequences that should be taken into account when the therapeutic potential of KGF is tested. Expand
Defect of hepatocyte growth factor production by fibroblasts in human pulmonary emphysema.
TLDR
In vitro production of HGF and KGF by human fibroblasts cultured from emphysematous and normal lung samples showed lower levels than controls at baseline but could not be stimulated with interleukin-1beta. Expand
A Critical Role for Fibroblast Growth Factor-7 during Early Alveolar Formation in the Neonatal Rat
TLDR
It is concluded that FGF-7, most likely through its effect on the vascular bed, is required for normal early postnatal alveolar formation from secondary crests. Expand
Keratinocyte growth factor promotes cell motility during alveolar epithelial repair in vitro.
TLDR
KGF enhanced wound closure in an in vitro wound-healing model and was associated with increased fibronectin deposition during wound closure and with fibronECTin reorganization into fibrils at the rear of the cells. Expand
Keratinocyte growth factor gene transduction ameliorates acute lung injury and mortality in mice.
TLDR
Findings suggest that KGF gene transduction into the airway epithelium is a promising potential treatment for ALI. Expand
Regulation of hepatocyte growth factor secretion by fibroblasts in patients with acute lung injury.
TLDR
BALF mediators may participate in vivo in the production of HGF and KGF by lung fibroblasts during ALI/ARDS and IL-1beta is a main BALF mediator involved in HGF secretion, which is mediated through a PGE(2)/COX-2-dependent mechanism. Expand

TLDR
A series of studies have provided insight into the expression and function of KGF in inflammation and repair of various tissues and organs, and a therapeutic potential of this growth factor has been demonstrated. Expand
Preclinical and Early Clinical Development of Keratinocyte Growth Factor, an Epithelial- Specific Tissue Growth Factor
TLDR
Systemic administration of recombinant human KGF provides significant cytoprotection to epithelial tissues in a number of different animal models of epithelial/mucosal damage, including models of injury to the gastrointestinal tract, lung, urinary bladder, and hair follicles. Expand
Hepatocyte growth factor and keratinocyte growth factor in the pulmonary edema fluid of patients with acute lung injury. Biologic and clinical significance.
TLDR
Results show that HGF and KGF are active in the alveolar space early in ALI, probably mediating early events in lung repair, and that increased levels of HGF in edema fluid may have prognostic value early inALI. Expand
Hepatocyte growth factor attenuates collagen accumulation in a murine model of pulmonary fibrosis.
TLDR
HGF has potent in vivo and in vitro effects on epithelial cells, which suggests it may have a role in the therapy of pulmonary fibrosis. Expand
Keratinocyte growth factor and embryonic rat lung morphogenesis.
TLDR
In conclusion, KGF markedly influences branching, and epithelial growth, differentiation, and patterning during lung morphogenesis. Expand
Hepatocyte growth factor may act as a pulmotrophic factor on lung regeneration after acute lung injury.
TLDR
It is suggested that HGF is newly produced in the lung after acute lung injury and may have a role in regeneration of the lung. Expand
Keratinocyte growth factor enhances maturation of fetal rat lung type II cells.
TLDR
It is shown that KGF is a potent stimulus of surfactant phospholipid synthesis, particularly for the major component of Surfant, disaturated phosphatidylcholine (DSPC), and may provide a new therapeutic agent for the management of the immature or injured lung. Expand
Acidic fibroblast growth factor and keratinocyte growth factor stimulate fetal rat pulmonary epithelial growth.
TLDR
It is concluded that aFGF and KGF may be important mediators in epithelial-mesenchymal interactions and were more potent mitogens than EGF, transforming growth factor-alpha, and hepatocyte growth factor. Expand
Role of keratinocyte growth factor in the control of surfactant synthesis by fetal lung mesenchyme.
TLDR
It is found that KGF accounts for about half of the stimulating activity present in fetal lung fibroblast-conditioned medium (FCM), and seems to be a major player in mediating glucocorticoid stimulation of fetal lung maturation. Expand
Keratinocyte growth factor induces angiogenesis and protects endothelial barrier function.
TLDR
These newfound abilities of KGF to induce angiogenesis and to stabilize endothelial barriers suggest that it functions in microvascular tissue as it does in epithelial tissues to protect them against mild insults and to speed their repair after major damage. Expand
