In terms of pathogenesis, the phosphaturic role of FGF7, which has recently been proposed, needs to be further elaborated in the future studies.
Carriers of at least 1 variant allele for rs3809495 in the FGF7 (fibroblast growth factor 7) gene had the highest risk of ovarian cancer (OR, 2.99; 95% CI, 1.07-8.42; P = 0.038).

KGF, another member of FGFs family, also known as FGF7, has been also detected in adipose tissue [14, 15].
Signalling pathways activating the formation of motile mesenchymal cells are induced by growth factors, such as the early growth response protein 1 (Egr1) and fibroblast growth factors 2 and 7 (Fgf2, Fgf7) [18, 19].
Silencing expression of PGR in uterine epithelia is preceded by P4 actions via PGRpositive uterine stromal cells (SC) to induce expression of one or more progestamedins, e.g., fibroblast growth factor-7 (FGF7) and -10 (FGF10), and hepatocyte growth factor (HGF) in the ovine uterus.
These aliquots were analyzed for 4 genes: ACTB [7] (actin, beta), IL1B (interleukin 1, beta), CASP3 (caspase 3, apoptosis-related cysteine peptidase), and FGF7 [fibroblast growth factor 7 (keratinocyte growth factor)] in singleplex format.
