Growth Factor
Basic (FGF-B)
Gene Expression


The FGF-B growth factor proteins are involved in angiogenesis (blood vessel formation), wound healing and embryonic development. The FGF-B assay is designed to evaluate the functioning of the extra cellular matrix. In cases of cancer, this assay will also indicate whether protein growth factors are promoting tumour growth, with elevated concentrations signifying the accumulation of Cancer Cells. Low FGF-B quantities are associated with poor tissue maintenance and defective wound repair.


FGF-B is a protein produced by some cells in the neural tissue, retina, bone matrix, pituitary gland, adrenal cortex, corpus luteum and placenta. It plays a significant role in modulating angiogenesis, tissue repair, neural function, and embryonic development. It is essential for proliferation of fibroblasts (connective cells) which are active metabolic centres of extra cellular matrix. This assay is designed to evaluate the presence of one of the cancer growth promoting factors (if there is a cancer) and also the functioning of extra cellular matrix.

High FGF-B quantities are associated with the accumulation of cancerous cells if there is a cancer. Low quantities are associated with both poor tissue maintenance and wound repair.


This assay will provide extremely valuable and accurate information relating to all forms of cancer.
