Uraemic cardiac remodelling is associated with vitamin D and Klotho deficiency, elevated fibroblast growth factor 23 (FGF23) and activation of the renin-angiotensin system (RAS). The cardioprotective properties of active vitamin D analogues in this setting are unclear. In rats with 5/6 nephrectomy (5/6Nx) treated with calcitriol, the cardiac phenotype and local RAS activation were investigated compared with controls. A nested case-control study was performed within the Cardiovascular Comorbidity in Children with Chronic Kidney Disease (4C) study, including children with chronic kidney disease (CKD) Stages 3-5 [estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) 25mL/min/1.73m2] treated with and without active vitamin D. Echocardiograms, plasma FGF23 and soluble Klotho (sKlotho) were assessed at baseline and after 9months.In rats with 5/6Nx, left ventricular (LV) hypertrophy, LV fibrosis and upregulated cardiac RAS were dose-dependently attenuated by calcitriol. Calcitriol further stimulated FGF23 synthesis in bone but not in the heart, and normalized suppressed renal Klotho expression. In the 4C study cohort, treatment over a mean period of 9months with active vitamin D was associated with increased FGF23 and phosphate and decreased sKlotho and eGFR compared with vitamin D naïve controls, whereas LV mass index did not differ between groups.Active vitamin D ameliorates cardiac remodelling and normalizes renal Klotho expression in 5/6Nx rats but does not improve the cardiac phenotype in children with CKD Stages 3-5. This discrepancy may be due to further enhancement of circulating FGF23 and faster progression of CKD associated with reduced sKlotho and higher serum phosphate in vitamin D-treated patients.
