Top Endocrine Publications of 2010: Canine and Feline Islet Cell Tumors of the Pancreas

In my second compilation of the canine and feline endocrine publications of 2010, I’m sticking with disorders of the pancreas. But now let’s now move on to islet cell tumors (eg, insulinoma) and other causes of hypoglycemia.

Listed below are 6 research papers written in 2010 that review new aspects in the diagnosis or therapy of insulin-secreting tumors of the pancreas (1, 3), pancreatic polypeptide-secreting islet cell tumor (2), glucagon-secreting islet cell tumor or glucagonoma (4), and paraneoplastic hypoglycemia (6).

2010 Papers on Canine and Feline Islet Cell Tumors of the Pancreas and Other Causes for Hypoglycemia:
  1. Buishand FO, Kik M, Kirpensteijn J. Evaluation of clinico-pathological criteria and the Ki67 index as prognostic indicators in canine insulinoma. Veterinary Journal 2010;185:62-67.
  2. Cruz Cardona JA, Wamsley HL, Farina LL, et al. Metastatic pancreatic polypeptide-secreting islet cell tumor in a dog. Veterinary Clinical Pathology 2010;39:371-376.
  3. Moretti S, Tschuor F, Osto M, et al. Evaluation of a novel real-time continuous glucose-monitoring system for use in cats. Journal of Veterinary Internal Medicine 2010;24:120-126.
  4. Oberkirchner U, Linder KE, Zadrozny L, et al. Successful treatment of canine necrolytic migratory erythema (superficial necrolytic dermatitis) due to metastatic glucagonoma with octreotide. Veterinary Dermatology 2010;21:510-516.
  5. Rivera N, Ramnanan CJ, An Z, et al. Insulin-induced hypoglycemia increases hepatic sensitivity to glucagon in dogs. The Journal of Clinical Investigation 2010;120:4425-4435.
  6. Rossi G, Errico G, Perez P, et al. Paraneoplastic hypoglycemia in a diabetic dog with an insulin growth factor-2-producing mammary carcinoma. Veterinary Clinical Pathology 2010;39:480-484.
