Abstract

Background: Insulin-like growth factor I (IGF-I) measurements are used in veterinary medicine for diagnosing growth hormone disorders. IGF-I assays are subject to interference by IGF-binding proteins (IGFBP) which may not be efficiently removed by standard extraction methods. Adding excess IGF-II...

Abstract

Objective: To evaluate 4 methods used to measure plasma insulin-like growth factor (IGF) 1 concentrations in healthy cats and cats with diabetes mellitus or other diseases. Animals: 39 healthy cats, 7 cats with diabetes mellitus, and 33 cats with other diseases. Procedures: 4 assays preceded by...

Abstract

Screening diabetic cats for feline hypersomatotropism (HS) is currently dependent on using a radioimmunoassay (RIA) for measurement of growth hormone or insulin-like growth factor 1 (IGF-1), both of which require radioactivity, are costly and have limited availability. Performance of an...

Abstract

Background: N-terminal type III procollagen propeptide (PIIINP) is a biomarker of soft tissue proliferation. Hypersomatotropism (HS) is associated with soft tissue proliferation. Hypothesis: Serum PIIINP is increased in cats with HS and decreases with effective treatment, and may be an additional...

Abstract

Objectives: The aim of this study was to evaluate changes in circulating insulin-like growth factor type 1 (IGF-1) concentrations in hyperthyroid cats, before and after thiamazole treatment. Methods: Thirty-four hyperthyroid cats were retrospectively included. Plasma free thyroxine (fT4) and IGF-1...

Abstract

Naturally occurring diabetes mellitus (DM) is common in domestic cats (Felis catus). It has been proposed as a model for human Type 2 DM given many shared features. Small case studies demonstrate feline DM also occurs as a result of insulin resistance due to a somatotrophinoma. The current study...

Abstract

Background: Feline hypersomatotropism (HST) is a cause of diabetes mellitus in cats. Pasireotide is a novel multireceptor ligand somatostatin analog that improves biochemical control of humans with HST. Hypothesis/Objectives: Pasireotide improves biochemical control of HST and diabetes mellitus in ...

Abstract

Background: Ghrelin is a growth hormone secretagogue. It is a potent regulator of energy homeostasis. Ghrelin concentration is down-regulated in humans with hypersomatotropism (HS) and increases after successful treatment. Additionally, ghrelin secretion seems impaired in human diabetes mellitus...

Abstract

The aims of the present study were (1) to describe the microscopic and ultrastructural appearance of equine platelet-rich fibrin (PRF) clots and (2) to determine the release and degradation of transforming growth factor beta 1 (TGF-β1) and insulin-like growth factor type I (IGF-I) from PRF clots...

Abstract

The objective of this study was to evaluate three commercially-available human assays for the determination of adiponectin, ghrelin and insulin-like growth factor 1 (IGF-1) concentrations in feline serum samples. Intra- and interassay coefficients of variation were lower than 20%, 15% and 6% for...
