Los insulinomas son tumores neuroendocrinos pancreaticos (TNEP), generalmente benignos y de pequeno tamano, caracterizados por el sindrome de hipersecrecion de insulina con el desarrollo de hipoglucemia.
Our group studied cleaved caspase-3 immunostaining in 37 cases of pancreatic endocrine tumors (PETs) [38]: Among 15 cases of insulinomas, five cases were positive, and 10 cases were negative for cleaved caspase-3 (67%).
About one-half of pancreatic NETs are functioning tumors, and insulinomas are the most common, followed, in order of frequency, by glucagonomas, gastrinomas, and somatostatinomas.
Los insulinomas son los TNEP funcionantes mas frecuentes, con una incidencia reportada de 4 casos por millon de habitantes por ano, con un pico de incidencia especifica en la quinta decada de la vida y con una leve predileccion por el sexo femenino (4).
The most common functioning Pan NETs are insulinomas and gastrinomas, named after the hormones they secrete.
When NETs produce symptoms, through secreting hormones, they may also be referred to by different names, eg insulinomas are NETs in the pancreas that cause excessive insulin production.
111]In octreotide scintigraphy is highly dependent on the histological subtype of the tumor, ranging from 46% for insulinomas to 100% for glucagonomas, (3) causing false-negatives to occur in a significant proportion, especially in MEN-1 patients who present numerous lesions.
Two types of beta cells from insulinomas of mouse, one of which knocked out for insulin-like growth factor-II (IGF-II), a factor that promotes cancer cell proliferation and survival, are used for experimental evolution in vitro.
M2 PHARMA-August 7, 2014-Chinese study shows Chromogranin A is reliable serum diagnostic biomarker for PNETs but not for insulinomas
The sensitivity is reduced if there is a lack of SSTR2 expression, as is seen in poorly differentiated NETs and insulinomas.
Although insulinomas are very rare tumors, they are the most common functioning pancreatic neuroendocrine neoplasms (1), (2).
