Journal of Nuclear Medicine : Official Publication, Socie... Imperiale A, Boursier C et. al.

Jul 18th, 2021 - To assess the value of 68Ga-DOTATOC and carbidopa-assisted 18F-DOPA in 21 hypoglycaemic patients. Methods: All patients who underwent 68Ga-DOTATOC and/or carbidopa-assisted 18F-DOPA PET/CT for suspicion of insulinoma from January 2019 to January 2...

Glucagon-like Peptide-1 Receptor as Emerging Target: Will It Make It to the Clinic?
Journal of Nuclear Medicine : Official Publication, Socie... Wild D, Antwi K et. al.

Jul 8th, 2021 - The glucagon-like peptide-1 receptor (GLP-1R) is an emerging target due to its high expression in benign insulinomas as well as in islet cell hypertrophia/hyperplasia (nesidioblastosis) and pancreatic β-cells. In 2008, occult insulinomas were loca...

Live Enterovirus Vaccine and Type 1 Diabetes

Nov 11th, 2016 - Enteroviruses have been associated with type 1 diabetes in several studies. Enterovirus infections may either increase or decrease the risk of type 1 diabetes depending on the age of infection and the type of enterovirus in question. There is rema...

68Ga-NOTA-exendin-4 PET/CT for the Localization of Insulinoma and Diagnosis of Nesidioblastosis

Sep 25th, 2015 - 68Ga-NOTA-exendin-4 is an optimal probe targeting GLP-1R. The investigators will determine the use of 68Ga-NOTA-exendin-4 PET/CT in the detection of insulinomas, and to compare its diagnostic value with conventional imaging. GLP-1R imaging, specif...

Laparoscopy to Remove Pancreatic Tumors (Insulinomas)

Mar 4th, 2008 - Patients with the clinical diagnosis of hypoglycemia secondary to a putative insulin secreting pancreatic neuroendocrine tumor require accurate localization of the tumor and definitive surgical resection. Non-invasive pre-operative imaging studies...

EUS-guided Ethanol Ablation of an Insulinoma

As the major insulinomas are functioning islet cell tumors, surgical resection is currently first-line therapy for or treatment of insulinomas. However, the surgical resection of pancreatic neoplasm is conditional for specific patients and may be ...

Mystery hypoglycemia case highlights troublesome diagnosis
MDedge Endocrinology; Randy Dotinga

May 11th, 2019 - LOS ANGELES – The 69-year-old woman with a history of type 2 diabetes had persistent hypoglycemia despite treatment with hydrocortisone, dextrose, and glucagon. Doctors in South Carolina worried about insulinoma and planned to launch an intra-arte.

Clinical Challenges - February 2018 What's your diagnosis?

Feb 2nd, 2018 - The diagnosis: Metastatic insulinoma surrounded by steatotic hepatocytes The loss of L-FABP expression in steatotic hepatocytes is the hallmark of HNF1alpha-inactivated liver adenoma,1 and clearly suggested this diagnosis. However, the emergence o.

Genomic Diversity Clouds Outlook for Neuroendocrine Tumors

Sep 8th, 2016 - Despite a spate of therapeutic advances in recent years, neuroendocrine (NET) tumors remain a poorly investigated collection of cancers whose rarity has limited clinical trial enrollment. Now, genome sequencing studies are providing clues for ther...

High-dose oral insulin offers immunotherapy hope against type 1 diabetes
Clinical Endocrinology News; Bianca Nogrady

Apr 21st, 2015 - High-dose oral insulin induces an immune response in children at high risk of developing type 1 diabetes but without causing hypoglycemia or triggering immune responses typical of type 1 diabetes, a pilot study showed. Children aged 2-7 with a fam.

Oral Insulin May Thwart Type 1 Diabetes in High-Risk Kids

Apr 21st, 2015 - In the Pre-POINT pilot study, five of six children who were at extremely high risk of developing type 1 diabetes and who received a high dose of oral insulin had a protective immune response, and the insulin did not cause hypoglycemia. "These find...
