- A retrospective analysis of 111 canine prostatic samples: histopathological findings and classification
School of Veterinary Science, The University of Queensland, Gatton Campus, Gatton, Queensland 4343, Australia Electronic address
Res Vet Sci 97:568-73. 2014
..The awareness of the unusual patterns might be critical in avoiding diagnostic misinterpretation. The high prevalence of PIA and HGPIN underlines the reasonable chance of their detection in routine biopsy specimens. ..
- Immunohistochemical expression of HOXA-13 in normal, hyperplastic and neoplastic canine prostatic tissue
School of Veterinary Science, University of Queensland, Gatton Campus, Gatton 4343, Queensland, Australia Electronic address
J Comp Pathol 149:417-23. 2013
..3 (±5.25) compared with normal (2 ± 0.71) and hyperplastic prostates (6.08 ± 2.21). The increase in HOXA13 expression in canine PCs suggests the involvement of this transcription factor in carcinogenesis and promotion of tumour growth...
- Multiple congenital malformations in a dicephalic spur-thighed tortoise (Testudo graeca ibera)
Department of Comparative Biomedical Sciences, Faculty of Veterinary Medicine, University of Teramo, Teramo, Italy
J Comp Pathol 149:368-71. 2013
..Other malformations included pyloric valve atresia of the left stomach, focal stenosis of the transverse colon and liver hypoplasia. Dicephalism rarely occurs in Testudinidae and its pathogenesis, still unclear, is discussed. ..
- Use of electron microscopy to classify canine perivascular wall tumors
Veterinary Pathology Division, Department of Comparative Biomedical Sciences, Faculty of Veterinary Medicine, University of Teramo, Italy
Vet Pathol 50:226-33. 2013
..The hypothesis that a subgroup of PWTs could arise from a pluripotent mesenchymal perivascular wall cell was also considered and may explain the diverse differentiation of canine PWTs...

..Moreover, few scattered CK5+ cells in AR+CK8/18+ tumors identified the existence of intermediate cells, from which neoplastic transformation may alternatively commence. ..
- Leishmania amastigotes in neoplastic cells of 3 nonhistiocytic canine tumors
Faculty of Veterinary Medicine, Department of Comparative Biomedicine and Food Science, Viale dell Universita 16, Legnaro, Italy
Vet Pathol 50:749-52. 2013
..Leishmania amastigotes were detected by light and transmission electron microscopy and immunohistochemistry in a fibrosarcoma, a T-cell lymphoma, and an adrenocortical adenoma. ..
- Heat shock protein 90 is associated with hyperplasia and neoplastic transformation of canine prostatic epithelial cells
School of Veterinary Science, University of Queensland, Gatton Campus, Gatton 4343, Queensland, Australia
J Comp Pathol 150:393-8. 2014
..Increased HSP90 expression in canine PCs suggests the involvement of this molecule in carcinogenesis and tumour progression, supporting HSP90 as a potential target for therapeutic intervention. ..
