Octreotide (SMS 201-995) in the treatment of metastatic glucagonoma: report of one case and review of the literature

, : Octreotide (SMS 201-995) in the treatment of metastatic glucagonoma: report of one case and review of the literature. Digestion 42(2): 116-120

We report 1 patient with a necrolytic migratory erythema, a high plasma glucagon concentration and a metastatic pancreatic endocrine tumor who has now been treated effectively for 33 months with the somatostatin analogue octreotide (SMS 201-995) (400 micrograms/day). The results of SMS 201-995 in the treatment of glucagonoma syndrome are reviewed.

Mechanisms of plant root tolerance to high temperatures through antioxidant defense are not well understood. The objective of this study was to investigate whether superior root thermotolerance of heat-tolerant Agrostis scabra relative to its cong...

Resting state fMRI (rs-fMRI) is commonly used to study the brain's intrinsic neural coupling, which reveals specific spatiotemporal patterns in the form of resting state networks (RSNs). It has been hypothesized that slow rs-fMRI oscillations...
