Nineteen cases of histiocytic sarcomas in Pembroke Welsh Corgi were examined histopathologically. Focal or multiple masses were detected in the lung or in regional lymph nodes, or in both lung and nodes. All neoplastic lesions had common histological features characterized by the proliferation of pleomorphic histiocytic cells combined with various inflammatory cells. Most of the pleomorphic neoplastic cells were immunopositive for human leukocyte antigen (HLA)-DR and Iba-1. The median survival time for all dogs was 133 days. In the present study, several prognostic factors, such as gender, age, single or multiple lesions, lymph node involvement at the time of diagnosis, surgical resection status and additional chemotherapy, were examined, although none of these factors approached statistical significance. Histiocytic sarcoma must be considered in the differential diagnosis of dogs with pulmonary masses, especially in the canine breed.

In 2 individual cases of canine mast cell tumors, we identified 2 novel c-KIT mutations in exon 11: a 9-base pair (bp) deletion (c.1663-1671del) and a point mutation (c.1676T>A). The 9-bp deletion mutation caused a loss of 3 amino acids, corresponding to p.Gln555_Lys557del, and the point mutation resulted in the substitution of valine by aspartic acid (p.Val559Asp) in the juxtamembrane domain of the protein. Imatinib mesylate, a therapeutic agent for canine mast cell tumors, was used to treat both tumors. Complete remission was achieved at 33 and 14 days after administration, respectively. However, in both cases, the therapeutic response subsequently tapered with the duration of remission lasting 66 and 255 days, respectively. Although these 2 novel c-KIT mutations in exon11 were not confirmed to be gain-of-function mutations, a further study may help clarify relevance between mutations identified in this report and responsiveness.

Prohibitin is an antiproliferative protein that is a product of a putative tumor suppressor gene. However, there is little information on prohibitins in companion animals. In this study, we cloned canine prohibitin mRNA using RT-PCR and 3′-RACE (Rapid Amplification of cDNA Ends). The sequence was well conserved compared with those of other mammals, including human. The deduced amino acid sequence translated from the open reading frame completely corresponded to the human sequence. Canine prohibitin mRNA was expressed in all normal mammary and tumor samples examined. These results suggest that this protein plays a vital role in cell growth mechanisms and may be related to the occurrence of canine mammary tumors.
