Update on oral tumours in bovine
Dr. Sandeep Kumar, RN Chaudhary, Ram Niwas and Dinesh
Bovine tumour are of great concern as they may cause economic losses due to negative impact on productivity, animal health and thus may reduce profit to individual farmer and dairy industry. Tumours of odontogenic origin in domestic animals are rare but common in bovine and difficult for accurate diagnosis. Histopathology and immunohistochemistry is helpful to confirm the type of tumour and also to know the oncogene responsible for the cause. Unlike humans, evolution and application of advanced diagnostic techniques for early detection of tumour in animals have rarely been attempted except canine mammary gland tumour. Early diagnosis of tumours in bovine and research on molecular characterization of neoplastic cells will be of clinical help to take corrective or remedial measures for prevention and to find early assessment of cancer therapies in bovine.
