Abstract:

The pancreas, an important organ of endocrine research is a digestive gland with both exocrine and endocrine functions. The pancreas for this study was collected from different age groups of large white Yorkshire and desi pigs. The morphometrical parameters such as weight of pancreas, length and width of each lobe and histometrical parameters such as number of islets per lobule, length and width of islets were recorded. The pancreas of pigs consisted of splenic, duodenal and connecting lobes. The mean weight of the pancreas was gradually increased as age advanced. In proportion to body weight and pancreas weight, the length and width of pancreatic lobes were steadily increased from four months of age to adult. The number of islets per lobule was higher in young age groups and then gradually decreased with age. This morphometrical study of pig pancreas can serve as a standard to judge atrophy or hypertrophy of organs in post-mortem diagnosis and for research in pancreas of other species.
