The ability of a guinea pig antibeef/pork insulin serum to neutralize the endogenously secreted insulins of five species of hystricomorph rodents has been studied. Endogenous insulins of the tuco-tuco, casiragua and degu were apparently not neutralized, but endogenous insulins of the cuis and chinchilla did appear to be neutralized.
