• Vascular researchers from around the globe will lecture on how blood vessels influence their environment and thereby regulate important processes in the body. (dkfz.de)
  • The researchers will give talks about the signaling molecules that regulate the function of blood vessels and the chemical messengers that the vascular wall cells use to communicate among each other or to influence their environment. (dkfz.de)
  • Forces that are associated with blood flow are major determinants of vascular morphogenesis and physiology. (semanticscholar.org)
  • With those ideas in mind, Mammoto and Ingber, who also directs the Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering at Harvard, examined the relationship between vascular permeability-how "leaky" blood vessels are-and tissue stiffness, initially by growing endothelial cells on polyacrylamide gels of varying stiffness. (childrenshospital.org)
  • Soooooo, since blood vessels in rosacea are worn on the outside of the body where they are easily attacked with vascular lesion lasers, the benefit here is reletively small. (irosacea.org)
  • small blood vessels that branch from the arteries and transport blood from the heart to the body tissues. (answers.com)
  • Professor Mangoni, who returns to Flinders after three years at the University of Aberdeen, will continue to work collaboratively with his former workplace to test drugs developed by one of his PhD students to regulate the way the body handles nitric oxide - an essential molecule which controls blood vessel function, growth and the delivery of oxygen and nutrients across organs and tissues.

  • Just like Goldilocks wouldn't eat porridge that was too hot or too cold, blood vessels won't grow properly in tissues that are too stiff or too loose. (childrenshospital.org)
  • Recently, he and a member of his research staff, Akiko Mammoto, MD, PhD , discovered that by changing the stiffness of the surrounding tissues-not too loose and not too tight- they could keep blood vessels from leaking. (childrenshospital.org)
  • Further topics covered at the meeting will be the influence of metabolic factors on blood vessels, the influence of blood vessels on the development of individual organs and how blood vessels interfere with the pathogenic processes of atherosclerosis and diabetes and even promote the spread of cancer. (dkfz.de)
  • By narrowing the passage in the blood vessels, blood flows more slowly to the organs and the extremities. (livestrong.com)
  • We sought to determine the potential ultrastructural alterations in large blood vessels induced by a high fat and fructose diet (HFD) in a rat model of prediabetes. (conicyt.cl)
  • It talked about breakthrough treatments for macular degeneration which in the its severe form is abnormal blood vessels leaking fluid in the back of the eye. (irosacea.org)
  • The network of scientists in the Collaborative Research Centre (SFB) Transregio 23 is in its 12th year of studying the influences that regulate the cells of the vessel wall. (dkfz.de)
  • The vessels in both the over-LOXed and the BAPN-treated animals were leaky, and their endothelial cells did not form tight junctions. (childrenshospital.org)
  • Blood vessels that lead from the heart that are high in oxygen and nutrients have their first branch off the aorta that goes to these blood vessels. (answers.com)
  • Tubes that carry blood to and from all parts of your body. (nih.gov)
  • It is undisputed by now that the blood vessels are much more than tubes for the blood and that the function of the vessel wall reaches far beyond that of a mere passive barrier," says SFB coordinator Hellmut Augustin from the German Cancer Research Center (DKFZ) and the Medical Faculty Mannheim of Heidelberg University. (dkfz.de)
  • Caffeine is able to reduce the size of the blood vessels, forcing the blood out of them and reducing the pain. (livestrong.com)
  • What are the parts of the blood vessels and its function? (answers.com)
