Tuberculosis, Lymph Node
White blood cells formed in the body's lymphoid tissue. The nucleus is round or ovoid with coarse, irregularly clumped chromatin while the cytoplasm is typically pale blue with azurophilic (if any) granules. Most lymphocytes can be classified as either T or B (with subpopulations of each), or NATURAL KILLER CELLS.
Specialized cells of the hematopoietic system that have branch-like extensions. They are found throughout the lymphatic system, and in non-lymphoid tissues such as SKIN and the epithelia of the intestinal, respiratory, and reproductive tracts. They trap and process ANTIGENS, and present them to T-CELLS, thereby stimulating CELL-MEDIATED IMMUNITY. They are different from the non-hematopoietic FOLLICULAR DENDRITIC CELLS, which have a similar morphology and immune system function, but with respect to humoral immunity (ANTIBODY PRODUCTION).
Lymphocytes responsible for cell-mediated immunity. Two types have been identified - cytotoxic (T-LYMPHOCYTES, CYTOTOXIC) and helper T-lymphocytes (T-LYMPHOCYTES, HELPER-INDUCER). They are formed when lymphocytes circulate through the THYMUS GLAND and differentiate to thymocytes. When exposed to an antigen, they divide rapidly and produce large numbers of new T cells sensitized to that antigen.
Carcinoma, Squamous Cell
A malignant neoplasm derived from cells that are capable of forming melanin, which may occur in the skin of any part of the body, in the eye, or, rarely, in the mucous membranes of the genitalia, anus, oral cavity, or other sites. It occurs mostly in adults and may originate de novo or from a pigmented nevus or malignant lentigo. Melanomas frequently metastasize widely, and the regional lymph nodes, liver, lungs, and brain are likely to be involved. The incidence of malignant skin melanomas is rising rapidly in all parts of the world. (Stedman, 25th ed; from Rook et al., Textbook of Dermatology, 4th ed, p2445)
Tumor Markers, Biological
Molecular products metabolized and secreted by neoplastic tissue and characterized biochemically in cells or body fluids. They are indicators of tumor stage and grade as well as useful for monitoring responses to treatment and predicting recurrence. Many chemical groups are represented including hormones, antigens, amino and nucleic acids, enzymes, polyamines, and specific cell membrane proteins and lipids.
Dissection in the neck to remove all disease tissues including cervical LYMPH NODES and to leave an adequate margin of normal tissue. This type of surgery is usually used in tumors or cervical metastases in the head and neck. The prototype of neck dissection is the radical neck dissection described by Crile in 1906.
Morphologic alteration of small B LYMPHOCYTES or T LYMPHOCYTES in culture into large blast-like cells able to synthesize DNA and RNA and to divide mitotically. It is induced by INTERLEUKINS; MITOGENS such as PHYTOHEMAGGLUTININS, and by specific ANTIGENS. It may also occur in vivo as in GRAFT REJECTION.

Carcinoma, Ductal, Breast
Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor C
A vascular endothelial growth factor that specifically binds to VASCULAR ENDOTHELIAL GROWTH FACTOR RECEPTOR-2 and VASCULAR ENDOTHELIAL GROWTH FACTOR RECEPTOR-3. In addition to being an angiogenic factor it can act on LYMPHATIC VESSELS to stimulate LYMPHANGIOGENESIS. It is similar in structure to VASCULAR ENDOTHELIAL GROWTH FACTOR D in that they both contain N- and C-terminal extensions that were not found in other VEGF family members.
Giant Lymph Node Hyperplasia
A class of statistical procedures for estimating the survival function (function of time, starting with a population 100% well at a given time and providing the percentage of the population still well at later times). The survival analysis is then used for making inferences about the effects of treatments, prognostic factors, exposures, and other covariates on the function.
Technetium Tc 99m Sulfur Colloid
A critical subpopulation of T-lymphocytes involved in the induction of most immunological functions. The HIV virus has selective tropism for the T4 cell which expresses the CD4 phenotypic marker, a receptor for HIV. In fact, the key element in the profound immunosuppression seen in HIV infection is the depletion of this subset of T-lymphocytes.
Predictive Value of Tests
In screening and diagnostic tests, the probability that a person with a positive test is a true positive (i.e., has the disease), is referred to as the predictive value of a positive test; whereas, the predictive value of a negative test is the probability that the person with a negative test does not have the disease. Predictive value is related to the sensitivity and specificity of the test.
Technique using an instrument system for making, processing, and displaying one or more measurements on individual cells obtained from a cell suspension. Cells are usually stained with one or more fluorescent dyes specific to cell components of interest, e.g., DNA, and fluorescence of each cell is measured as it rapidly transverses the excitation beam (laser or mercury arc lamp). Fluorescence provides a quantitative measure of various biochemical and biophysical properties of the cell, as well as a basis for cell sorting. Other measurable optical parameters include light absorption and light scattering, the latter being applicable to the measurement of cell size, shape, density, granularity, and stain uptake.
Reverse Transcriptase Polymerase Chain Reaction
Recirculating, dendritic, antigen-presenting cells containing characteristic racket-shaped granules (Birbeck granules). They are found principally in the stratum spinosum of the EPIDERMIS and are rich in Class II MAJOR HISTOCOMPATIBILITY COMPLEX molecules. Langerhans cells were the first dendritic cell to be described and have been a model of study for other dendritic cells (DCs), especially other migrating DCs such as dermal DCs and INTERSTITIAL DENDRITIC CELLS.
False Negative Reactions
A infiltrating (invasive) breast cancer, relatively uncommon, accounting for only 5%-10% of breast tumors in most series. It is often an area of ill-defined thickening in the breast, in contrast to the dominant lump characteristic of ductal carcinoma. It is typically composed of small cells in a linear arrangement with a tendency to grow around ducts and lobules. There is likelihood of axillary nodal involvement with metastasis to meningeal and serosal surfaces. (DeVita Jr et al., Cancer: Principles & Practice of Oncology, 3d ed, p1205)
A single, unpaired primary lymphoid organ situated in the MEDIASTINUM, extending superiorly into the neck to the lower edge of the THYROID GLAND and inferiorly to the fourth costal cartilage. It is necessary for normal development of immunologic function early in life. By puberty, it begins to involute and much of the tissue is replaced by fat.
Head and Neck Neoplasms
Soft tissue tumors or cancer arising from the mucosal surfaces of the LIP; oral cavity; PHARYNX; LARYNX; and cervical esophagus. Other sites included are the NOSE and PARANASAL SINUSES; SALIVARY GLANDS; THYROID GLAND and PARATHYROID GLANDS; and MELANOMA and non-melanoma skin cancers of the head and neck. (from Holland et al., Cancer Medicine, 4th ed, p1651)
An imaging technique using compounds labelled with short-lived positron-emitting radionuclides (such as carbon-11, nitrogen-13, oxygen-15 and fluorine-18) to measure cell metabolism. It has been useful in study of soft tissues such as CANCER; CARDIOVASCULAR SYSTEM; and brain. SINGLE-PHOTON EMISSION-COMPUTED TOMOGRAPHY is closely related to positron emission tomography, but uses isotopes with longer half-lives and resolution is lower.
Combined Modality Therapy
RNA sequences that serve as templates for protein synthesis. Bacterial mRNAs are generally primary transcripts in that they do not require post-transcriptional processing. Eukaryotic mRNA is synthesized in the nucleus and must be exported to the cytoplasm for translation. Most eukaryotic mRNAs have a sequence of polyadenylic acid at the 3' end, referred to as the poly(A) tail. The function of this tail is not known for certain, but it may play a role in the export of mature mRNA from the nucleus as well as in helping stabilize some mRNA molecules by retarding their degradation in the cytoplasm.
Disease Models, Animal
A nonparametric method of compiling LIFE TABLES or survival tables. It combines calculated probabilities of survival and estimates to allow for observations occurring beyond a measurement threshold, which are assumed to occur randomly. Time intervals are defined as ending each time an event occurs and are therefore unequal. (From Last, A Dictionary of Epidemiology, 1995)
Differentiation antigens residing on mammalian leukocytes. CD stands for cluster of differentiation, which refers to groups of monoclonal antibodies that show similar reactivity with certain subpopulations of antigens of a particular lineage or differentiation stage. The subpopulations of antigens are also known by the same CD designation.
The specific failure of a normally responsive individual to make an immune response to a known antigen. It results from previous contact with the antigen by an immunologically immature individual (fetus or neonate) or by an adult exposed to extreme high-dose or low-dose antigen, or by exposure to radiation, antimetabolites, antilymphocytic serum, etc.
The compound is given by intravenous injection to do POSITRON-EMISSION TOMOGRAPHY for the assessment of cerebral and myocardial glucose metabolism in various physiological or pathological states including stroke and myocardial ischemia. It is also employed for the detection of malignant tumors including those of the brain, liver, and thyroid gland. (From Martindale, The Extra Pharmacopoeia, 30th ed, p1162)
Deliberate stimulation of the host's immune response. ACTIVE IMMUNIZATION involves administration of ANTIGENS or IMMUNOLOGIC ADJUVANTS. PASSIVE IMMUNIZATION involves administration of IMMUNE SERA or LYMPHOCYTES or their extracts (e.g., transfer factor, immune RNA) or transplantation of immunocompetent cell producing tissue (thymus or bone marrow).
Non-antibody proteins secreted by inflammatory leukocytes and some non-leukocytic cells, that act as intercellular mediators. They differ from classical hormones in that they are produced by a number of tissue or cell types rather than by specialized glands. They generally act locally in a paracrine or autocrine rather than endocrine manner.
Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor D
A vascular endothelial growth factor that specifically binds to VASCULAR ENDOTHELIAL GROWTH FACTOR RECEPTOR-2 and VASCULAR ENDOTHELIAL GROWTH FACTOR RECEPTOR-3. In addition to being an angiogenic factor it can act on LYMPHATIC VESSELS to stimulate LYMPHANGIOGENESIS. It is similar in structure to VASCULAR ENDOTHELIAL GROWTH FACTOR C in that they both contain N- and C-terminal extensions that were not found in other VEGF family members.
Polymerase Chain Reaction
In vitro method for producing large amounts of specific DNA or RNA fragments of defined length and sequence from small amounts of short oligonucleotide flanking sequences (primers). The essential steps include thermal denaturation of the double-stranded target molecules, annealing of the primers to their complementary sequences, and extension of the annealed primers by enzymatic synthesis with DNA polymerase. The reaction is efficient, specific, and extremely sensitive. Uses for the reaction include disease diagnosis, detection of difficult-to-isolate pathogens, mutation analysis, genetic testing, DNA sequencing, and analyzing evolutionary relationships.
Gene Expression Regulation, Neoplastic
Ultrasonography of internal organs using an ultrasound transducer sometimes mounted on a fiberoptic endoscope. In endosonography the transducer converts electronic signals into acoustic pulses or continuous waves and acts also as a receiver to detect reflected pulses from within the organ. An audiovisual-electronic interface converts the detected or processed echo signals, which pass through the electronics of the instrument, into a form that the technologist can evaluate. The procedure should not be confused with ENDOSCOPY which employs a special instrument called an endoscope. The "endo-" of endosonography refers to the examination of tissue within hollow organs, with reference to the usual ultrasonography procedure which is performed externally or transcutaneously.
A class of fibrous proteins or scleroproteins that represents the principal constituent of EPIDERMIS; HAIR; NAILS; horny tissues, and the organic matrix of tooth ENAMEL. Two major conformational groups have been characterized, alpha-keratin, whose peptide backbone forms a coiled-coil alpha helical structure consisting of TYPE I KERATIN and a TYPE II KERATIN, and beta-keratin, whose backbone forms a zigzag or pleated sheet structure. alpha-Keratins have been classified into at least 20 subtypes. In addition multiple isoforms of subtypes have been found which may be due to GENE DUPLICATION.
Mice, Inbred Strains
Genetically identical individuals developed from brother and sister matings which have been carried out for twenty or more generations, or by parent x offspring matings carried out with certain restrictions. All animals within an inbred strain trace back to a common ancestor in the twentieth generation.
The soft tissue filling the cavities of bones. Bone marrow exists in two types, yellow and red. Yellow marrow is found in the large cavities of large bones and consists mostly of fat cells and a few primitive blood cells. Red marrow is a hematopoietic tissue and is the site of production of erythrocytes and granular leukocytes. Bone marrow is made up of a framework of connective tissue containing branching fibers with the frame being filled with marrow cells.
Receptors, Lymphocyte Homing
Cell surface glycoproteins on lymphocytes and other leukocytes that mediate adhesion to specialized blood vessels called high endothelial venules. Several different classes of lymphocyte homing receptors have been identified, and they appear to target different surface molecules (addressins) on high endothelial venules in different tissues. The adhesion plays a crucial role in the trafficking of lymphocytes.
A malignant disease characterized by progressive enlargement of the lymph nodes, spleen, and general lymphoid tissue. In the classical variant, giant usually multinucleate Hodgkin's and REED-STERNBERG CELLS are present; in the nodular lymphocyte predominant variant, lymphocytic and histiocytic cells are seen.
The passage of viable bacteria from the GASTROINTESTINAL TRACT to extra-intestinal sites, such as the mesenteric lymph node complex, liver, spleen, kidney, and blood. Factors that promote bacterial translocation include overgrowth with gram-negative enteric bacilli, impaired host immune defenses, and injury to the INTESTINAL MUCOSA resulting in increased intestinal permeability. Bacterial translocation from the lung to the circulation is also possible and sometimes accompanies MECHANICAL VENTILATION.
Cell surface glycoproteins that bind to chemokines and thus mediate the migration of pro-inflammatory molecules. The receptors are members of the seven-transmembrane G protein-coupled receptor family. Like the CHEMOKINES themselves, the receptors can be divided into at least three structural branches: CR, CCR, and CXCR, according to variations in a shared cysteine motif.
Specialized forms of antibody-producing B-LYMPHOCYTES. They synthesize and secrete immunoglobulin. They are found only in lymphoid organs and at sites of immune responses and normally do not circulate in the blood or lymph. (Rosen et al., Dictionary of Immunology, 1989, p169 & Abbas et al., Cellular and Molecular Immunology, 2d ed, p20)
The process by which antigen is presented to lymphocytes in a form they can recognize. This is performed by antigen presenting cells (APCs). Some antigens require processing before they can be recognized. Antigen processing consists of ingestion and partial digestion of the antigen by the APC, followed by presentation of fragments on the cell surface. (From Rosen et al., Dictionary of Immunology, 1989)
Mastectomy, Modified Radical
Serum Albumin, Radio-Iodinated
Proportional Hazards Models
Specific proteins found in or on cells of progesterone target tissues that specifically combine with progesterone. The cytosol progesterone-receptor complex then associates with the nucleic acids to initiate protein synthesis. There are two kinds of progesterone receptors, A and B. Both are induced by estrogen and have short half-lives.
Proteins whose abnormal expression (gain or loss) are associated with the development, growth, or progression of NEOPLASMS. Some neoplasm proteins are tumor antigens (ANTIGENS, NEOPLASM), i.e. they induce an immune reaction to their tumor. Many neoplasm proteins have been characterized and are used as tumor markers (BIOMARKERS, TUMOR) when they are detectable in cells and body fluids as monitors for the presence or growth of tumors. Abnormal expression of ONCOGENE PROTEINS is involved in neoplastic transformation, whereas the loss of expression of TUMOR SUPPRESSOR PROTEINS is involved with the loss of growth control and progression of the neoplasm.
Reproducibility of Results
The statistical reproducibility of measurements (often in a clinical context), including the testing of instrumentation or techniques to obtain reproducible results. The concept includes reproducibility of physiological measurements, which may be used to develop rules to assess probability or prognosis, or response to a stimulus; reproducibility of occurrence of a condition; and reproducibility of experimental results.
Lymph and pulmonary response to isobaric reduction in plasma oncotic pressure in baboons. (1/833)Plasma colloid osmotic pressure was reduced by 76% (from 19.6 +/- 0.6 to 4.7 +/- 1.5 mm Hg) in five baboons while pulmonary capillary hydrostatic pressure was maintained at a normal level. This resulted in fluid retention, weight gain, peripheral edema and ascites, but no pulmonary edema. Thoracic duct lymph flow increased 6-fold and pulmonary lymph flow 7-fold. Thoracic duct lymph had a lower colloid osmotic pressure (2.0 +/- 0.7 mm Hg) than plasma (4.7 +/- 1.5 mm Hg), whereas the colloid osmotic pressure of pulmonary lymph (4.7 +/- 0.7 mm Hg) was the same as that of plasma. The lymph-plasma ratio for albumin fell in thoracic duct lymph but remained unchanged in pulmonary lymph. The difference between plasma colloid osmotic pressure and pulmonary artery wedge pressure decreased from 15.3 +/- 1.9 to -0.7 +/- 2.9 mm Hg. Despite this increase in filtration force, the lungs were protected from edema formation by a decrease of 11 mm Hg in pulmonary interstitial colloid osmotic pressure and a 7-fold increase in lymph flow.

An isolated perfused rat lung preparation. (2/833)An isolated perfused rat lung preparation (IPL) is described and its physiologic status is evaluated. The evaluation includes light and electron microscopy after perfusion and estimations of substrate utilization. ATP content, lactate production, and incorporation of glucose carbons into lipids and CO2. It is concluded that the IPL is useful for short-term metabolic and physiologic experiments and offers some unique advantages in evaluating effects of reactive gases upon lung function. (+info)
Role of L-selectin in physiological manifestations after burn and smoke inhalation injury in sheep. (3/833)The effects of a monoclonal antibody against L-selectin [leukocyte adhesion molecule (LAM)1-3] on microvascular fluid flux were determined in conscious sheep subjected to a combined injury of 40% third-degree burn and smoke inhalation. This combined injury induced a rapid increase in systemic prefemoral lymph flow (sQlymph) from the burned area and a delayed-onset increase in lung lymph flow. The initial increase in sQlymph was associated with an elevation of the lymph-to-plasma oncotic pressure ratio; consequently, it leads to a predominant increase in the systemic soft tissue permeability index (sPI). In an untreated control group, the increased sPI was sustained beyond 24 h after injury. Pretreatment with LAM1-3 resulted in earlier recovery from the increased sPI, although the initial responses in sQlymph and sPI were identical to those in the nontreatment group. The delayed-onset lung permeability changes were significantly attenuated by pretreatment with LAM1-3. These findings indicate that both leukocyte-dependent and -independent mechanisms are involved in the pathogenesis that occurs after combined injury with burn and smoke inhalation. (+info)
Transport of colloidal particles in lymphatics and vasculature after subcutaneous injection. (4/833)This study was designed to determine the transport of subcutaneously injected viral-size colloid particles into the lymph and the vascular system in the hind leg of the dog. Transport of two colloid particles, with average size approximately 1 and 0.41 microm, respectively, and with and without leg rotation, was tested. Leg rotation serves to enhance the lymph flow rates. The right femoral vein, lymph vessel, and left femoral artery were cannulated while the animal was under anesthesia, and samples were collected at regular intervals after subcutaneous injection of the particles at the right knee level. The number of particles in the samples were counted under fluorescence microscopy by using a hemocytometer. With and without leg rotation, both particle sets were rapidly taken up into the venous blood and into the lymph fluid. The number of particles carried away from the injection site within the first 5 min was <5% of the injected pool. Particles were also seen in arterial blood samples; this suggests reflow and a prolonged residence time in the blood. These results show that particles the size of viruses are rapidly taken up into the lymphatics and blood vessels after subcutaneous deposition. (+info)
Human follicular dendritic cells remain uninfected and capture human immunodeficiency virus type 1 through CD54-CD11a interaction. (5/833)It has been reported that human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1) bound to follicular dendritic cells (FDCs) remains highly infectious to CD4(+) T cells even when it forms immune complexes with neutralizing antibody (HIV-1/IC). To elucidate the role of FDCs in HIV-1 transmission to CD4(+) T cells in lymph nodes, we have isolated and purified FDCs from human tonsils and examined whether the HIV-1/IC trapped on their surface is infectious to CD4(+) T cells. To our surprise, not the HIV-1/IC but the antibody-free HIV-1 on FDCs could be transmitted to CD4(+) T cells. Furthermore, in contrast to previous studies showing that FDCs are productively infected with HIV-1, the present study clearly demonstrated that FDCs were not the target cells for HIV-1 infection. FDCs could capture the viral particles on their surface; however, the binding of HIV-1 to FDCs was strongly inhibited by the presence of anti-CD54 (ICAM-1) monoclonal antibody (MAb) and anti-CD11a (LFA-1) MAb, suggesting that the adhesion molecules play an important role in the interaction between HIV-1 and FDCs. (+info)
Intracerebroventricular injection of TNF-alpha promotes sleep and is recovered in cervical lymph. (6/833)Recent studies have shown that the central nervous system (CNS) communicates with the periphery by the drainage of cerebrospinal fluid and brain interstitial fluid into blood and lymph. We hypothesized that tumor necrosis factor (TNF)-alpha would not only influence the CNS by promoting sleep but also would be directly transmitted into the peripheral immune system. Five hundred nanograms of 125I-labeled TNF-alpha were injected into the lateral ventricles of the brain of six sheep and sampled in venous blood and cervical and prescapular lymph every 30 min for 6 h. 125I-TNF-alpha was measured in lymph nodes and control fat, skin, and muscle tissues 6 h postinjection. 125I-TNF-alpha was detected in the cervical lymphatics within the first 30 min and peaked within 2-3 h. 125I-TNF-alpha counts were elevated in the nodes of the head and neck region. Polysomnographic recordings of four animals showed that TNF-alpha induced a significant increase in slow-wave sleep at postinjection hours 4 and 5. CNS TNF-alpha and its direct drainage into the lymphatic system may influence both the sleeping/waking brain and peripheral immune functions. (+info)
The standard peritoneal permeability analysis in the rabbit: a longitudinal model for peritoneal dialysis. (7/833)OBJECTIVE: The development of an experimental peritoneal dialysis (PD) model in rabbits to investigate peritoneal transport characteristics during a longitudinal follow-up and to assess normal values of these peritoneal transport parameters. DESIGN: Peritoneal transport parameters were determined in conscious, unrestrained rabbits by standard peritoneal permeability analysis adjusted for rabbits (SPAR). In this test a 1-hour dwell with 3.86% glucose dialysate is used. Dextran 70 (1g/L) was added to the dialysate to allow calculation of fluid kinetics. Dialysate samples were taken before, 10, and 40 minutes after instillation and at the end of the dwell. Blood was drawn at the end of the dwell. EXPERIMENTAL ANIMALS: Eighteen female New Zealand White rabbits (2565 g) were included for catheter implantation. SPARs were performed in 15 animals; the other 3 were excluded due to complications. MAIN OUTCOME: The mass transfer area coefficients (MTACs) of the low molecular weight solutes urea (MTAC(urea)) and creatinine (MTACcr) were calculated. The clearances of albumin (CIalb) and IgG (CI(IgG)), glucose absorption, and fluid transport were computed. Coefficients of intraindividual variation (Vc) were calculated for these parameters. RESULTS: The main complications were catheter obstruction and/or dislocation. Five rabbits underwent uncomplicated PD during a 4-week period. Fifteen SPARs in 15 stable rabbits were performed and analyzed to obtain normal values. Means and standard deviations of the transport parameters were as follows: MTAC(urea) 2.24+/-0.57 mL/min, MTACcr 1.61+/-0.30 mU/min, CI(alb) 52.9+/-17.2 microL/min, CI(IgG) 44.5+/-22.9 UL/min. The transcapillary ultrafiltration rate was 0.66+/-0.13 mL/min and the lymphatic absorption rate 0.47+/-0.26 mL/min. The parameters of solute transport were upscaled to those in humans using two different methods. MTACs of low molecular weight solutes in rabbits and patients were of the same order of magnitude, but the clearance of albumin was approximately four times higher in rabbits than in patients, and that of IgG eight times. In all rabbits sieving of sodium was observed. The dialysate/plasma (D/P) of sodium decreased to a minimum at 40 min (p<0.003 vs the initial value), followed by a rise to 60 min. The minimal value was 0.884+/-0.002. The coefficients of variation calculated on 7 rabbits that underwent two or more SPARs were similar to those assessed from the patient data. This indicates stability of the model and reproducibility of the SPAR. CONCLUSION: The conscious rabbit model for PD can be used for repeated studies on peritoneal transport. (+info)
Contamination of lymph from the major prenodal cardiac lymphatic in dogs. (8/833)Cannulation of the canine major prenodal cardiac lymphatic (MPCL) is the most common approach for the investigation of myocardial lymphatic function. However, the assumption that the MPCL drains pure cardiac lymph has been questioned. We studied variations of MPCL anatomy and investigated whether noncardiac lymph is drained by this lymphatic. After dye was injected into the lungs and left ventricular myocardium in 21 dogs, dissection of the cardiac lymphatic system yielded 3 anatomic variations. In variations 1 and 2 (81% of dogs), a mixture of cardiac and pulmonary lymph was drained via the MPCL. In variation 3 (19% of dogs) no connection was found between MPCL and pulmonary lymphatics. In variations 1 and 2, alteration of tidal volume resulted in significant changes of lymph flow rate. The pulmonary contribution to MPCL lymph flow was estimated as 34% in variation 2. We conclude that MPCL lymph may contain not only cardiac lymph but also significant pulmonary contamination. This finding should be considered in the interpretation of lymph data from cannulation of the canine MPCL. (+info)

Lymph trunk - Wikipedia
Lymph trunk is a collection of lymph vessels that carries lymph, and is formed by confluence of many efferent lymph vessels. It in turn drains into one of the two lymph ducts (right lymph duct and the thoracic duct). When an efferent lymph vessel leaves a lymph node, it may carry lymph to another lymph node by becoming its afferent lymph vessel or unite with other efferent vessels to become a lymph trunk. The lymph trunks drain into the lymph ducts, which in turn return lymph to the blood by emptying into the respective subclavian veins. There are four pairs and an unpaired lymph trunks: Jugular lymph trunks Subclavian lymph trunks Bronchomediastinal lymph trunks Lumbar lymph trunks Intestinal lymph trunk- ...
Lipoprotein distribution in sheep lung lymph<...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Lipoprotein distribution in sheep lung lymph. AU - Cross, Carroll E. AU - Forte, T. M.. AU - Gunther, R. A.. AU - Kramer, G. C.. PY - 1983. Y1 - 1983. N2 - The composition of lymph draining the sheep caudal mediastinal lymph node is believed to reflect the composition of lung interstitial fluid. Although long-term lymph fistulas have been extensively utilized in studies related to lung microvascular fluid and protein flux, attention has thus far not been focused on lipoproteins as they might appear in lung interstitial space. We therefore characterized the lipoprotein distributions and measured triglyceride and cholesterol concentrations of lung lymph and plasma in nine unanesthetized sheep with long-term embedded instrumentation. We also measured triglyceride and cholesterol concentrations in prefemoral and thoracic duct lymph. The plasma LDL concentration was 55.3 ± 20.2 mg/dl and HDL concentration was 99.9 ± 27.2 mg/dl. By comparison, the lung lymph LDL concentration was ...

N2 - Associated abnormalities of the lymphatic circulation are well described in congenital heart disease. However, their mechanisms remain poorly elucidated. Using a clinically relevant ovine model of a congenital cardiac defect with chronically increased pulmonary blood flow (shunt), we previously demonstrated that exposure to chronically elevated pulmonary lymph flow is associated with: 1) decreased bioavailable nitric oxide (NO) in pulmonary lymph; and 2) attenuated endothelium-dependent relaxation of thoracic duct rings, suggesting disrupted lymphatic endothelial NO signaling in shunt lambs. To further elucidate the mechanisms responsible for ...

Mechanism of complement activation after coronary artery occlusion: evidence that myocardial ischemia in dogs causes release of...
To evaluate whether ischemic myocardium releases molecules that react with the first component of complement, we studied cardiac lymph from eight dogs before and at intervals after coronary artery occlusion and reperfusion. Before occlusion, the dogs were injected intravenously with radiolabeled human C1q. Labeled C1q could be detected in the cardiac lymph within minutes following injection. Rabbit antisera, prepared against substances precipitated from postreprefusion cardiac lymph by anti-human C1q, also reacted with specific constituents of isolated cardiac sarcoplasmic reticulum and mitochondria. To evaluate whether mitochondria are the source of these C1q-binding proteins, we isolated intramyofibrillar and subsarcolemmal mitochondria from canine heart and incubated sonicates of these with purified C1q, immobilized on nitrocellulose. Molecules bound to the immobilized C1q were removed with 0.1% sodium dodecyl sulfate, fractionated under reducing conditions by polyacrylamide gel ...
Subset-specific expression of toll-like receptors by bovine afferent lymph dendritic cells - Nottingham ePrints
Within the ruminant system, several possibilities exist to generate dendritic cells migrating out from the tissue into the regional draining lymph nodes as afferent lymph dendritic cells (ALDCs). Here, we analyzed toll-like receptor (TLR) 1-10 mRNA expression by using quantitative real-time PCR in highly purified subsets of bovine ALDC. As TLR expression may be influenced by pathogens or vaccines and their adjuvant, it is necessary to understand what TLRs are expressed in a steady-state system to elucidate specific differences and to potentially optimize targeted vaccines. In this study, we have assessed the TLR expression profiles of the four main bovine ALDC subsets [cDC1 and cDC2 (subsets 2-4)]. We demonstrate differences in TLR expression between the four subsets that may reflect the ability of these cells to respond to different pathogens or to respond to adjuvants.. ...

Its the name of whats happening. Fluid is building up (edema) in his lymph system and cant leave his leg. Normally, as your heart pumps blood into your leg, some of it is transferred into the tissue, and the fluid already in the tissue flows into lymph ducts. Lymph ducts work like veins, but for interstitial fluid (the fluid around your cells), bringing it back up to your torso and then putting it back in the blood around your right shoulder. If the lymph system is disrupted the blood keeps pumping in, fluid keeps getting pushed into the interstitial space around your cells, but the fluid already there has trouble getting out. Then you swell up ...

The flow of blood to lymph nodes and its relation to lymphocyte traffic and the immune response. | JEM
The blood flow to individual lymph nodes of sheep and rabbits has been determined with 85Sr-labeled microspheres. A popliteal node of the sheep received 0.014% of the cardiac output and a comparable node in the rabbit 0.011%. A sheep lymph node weighing 1 g received an average of 24 ml/h of blood. It was calculated that there was a highly selective removal of lymphocytes by the node and that an equivalent to one in every four lymphocytes that entered a normal lymph node migrated out of the blood, through the substance of the node, and into the efferent lymph. During the immune response to either allogeneic lymphocytes or tuberculin, the blood flow to sheep lymph nodes, even without considering the increase in node weight, increased an average of fourfold. During the primary immune response in the rabbit to keyhole limpet hemocyanin, the blood flow increased threefold. The increase in blood flow preceded the antigen-induced increase in lymphocyte traffic recorded in the efferent lymph. The early ...
Lymph hearts - Wikipedia
Lymph hearts are organs found in some animals which pump lymph. Lymph hearts are found in lungfishes, all amphibians, reptiles and flightless birds. They function as small pumps to pump lymph that has leaked out of the circulatory system back into the circulatory system. The lymphatic system of a frog consists of lymph, lymph vessels, lymph heart, lymph spaces and spleen. Some mast cells can also be found in the lymphatics of the tongue of some of the frog species. As lymph is a filtrate of blood it closely resembles the plasma in its water content. Lymph also contains a small amount of metabolic waste and a much smaller amount of protein than that of blood. Lymph vessels carry the lymph and, in the frog, open into the four lymph hearts. These lymph hearts are located on the dorsal side of frogs body. The front pair is situated below the shoulder blades. The posterior pair is on either side of a long, rod-like bone called a urostyle, formed by the fusion of the last few vertebrae. The anterior ...
Albumin permeability in the pulmonary capillaries<...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Albumin permeability in the pulmonary capillaries. AU - Northrup, W. F.. AU - Humphrey, E. W.. PY - 1974/1/1. Y1 - 1974/1/1. N2 - At any given hydrostatic pressure, one of the critical factors controlling water flux across the pulmonary capillary membrane is the permeability of that membrane to serum albumin. Because the adult respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) may be associated with an abnormality of pulmonary water, a definition of albumin kinetics across the normal pulmonary capillaries and of the normal pulmonary lymph flow is appropriate to a better understanding of the ARDS. In this article the results are reported of a study of the normal pulmonary lymph flow rate and of the normal pulmonary capillary permeability to albumin in vivo. It was found that the value for the apparent volume of pulmonary lymph (V(la)) is only 0.13 that of the interstitial fluid space (V(isp)), measured by indicator dilution curves. Using V(isp) as the pulmonary lymph volume results in a ...
Lymph-migrating, tissue-derived dendritic cells are minor constituents within steady-state lymph nodes | JEM
Historically, several observations led to the development of the view that lymph node DCs arose substantially from lymph-borne DCs that originated in upstream tissues. First, DCs in cannulated afferent lymph are relatively abundant and are clearly involved in transporting antigen. In contrast, committed DC precursors are sparse in the circulation of humans (4). Furthermore, when afferent lymphatics are severed, the lymph node becomes nearly void of DCs (50) and antigen presentation is blocked (51). Recently, the idea that specialized DC subsets-plasmacytoid and CD8α+ DCs-enter the lymph node from the bloodstream has been introduced, but this understanding has not modified the belief that many lymph node DCs arise from interstitial nonlymphoid organ DCs that mobilize through lymphatics (16, 17) and may even mature in the steady state as they migrate (19). In this study, we present surprising evidence that most steady-state DCs in lymph nodes that drain a variety of organs by and large do not ...
Interleukin (IL)-2 administration leads to respiratory dysfunction due to increased vascular permeability. This study examines the role of thromboxane (Tx)A2 in IL-2 induced lung injury in sheep with chronic lung lymph fistulae. This preparation enables evaluation of permeability prior to the development of gross edema. IL-2, 105 units/kg (n = 6), or its excipient control (n = 5) was given as an i.v. bolus over 2 min. After 2 h of IL-2 administration, plasma TxB2 increased from 168 to 388 pg/ml (P , 0.05) and lung lymph TxB2 from 235 to 694 pg/ml (P , 0.05). Mean pulmonary artery pressure (MPAP) rose from 13 to 29 mm of Hg (P , 0.05) at 30 min and remained elevated for 4 h while the pulmonary artery wedge pressure was unchanged at 4 mm of Hg. Arterial oxygen tension (Pao2) fell from 88 to 77 mm of Hg (P , 0.05). Lung lymph flow (Q̇L) rose from 2.2 to 3.8 ml/30 min (P , 0.05) at 1 h and to 6.4 ml/30 min at 3 h. This rise coincided with an increase in the lymph/plasma (L/P) protein ratio from ...

Treatment may include: Supportive or palliative care is treatment used to manage symptoms caused by cancer. Stage IV describes invasive breast cancer that has spread beyond the breast and nearby lymph nodes to other organs of the body, such as the lungs, distant lymph nodes, skin, bones, liver, or brain.You may hear the words advanced and metastatic used to describe stage IV breast cancer. Sometimes stage 2 means that cancer cells have spread into lymph nodes close to the tumour. There are subclassifications that occasionally change. With stage 1B breast cancer, the tumor is less than 2 centimeters, but there are small clusters of cancer cells in nearby lymph nodes. It has spread to lymph nodes around the thyroid in the neck (N1a) but not ...

1. The experimental observations have been summarized at the end of an earlier section. The more important facts only will be recapitulated here. The capacity of the lymphatics for removing fluid from the tissues greatly exceeds the rate at which freshly formed tissue fluid can be made available for removal. Edematous regions can be rendered non-edematous by the application of measures, such as massage, passive motion, or normal exercise, which activate the lymphatics. During continuous activity the rate of lymph flow is first variable and later relatively constant. Constant rates of flow must correspond to the production of fresh lymph. A study of the constant rates indicates that lymph formation in the edematous animal is certainly only slightly greater, and possibly not greater at all, than under conditions of normality. When the protein of plasma decreases, the protein of lymph is also lowered. The loss of protein from lymph takes place at a faster rate than from plasma, so that the ratio of ...
7 Best Natural Remedies for Lymph Detox - Microbe Formulas™
Lymph is analogous to blood in that theyre both liquids circulating in your body.. But the similarity stops there.. Unlike red bloods circular, pumped (by the heart) movement, clear-to-white lymph moves just one way: out. To make matters worse, lymph has no organ pump. (1). So its up to you to eliminate it yourself through moving and deep breathing! (Another reason why a sedentary lifestyle can take years off your life.). You definitely need to be pro-active when it comes to lymph management.. And you see where Im going with this...more on this coming up.. Also unlike blood, lymph is mostly water (95%) with the fancy name of interstitial fluid. This is the water all around and between your cells filled with some immune cells, protein, fats and other big, sultry-sounding (and looking) substances.. Lymph also contains water from blood plasma.. And again you might be able to guess where Im going with that...stay tuned!. But its the remaining 5% that I want to focus on right now.. Lymph is ...

CCR7: Unifying Disparate Journeys to the Lymph Node | The Journal of Immunology
Many immune responses begin in lymph nodes, and it is no wonder. The lymph node is the only tissue in the body that is primarily organized to be the perfect meeting point for cellular travelers that otherwise would seem to have a low probability to ever make an encounter. Through the high endothelial venule come lymphocytes that are otherwise confined to the blood, while from the lymph draining the parenchyma of an adjacent organ come Ag-bearing dendritic cells (DCs). Efficient interactions between these different cell types that originate from vastly different environments is made possible because the lymph node is specially designed, via its connections to both blood and lymphatic vasculatures, to bring them together. Whereas the journey that naive T lymphocytes take from the blood is very different from the journey that the DC takes through lymph, a single chemokine receptor, CCR7, governs both of these critical trafficking patterns, bringing molecular unity to two anatomically disparate ...
