Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor Receptor-3
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.

Malignant lymphoma in which the lymphomatous cells are clustered into identifiable nodules within the LYMPH NODES. The nodules resemble to some extent the GERMINAL CENTER of lymph node follicles and most likely represent neoplastic proliferation of lymph node-derived follicular center B-LYMPHOCYTES.
Radiotherapy where cytotoxic radionuclides are linked to antibodies in order to deliver toxins directly to tumor targets. Therapy with targeted radiation rather than antibody-targeted toxins (IMMUNOTOXINS) has the advantage that adjacent tumor cells, which lack the appropriate antigenic determinants, can be destroyed by radiation cross-fire. Radioimmunotherapy is sometimes called targeted radiotherapy, but this latter term can also refer to radionuclides linked to non-immune molecules (see RADIOTHERAPY).
LYVE-1, a new homologue of the CD44 glycoprotein, is a lymph-specific receptor for hyaluronan. (1/803)The extracellular matrix glycosaminoglycan hyaluronan (HA) is an abundant component of skin and mesenchymal tissues where it facilitates cell migration during wound healing, inflammation, and embryonic morphogenesis. Both during normal tissue homeostasis and particularly after tissue injury, HA is mobilized from these sites through lymphatic vessels to the lymph nodes where it is degraded before entering the circulation for rapid uptake by the liver. Currently, however, the identities of HA binding molecules which control this pathway are unknown. Here we describe the first such molecule, LYVE-1, which we have identified as a major receptor for HA on the lymph vessel wall. The deduced amino acid sequence of LYVE-1 predicts a 322-residue type I integral membrane polypeptide 41% similar to the CD44 HA receptor with a 212-residue extracellular domain containing a single Link module the prototypic HA binding domain of the Link protein superfamily. Like CD44, the LYVE-1 molecule binds both soluble and immobilized HA. However, unlike CD44, the LYVE-1 molecule colocalizes with HA on the luminal face of the lymph vessel wall and is completely absent from blood vessels. Hence, LYVE-1 is the first lymph-specific HA receptor to be characterized and is a uniquely powerful marker for lymph vessels themselves. (+info)
Contribution of extracranial lymphatics and arachnoid villi to the clearance of a CSF tracer in the rat. (2/803)The objective of this study was to determine the relative roles of arachnoid villi and cervical lymphatics in the clearance of a cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) tracer in rats. 125I-labeled human serum albumin (125I-HSA; 100 micrograms) was injected into one lateral ventricle, and an Evans blue dye-rat protein complex was injected intravenously. Arterial blood was sampled for 3 h. Immediately after this, multiple cervical vessels were ligated in the same animals, and plasma recoveries were monitored for a further 3 h after the intracerebroventricular injection of 100 micrograms 131I-HSA. Tracer recovery in plasma at 3 h averaged (%injected dose) 0.697 +/- 0.042 before lymphatic ligation and dropped significantly to 0.357 +/- 0. 060 after ligation. Estimates of the rate constant associated with the transport of the CSF tracer to plasma were also significantly lower after obstruction of cervical lymphatics (from 0.584 +/- 0. 072/h to 0.217 +/- 0.056/h). No significant changes were observed in sham-operated animals. Assuming that the movement of the CSF tracer to plasma in lymph-ligated animals was a result of arachnoid villi clearance, we conclude that arachnoid villi and extracranial lymphatic pathways contributed equally to the clearance of the CSF tracer from the cranial vault.

Lymph and pulmonary response to isobaric reduction in plasma oncotic pressure in baboons. (3/803)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.

Development of T-B cell collaboration in neonatal mice. (4/803)The neonatal immune response is impaired during the first weeks after birth. To obtain a better understanding of this immaturity, we investigated the development of T cell interactions with B cells in mice. For this purpose, we analyzed the immune response to three T-dependent antigens in vivo: (i) the polyclonal antibody response induced by vaccinia virus; (ii) the production of polyclonal and specific antibodies following immunization with hapten-carrier conjugates; (iii) the mouse mammary tumor virus superantigen (sAg) response involving an increase in sAg-reactive T cells and induction of polyclonal antibody production. After vaccinia virus injection into neonates, the polyclonal antibody response was similar to that observed in adult mice. The antibody response to hapten-carrier conjugates, however, was delayed and reduced. Injection with sAg-expressing B cells from neonatal or adult mice allowed us to determine whether B cells, T cells or both were implicated in the reduced immune response. In these sAg responses, neonatal T cells were stimulated by both neonatal and adult sAg-presenting B cells but only B cells from adult mice differentiated into IgM- and IgG-secreting plasma cells in the neonatal environment in vivo. Injecting neonatal B cells into adult mice did not induce antibody production. These results demonstrate that the environment of the neonatal lymph node is able to support a T and B cell response, and that immaturity of B cells plays a key role in the reduced immune response observed in the neonate.

Lymphatic vessel hypoplasia in fetuses with Turner syndrome. (5/803)Turner syndrome is associated with subcutaneous accumulation of fluid in the neck region that can be visualized sonographically from 10-14 weeks of gestation as massively increased nuchal translucency thickness. Possible mechanisms for this increased translucency include dilatation of the jugular lymphatic sacs because of developmental delay in the connection with the venous system, or a primary abnormal dilatation or proliferation of the lymphatic channels interfering with a normal flow between the lymphatic and venous systems. The aim of this study was to investigate the distribution of lymphatic vessels in nuchal skin tissue from fetuses with Turner syndrome compared with fetuses carrying trisomies 21, 18 and 13 and chromosomally normal controls. The distribution of vessels was examined by immunohistochemistry using a monoclonal antibody, PTN63, against 5' nucleotidase and an anti-laminin antibody. In normal control fetuses (n = 6) and those with trisomies 21 (n = 3), 18 (n = 2) and 13 (n = 2), PTN63-positive and laminin-positive vessels were evenly distributed throughout the dermis and subcutis. In Turner syndrome (n = 3), there was a chain of large vessels that stained with both PTN63 and laminin at the border between dermis and subcutis, but there was scarcity of vessels in the upper dermis and the subcutis. Using PTN63 alone, there were no positive vessels in the upper dermis. We conclude that in Turner syndrome lymphatic vessels in the upper dermis are hypoplastic. (+info)
Lymphatic microangiopathy of the skin in systemic sclerosis. (6/803)METHODS: The cutaneous capillary lymphatic system in patients with systemic sclerosis was investigated using fluorescence microlymphography. The distal upper limbs of 16 healthy controls (mean age 62.3+/-13.1 yr) and 16 patients with systemic sclerosis (mean age 58.9+/-13.6 yr) were examined and the following parameters were evaluated: (a) single lymphatic capillaries; (b) lymphatic capillary network and cutaneous backflow; (c) extension of the stained lymphatics; (d) diameter of single lymphatic capillaries. RESULTS: At the finger level, lymphatic capillaries were lacking in five patients, while they were present in all controls (P < 0.05). Extension of the stained lymphatics was increased in 11 patients (8.1+/-6.0 mm) compared to the 16 healthy controls (2.0+/-1.2 mm) (P < 0.0001). Cutaneous backflow was observed in three patients (P < 0.05). At the hand level, lymphatic network extension was significantly different between patients (3.8+/-2.4 mm) and controls (1.2+/-0.8 mm) (P < 0.01); however, no significant differences were found at the forearm level. CONCLUSION: Lesional skin in patients with systemic sclerosis exhibits evidence of lymphatic microangiopathy. (+info)
VEGFR-3 and its ligand VEGF-C are associated with angiogenesis in breast cancer. (7/803)Recently, monoclonal antibodies against the human vascular endothelial growth factor receptor VEGFR-3 were shown to provide a specific antigenic marker for lymphatic endothelium in various normal tissues. In this study we have investigated the expression of VEGFR-3 and its ligand VEGF-C in normal breast tissue and in breast tumors by immunohistochemistry. VEGFR-3 was weakly expressed in capillaries of normal breast tissue and in fibroadenomas. In intraductal breast carcinomas, VEGFR-3 was prominent in the "necklace" vessels adjacent to the basal lamina of the tumor-filled ducts. VEGF receptor 1 and 2 as well as blood vessel endothelial and basal lamina markers were colocalized with VEGFR-3 in many of these vessels. Antibodies against smooth muscle alpha-actin gave a weak staining of the necklace vessels, suggesting that they were incompletely covered by pericytes/smooth muscle cells. A highly elevated number of VEGFR-3 positive vessels was found in invasive breast cancer in comparison with histologically normal breast tissue (P < 0.0001, the Mann-Whitney test). VEGF-C was located in the cytoplasm of intraductal and invasive cancer cells. The results demonstrate that the expression of VEGFR-3 becomes up-regulated in the endothelium of angiogenic blood vessels in breast cancer. The results also suggest that VEGF-C secreted by the intraductal carcinoma cells acts predominantly as an angiogenic growth factor for blood vessels, although this paracrine signaling network between the cancer cells and the endothelium may also be involved in modifying the permeabilities of both blood and lymphatic vessels and metastasis formation.

Localization of Mycobacterium leprae to endothelial cells of epineurial and perineurial blood vessels and lymphatics. (8/803)Infection of peripheral nerve by Mycobacterium leprae, the histopathological hallmark of leprosy, is a major factor in this disease, but the route and mechanisms by which bacilli localize to peripheral nerve are unknown. Experimentally infected armadillos have recently been recognized as a model of lepromatous neuritis; the major site of early accumulation of M. leprae is epineurial. To determine the epineurial cells involved, 1-cm segments of 44 nerves from armadillos were screened for acid-fast bacilli and thin sections were examined ultrastructurally. Of 596 blocks containing nerve, 36% contained acid-fast bacilli. Overall, M. leprae were found in endothelial cells in 40% of epineurial blood vessels and 75% of lymphatics, and in 25% of vessels intraneurally. Comparison of epineurial and endoneurial findings suggested that colonization of epineurial vessels preceded endoneurial infection. Such colonization of epineurial nutrient vessels may greatly increase the risk of endoneurial M. leprae bacteremia, and also enhance the risk of ischemia following even mild increases in inflammation or mechanical stress. These findings also raise the possibility that early, specific mechanisms in the localization of M. leprae to peripheral nerve may involve adhesion events between M. leprae (or M. leprae-parasitized macrophages) and the endothelial cells of the vasa nervorum.

Right lymphatic duct - Biology-Online Dictionary
Supplement In human lymphatic system, the lymphatics (or lymphatic vessels) are the channels that convey the colorless, alkaline fluid called lymph. The lymphatics include the lymph capillaries (which are the smallest channels of the lymphatic system), the collecting lymph vessels with valves, and the lymphatic ducts, which are the terminal lymphatic vessels that empty to the subclavian veins. There are two major lymphatic ducts in human lymphatic system. These are the right lymphatic duct and the thoracic duct. The right thoracic duct is about 1.25 cm in length. It is formed through the union of the right jugular lymphatic vessel and the vessels from the lymph nodes of the right upper extremity, thoracic wall, and both lungs.1 The right lymphatic duct drains lymph fluid into the bloodstream from the upper right quadrant of the body via the right bronchomediastinal trunk, the right arm through the right subclavian trunk, and the ride side of the head and neck through the right jugular trunk.

The Lymphatic System and Ways to Improve It | Cancer Crackdown
The lymphatic system is a system in the body that is created to remove the cellular waste from the body. In addition, it also plays an important role in the immune system. Lymph vessels are the main component in the lymphatic system and these vessels transfer the lymph fluid from extremities to the lymph ducts where after a short period of time they are left in the veins and mix with blood.. This system is not triggered by some pump (like the blood system). It uses muscle contractions to move around the body. Lymph nodes are another important part of this system. These nodes are essential part of the immune system and they locate, capture and process toxins and other harmful particles.. In cases of infection, the lymph nodes usually become swollen because the body automatically transfers back bacteria to the nodes where they need to be eliminated with the help of white blood cells.. In addition, the lymphatic system is not only a system responsible for fighting diseases and disorders, it also ...
Spleen and Lymphatic System
One of the lymphatic systems major jobs is to collect extra lymph fluid from body tissues and return it to the blood. This is crucial because water, proteins, and other substances are always leaking out of tiny blood capillaries into the surrounding body tissues. If the lymphatic system didnt drain the excess fluid from the tissues, the lymph fluid would build up in the bodys tissues, causing them to swell.. The lymphatic system also helps defend the body against germs (viruses, bacteria, and fungi) that can cause illnesses. Those germs are filtered out in the lymph nodes, which are small masses of tissue located along the network of lymph vessels. The nodes house lymphocytes, a type of white blood cell. Some of those lymphocytes make antibodies, special proteins that stop infections from spreading by trapping disease-causing germs and destroying them.. The spleen also helps the body fight infection. The spleen contains lymphocytes and another kind of white blood cell (called macrophages) ...

Lymphatic System | Functional Medicine | Coast Chiropractic Clinic Hove
To understand the lymphatic system, lets compare it very briefly with the blood circulatory system. Blood is circulated by the pumping of the heart. The blood is pumped out from the heart via arteries and returned to the heart via veins. So there is a complete system (like the M25).. The lymphatic system does not have a pump. It relies on the movement of muscles and it is this movement which facilitates the flow of lymph fluid. Hence, exercise is really important for well-functioning lymph flow.. Another difference from the blood circulatory system is the lymph works only in one direction and it is against gravity. Lymph vessels move lymph fluid; a clear, yellowish fluid which is the result of residual fluid leftover from the arterial delivery to the interstitial spaces; upwards, passing through numerous lymph nodes which filter and destroy products, until finally it is drained into the Subclavian Veins at either side of the neck.. ...

The Importance Of Lymphedema Management - Fremont & Dodge County Visitors Guide
The lymphatic system is the collection of lymphatic fluids that are present in the body. They include white blood cells, which are very essential for the protection of the whole body; antibodies, which are produced by the body to fight against infection and microorganisms; fluid drained from the lymph glands that are also very important in draining fluid from the body; and fluids in the lymph nodes, which are very important in fluid removal from the lymph system. The lymphatic system has its own drainage system, which is called the lymphatic system.. The lymphatic system of the body is mainly responsible for moving fluids and nutrients from the central part of the body to the extremities, and it is very important in lymphatic drainage of fluids and nutrients. Some organs also have lymphatic drainage system, such as kidneys, adrenal glands, lungs, heart and spleen. But the most important organs that have a lymphatic system are the liver and the lymph nodes. In fact, there are some organs in the ...
Spleen and Lymphatic System
The lymphatic system is a network of very small tubes (vessels) that drain lymph fluid from all over the body. The major parts of the lymph tissue are located in the bone marrow, spleen, thymus gland, lymph nodes, and the tonsils. The heart, lungs, intestines, liver, and skin also contain lymphatic tissue.. One of the major lymphatic vessels is the thoracic duct, which begins near the lower part of the spine and collects lymph from the pelvis, abdomen, and lower chest. The thoracic duct runs up through the chest and empties into the blood through a large vein near the left side of the neck. The right lymphatic duct is the other major lymphatic vessel. It collects lymph from the right side of the neck, chest, and arm, and empties into a large vein near the right side of the neck.. Lymph nodes are round or kidney shaped. Most lymph nodes are about 1 cm in diameter but they can vary in size. Most of the lymph nodes are found in clusters in the neck, armpit, and groin area. Nodes are also located ...
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 ...

The Lymphatic System
Have you ever tried siphoning fluid from one container to another? Put one end of a tube in a bucket of water and place your mouth over the other tube opening. Inhale through your mouth. You are creating a pressure differential between the ends of the tube. As you inhale you are creating a vacuum or lower pressure at the mouth end of the tube in comparison to the now higher pressure at the water end. As the difference in pressure increases, water begins to migrate through the tube, eventually flowing from the bucket out the tube.. The lymphatic system functions on a pressure differential too. There is always a lesser pressure at one end of the lymphatic system (towards the lungs) and a higher one at the other (in the abdomen and extremities). The open end lies extensively through a loose network throughout your cells and tissue. The other end culminates under your collarbone where it flows into your veins and circulatory system. Manually, this pressure differential can be increased by ...

The lymphatic system also helps defend the body against germs (viruses, bacteria, and fungi) that can cause illnesses. Those germs are filtered out in the lymph nodes, small clumps of tissue along the network of lymph vessels. Inside the lymph nodes, lymphocytes called T-cells and B-cells help the body fight infection. B cells make antibodies - special proteins that stop infections from spreading by trapping disease-causing germs and destroying them.. Most of our lymph nodes are in clusters in the neck, armpit, and groin area. Theyre also found along the lymphatic pathways in the chest, abdomen, and pelvis, where they filter the blood.. When a person has an infection, germs collect in the lymph nodes. If the throat is infected, for example, the lymph nodes in the neck may swell. Thats why doctors check for swollen lymph nodes (sometimes called swollen glands) in the neck when someone has a sore throat. This is called lymphadenopathy.. Reviewed by: Larissa Hirsch, ...
Lymphatic system dysfunction in pediatric populations - Servier - PhlebolymphologyServier - Phlebolymphology
Vertebrates have developed a sophisticated system of recognition, rescue, integration, and transport of macromolecules and pathogenic material suspended in water. Located between the interstitial space and the deep jugular-subclavian venous system, this multipurpose system links the interstitial and intravascular space, returning fluids, solutes, and proteins filtered from the capillaries back to the systemic circulation. It has three major functions: removal of tissue fluid, production of immune cells, and absorption and transport of fatty acids and lipid-soluble vitamins to the circulatory system. To achieve this task the lymphatic system has a complex network of vessels throughout the body. In two clearly defined circuits, lymphatic channels from the upper right side of the body converge to form the right lymphatic duct, which empties into the confluence of the right internal jugular and subclavian vein, and lymphatic channels from the remainder of the body drain via Pecquets cistern ...

What are the responsiblities of the lymphatic system?. Our lymphatic system helps with immune function and circulation, carrying lymphatic fluid waste products to the lymph nodes to be broken down and sent out of the body (usually through urine output), while the rest of the protein-rich fluid is sent back into our circulatory system.. Our lymphatic system covers our entire body alongside our circulatory system. The lymph nodes lay in chains along the lymphatic vessels throughout our body. The main areas include the neck, armpits and groin region. Were not born with a set number of lymph nodes, so you can have 25 under one armpit and just five under the other. When our lymph nodes are removed or damaged, they dont regrow and they dont repair themselves.

OSA | Direct visualization of changes of lymphatic function and drainage pathways in lymph node metastasis of B16F10 melanoma...
The lymphatic system provides an initial route for cancer cell dissemination in many cancers including melanoma. However, it is largely unknown how the lymphatic system changes during tumor progression due in part to the lack of imaging techniques currently available. In this study, we non-invasively imaged changes of lymphatic function and drainage patterns using near-infrared fluorescence (NIRF) imaging. Dynamic NIRF imaging following intradermal injection of indocyanine green (ICG) was conducted in C57BL/6 mice prior to inoculation of B16F10 murine melanoma cells to the dorsal aspect of the left hindpaw for baseline data or directly to the popliteal lymph node (PLN) and until 21 days post-implantation (p.i.). A series of acquired fluorescent images were quantified to measure lymphatic contractile function. Computed tomography (CT) was also performed to measure the volume of tumor-draining lymph nodes (LNs). We observed significant reduction of lymphatic contractility from 7 days p.i. until 21 ...

Most physicians use antibiotics because they view the ear infection as taking place solely within the ear itself. Osteopaths realize its not the ear that the needs the treatment, but the entire body. Fulford believes the problem actually starts with trauma at the childs birth, when the recto- respiratory reflex affects lymphatic drainage in the neck and the upper part of the shoulder.7 His solution is to treat and balance the sacrum, pelvis and the rib cage, which gets the lymphatic fluid flowing through the system, and then put some glycerin drops in each ear. Here is how he explains the situation : When the sacrum is restricted, the whole primary respiratory mechanism is impaired. Along with this goes a pattern of restricted breathing, and it is the force of the breath - the rhythmic changes in the chest - that pumps the lymphatic circulation.

Hippocrates, in the 5th century BC, was one of the first people to mention the lymphatic system. In his work On Joints, he briefly mentioned the lymph nodes in one sentence. Rufus of Ephesus, a Roman physician, identified the axillary, inguinal and mesenteric lymph nodes as well as the thymus during the 1st to 2nd century AD. The first mention of lymphatic vessels was in the 3rd century BC by Herophilos, a Greek anatomist living in Alexandria, who incorrectly concluded that the absorptive veins of the lymphatics, by which he meant the lacteals (lymph vessels of the intestines), drained into the hepatic portal veins, and thus into the liver. The findings of Ruphus and Herophilos were further propagated by the Greek physician Galen, who described the lacteals and mesenteric lymph nodes which he observed in his dissection of apes and pigs in the 2nd century AD. In the mid 16th century, Gabriele Falloppio (discoverer of the fallopian tubes), described what is now known as the ...

The most common type of lymphoma is called Hodgkins disease. All other lymphomas are grouped together and are called non-Hodgkins lymphomas.…..CLICK & SEE. The lymphatic system is part of the bodys immune defense system. Its job is to help fight diseases and infection.. The lymphatic system includes a network of thin tubes that branch, like blood vessels, into tissues throughout the body. Lymphatic vessels carry lymph, a colorless watery fluid that contains infection-fighting cells called lymphocytes. Along this network of vessels are groups of small, bean-shaped organs called lymph nodes. Clusters of lymph nodes are found in the underarms, groin, neck, chest, and abdomen.. Other parts of the lymphatic system are the spleen, thymus, tonsils, and bone marrow. Lymphatic tissue also is found in other parts of the body, including the stomach, intestines, and skin.. Non-Hodgkins lymphoma, also called non-Hodgkin lymphoma, is cancer that originates in your lymphatic system, the disease-fighting ...
Chronic Venous Insufficiency and the Effects on the Lymphatic System « Lymphedema Blog
retrograde (backward) venous flow (reflux), or a combination of these. The deficient valves in the veins in CVI fail to prevent the retrograde flow of venous blood during muscle pump activity, specifically the activity of the calf musculature during walking (ambulatory). Muscle activity in the legs applies outside pressure to the veins and a functioning system of valves forces the venous blood upward and towards the heart while walking and prevents backflow. In CVI the blood is not only forced upward towards the heart during muscle activity, but also backwards causing the pressure in the veins of the lower leg to increase even more (ambulatory venous hypertension).. This pathological increase in pressure subsequently has an effect on the blood capillaries, and more fluid is filtered from the blood into the tissues. It is the lymphatic systems responsibility to compensate for the increased amount of tissue fluid by increasing its activity; this is also known as the lymphatic safety function. ...

NOTES: Class XI, BIOLOGY, Lymphatic System
All body tissues are bathed in a watery fluid derived from the blood stream. This intercellular or tissue fluid is formed when blood passes trough the capillaries. The capillary walls are permeable to all components of blood except the R.B.Cs & blood proteins. The fluid passes from the capillary into the intercellular spaces as the inter-cellular or tissue fluid. About 85% of the tissue fluid returns into the blood at the venous end of capillary. The rest 15 % of tissue fluid drains into lymphatic capillaries as lymph along with W.B.Cs, cell debris & micro organism like Bacteria , are transported back to the heart through lymphatic system ...

Toronto researchers discover novel circulation in human eye, new glaucoma treatment target
The discovery of a lymphatic circulation in the eye overthrows the idea that the eye is an immune privileged site due to the lack of lymphatics and has major implications for understanding eye inflammations and eye tumor spread, among other eye disorders. This uveolymphatic circulation plays a role in the clearance of fluid from the eye, making it highly relevant to glaucoma. This discovery is exciting because it means we can focus on innovative treatment strategies for patients with glaucoma by specifically targeting this new circulation to lower eye pressure, said Dr. Gupta.. According to the researchers, future studies will be directed at better understanding how to manipulate the lymphatic circulation in the eye. Its clear that if we want to develop new strategies to prevent blindness, we need to challenge existing beliefs, and hopefully open the door to new treatments for eye disease, said Prof. Yücel, who also serves as Director of the Ophthalmic Pathology Laboratory in U of Ts ...

an etiological study of lymphedema [Lymphedema People]
The lymphatic system is made up of numerous superficial lymph vessels which follow the veins and perform lymphatic drainage to superficial and (less common) deep lymph nodes. The function of the lymphatic system is to reabsorb plasma proteins which escape from the capillary bed and to transport liquids. It also processes cellular excretions, removes organic particles, absorbs fats, eliminates mutated cells and produces lymphocytes. Lymph vessels begin as blind-ended tubes, located in the interstitium. These drain into the pre-lymphatic system, formed by the pre-collectors, which, in turn drain to blood vessels or lymphatic capillaries. Lymphatic capillaries have the same structure as pre-collectors, although they have fewer open junctions and more intra-lymphatic valves. Lymphatic capillaries then drain into lymph nodes, where open junctions cease, the middle smooth muscle layer appears and intra-lymphatic valves become more frequent. The adventitial layer also appears. From the lymph nodes, the ...
REBOUNDERS - MINI TRAMPOLINE USERS
This is group for rebounding enthusiasts. We share information about new products, rebounders, review videos, help keep each other motivated and share our own stories and experiences. We welcome newcomers. Some of the many health benefits of regular rebounding include: Rebounding provides an increased G-force (gravitational load), which strengthens the musculoskeletal systems. Rebounding aids lymphatic circulation by stimulating the millions of one-way valves in the lymphatic system. Your lymphatic system acts as your bodys internal vacuum cleaner. Rebounding increases the functional activity of the red bone marrow in the production of red blood cells. Rebounding improves resting metabolic rate so that more calories are burned for hours after exercise. Rebounding improves circulation. It encourages collateral circulation (the formation of new branch blood vessels that distribute blood to the heart) by increasing the capillary count in the muscles & decreasing the distance between the capillaries & the
The lymphatic system - Its a natural universe
In the circulatory system, the heart pumps blood throughout the body via arteries, then smaller arterioles and finally through tiny capillaries, from which molecules are exchanged with cells and the rest of the body. Due to the pressure of the blood, much plasma is pushed out also. The endothelial walls of the capillaries are just one cell thick and the spaces between them allow fluid to pass, but not the larger erythrocytes (RBCs). Oxygen and glucose necessary for cellular respiration, as well as other molecules, also may exit. We have seen in a preceding paragraph the conditions under which oxygen may be absorbed or released by hemoglobin in the erythrocytes.lymph nodes. Outside the capillaries, the escaped fluid and molecules constitute the extracellular or interstitial fluid. It is composed of WBCs, including lymphocytes, some hormones, glucose and other molecules, such as proteins and lipids. Much of it is reabsorbed, but some remains outside. One of the jobs of the lymphatic system is to ...
