EL-KARIB, Abbas O et al. Pre-Diabetes Induces Ultrastructural Alterations in the Large Blood Vessel Aorta in Rats. Int. J. Morphol. [online]. 2019, vol.37, n.2, pp.647-653. ISSN 0717-9502. http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0717-95022019000200647.. Excessive consumption of carbohydrate and fat increases the risk of cardiovascular disease. 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. Rats were either fed with HFD (model group) or a standard laboratory chow (control group) for 15 weeks before being sacrificed. The harvested thoracic aorta tissues were examined using transmission electron microscopy (TEM), and blood samples were assayed for biomarkers of pre-diabetes.TEM images showed that HFD induced profound pathological changes to the aortic wall layers, tunica intima and tunica media ultrastructures in the pre-diabetic rats as shown by apoptotic endothelial cells with pyknotic nuclei, ...

Abstract: A brief overview of mathematical models of contemporary applied hemodynamics is given. The special attention is paid to questions of development of effective computational algorithms implementing one-dimensional model. For this purpose TVD-monotonized schemes having the second order accuracy both in time and space are used. A number of test problems with analytical solutions are proposed. Questions of convergence and a choice of grid parameters for various schemes are investigated. The approaches using multiscale hemodynamics models are considered. An embedding of one-dimensional model of a single vessel into 0-dimensional model of vascular system is implemented. The possibility of using linear model for considered class problems of hemodynamics is analyzed ...
The radius of the pulmonary arteries and of the descending thoracic aorta in man was measured by angiographic techniques. Simultaneously with angiocardiography, pressure measurements were carried out, permitting calculation of radius-pressure (ΔR/ΔP) relationships. The results obtained by this method are similar to those obtained by other methods in which the vessel radius was measured more directly.. ...
To understand what happens when the heart stops, it is first important to understand the function of the heart. After all, when the heart stops its function ceases. The heart is a hollow organ that is made up of four chambers - right atrium, right ventricle, left atrium and left ventricle. Large blood vessels lead to and away from these chambers. Valves control blood flow between chambers and between the chambers and the large blood vessels.. The heart is a pump that receives low oxygen blood from the rest of the body (in the right atrium) and pushes this blood to the lungs (from the right ventricle). The blood is then oxygenated by the lungs and carbon dioxide is expelled. Then the blood returns to the heart (in the left atrium). From here, the oxygen-rich blood is pumped to the rest of the body (from the left ventricle). Therefore the heart is responsible for ensuring that there is sufficient oxygen available for all the cells in the body but blood also carries nutrients and other essential ...

Angiogenesis is an essential process whereby new blood vessels are formed from pre-existing vessels and occurs under both normal and pathophysiological conditions. growth element receptor 1 (sVEGFR-1). Therefore, FoxC1 appears to control angiogenesis by regulating two unique and opposing mechanisms; if so, vascular development could be identified, at least in part, Elvitegravir by a competitive balance between pro-angiogenic and anti-angiogenic FoxC1-controlled pathways. With this review, we describe the mechanisms by which FoxC1 regulates vessel growth and discuss how these observations could contribute to a more total understanding of the part of FoxC1 in pathological angiogenesis. Intro Under both physiological and pathological conditions, new blood vessels are created from pre-existing vessels through a process called angiogenesis, which is definitely exactly controlled by the balance between pro-angiogenic and anti-angiogenic factors. Vascular endothelial growth element (VEGF)-A is perhaps ...
Small Blood Vessel Problems: when your blood sugars stay too high for a long time, your small blood vessels may be harmed. This can cause problems with your eyes and kidneys. It can also cause problems with blood circulation to your feet and skin. High levels of sugar in your blood make it harder for the red blood cells to squeeze into very small blood vessels in your body. Sugar also makes the walls of your blood vessels less strong. When the red blood cells try to squeeze into the small blood vessels, they damage the vessels even more. This can make your blood vessels so weak they burst. If this happens, your eyes may be harmed and further problems, if not detected or treated, can lead to blindness (Diabetic Retinopathy). Your kidneys may also be damaged (Diabetic Nephropathy) and, if not looked after, may end up not working at all ...
The structure of vascular networks adapts continuously to meet changes in demand of the surrounding tissue. Most of the known vascular adaptation mechanisms are based on local reactions to local stimuli such as pressure and flow, which in turn reflects influence from the surrounding tissue. Here we present a simple two-dimensional model in which, as an alternative approach, the tissue is modeled as a porous medium with intervening sharply defined flow channels. Based on simple, physiologically realistic assumptions, flow-channel structure adapts so as to reach a configuration in which all parts of the tissue are supplied. A set of model parameters uniquely determine the model dynamics, and we have identified the region of the best-performing model parameters (a global optimum). This region is surrounded in parameter space by less optimal model parameter values, and this separation is characterized by steep gradients in the related fitness landscape. Hence it appears that the optimal set of ...
The process in which the anatomical structures of venous blood vessels are generated and organized. Veins are blood vessels that transport blood from the body and its organs to the heart. [GOC:dsf, PMID:16740480]
Diabetes mellitus significantly increases the risk for both small and large blood vessel complications e.g. diabetic eye problems and coronary heart disease. Vital organs such as the eye, kidney, heart and brain represent well− recognized preferential targets in patients with diabetes mellitus. The presence of such end−organ damage powerfully influences cardiovascular risk and the benefits of therapeutic interventions. Unfortunately, by the time symptoms develop or events occur as manifestations of target−organ damage, the disease process is already at an advanced stage. Although not traditionally viewed as an end−organ, it is altered structure and function of arterial small blood vessels that acts as the substrate for accelerated disease development and the increased occurrence of vascular events in patients with diabetes mellitus. The ability to detect and monitor sub−clinical damage, representing the cumulative and integrated influence of all risk factors in impairing arterial wall ...
High and low blood sugars can cause a variety of complications in the short term or the long-term. The primary cause of complications is that higher levels of blood sugar cause your blood to become more acidic. Over time, this causes a variety of complications related to your small blood vessels (microvascular) and your large blood vessels (macrovascular). The major long-term studies of diabetes, particularly the DCCT and EDIC, have found that people with diabetes who can keep their HbA1c below 7% experience significantly fewer complications. Most importantly, even a few years of better blood sugars can pay off with fewer complications even decades later. Increasingly, studies are using continuous glucose meters to measure not just average blood sugars, but also how often you spend in the normal range. There is some evidence and many suspect that time spent in this range may be more important than your HbA1c in
Macrovascular disease is related with large blood vessels like arteries, coronary and the sizable arteries in the brain and in the limbs. Diabetes and hyperglycemia are causes of development of microvascular disease. Mostly type 2 diabetes increases the risk of microvascular disease of kidneys, eyes and nerves. Microvascular disease can result into kidney failure, blindness, impotence (in men) and foot ulcers. Usually microvascular complications occur due to high level of sugar over time that is it happens after many years of diabetes.. Macrovascular complications of diabetes directly affect on the blood vessels. Because of high diabetes linings of the blood vessels get damaged and become narrow, as a result of this the blood supply decreases in the affected area. When blood vessels of the brain and heart get affected it results in heart attack or stroke. Problems of blood circulation, decreased sensation, and leg cramps happen due to affected blood vessels in the legs. For diabetes treatment ...
Vascular endothelial cells, the cells that line blood vessels, play roles both in the development of the circulatory system through providing blood vessel integrity, and its homeostasis through responding to changes in the local environment. During development, the acquisition of functionality of new blood vessels, some of which form from pre-existing ones through the process of angiogenesis, requires generation of endothelial lumens to carry the blood, during a process known as lumenogenesis. Throughout new blood vessel formation, endothelial cells go through coordinated and complex cell shape changes and polarity changes driven by Rho GTPase activity. Rho GTPases control intracellular actin dynamics and therefore affect all stages of new vessel growth. Precise control of Rho GTPase signalling is through a range of upstream activator and downstream effector proteins. Here we have investigated the role of two proteins involved in the antagonistic Rho/ Rac pathways during angiogenesis and lumen ...
The purpose of this study is to determine if women with chest pain and clean heart blood vessels have impaired blood flow to the heart due to problems with the small blood vessels that provide blood and oxygen to the heart. Impairment in the small blood vessels will be tested using ultrasound pictures of the heart, called myocardial contrast echocardiography. Since these small blood vessels are not seen in a coronary angiogram, which is an x-ray of the heart vessels using a dye containing iodine injected in the heart vessels, the problem may remain undiagnosed in women until the heart muscle becomes severely damaged.. A second purpose is to identify if there is a common trait in the population of women with this tiny blood vessel dysfunction, which will be investigated by checking blood levels of certain chemical and hormones related to heart disease. Finally, we would like to investigate the relationship between depression and stress, and heart disease. We will do this by measuring cortisol ...

Dear Penny Pritzker, Secretary of Commerce:. We urge you to intervene and to stop all orca experiments that involve satellite tagging and skin biopsies. Both of these barbaric methods can cause infections and deaths.. The death of orca L95 in March 2016 led the US responsible parties to halt all barbaric satellite "tags" pending a review. The "tags" are actually sharp barb-like blades that penetrate the skin. On October 4th a press conference was held by NOAA Fisheries. At that meeting the following information was given:. 1. The death of orca L95 was due to a fungal infection. The first dart attempt failed and due to human error it was not properly sterilized as per protocol. It was also done in waters that were known to have this fungus. The dart was shot into the area of the dorsal fin where large blood vessels are located.. 2. Unlike Canada that is not using satellite tags since it is deemed too invasive and alternatives are available, NOAA will only suspend the experiments on the endangered ...
There is a growing body of evidence on the importance of hemodynamic forces (i.e. blood flow and pressure) in regulating endothelial cell behavior and blood vessel formation. I was part of a recent discovery published in Nature Cell Biology that identified a new type of membrane protrusion-called inverse blebbing-at the apical membrane of endothelial cells. These inverse blebs drive the expansion of the lumen, which is a structure that allows blood to flow through the vessels. This process is therefore important in the formation of functional blood vessels ...
Aortobifemoral bypass surgery is used to bypass a narrowed or blocked part of the large blood vessels in the abdomen and groin.

For the study, researchers used lasers to create a clean split with two broken ends in the small blood vessels of the zebrafish brain. Then, through a specialized microscope, they observed what happened after the blood vessels were ruptured. The researchers noticed an unexpected repair process that started about a half hour after they induced the vessel damage. A macrophage showed up, and extended two "arms" from its body toward the ends of a broken blood vessel, using a variety of adhesion molecules to attach itself to the vessel. Then, it pulled the two broken ends together to mediate their repair. The macrophage left the scene after the blood vessel was repaired. The whole process took about three hours.. In addition, the researchers noted that usually only one macrophage arrived at the laser-wound site to mend the broken ends. Rarely, two macrophages arrived at the injury on their own-in these instances, each macrophage grabbed one of the broken ends of the blood vessel. However, the ...
Blood vessel formation. Artwork showing malignant (cancerous) tumour cells promoting the formation of new blood vessels, a process known as angiogenesis.

These blood vessels provide the tumour with oxygen and nutrients. - Stock Image C026/8534
While BOLD contrast reflects hemodynamic changes within capillaries serving neural tissue, it also has a venous component. Studies that have determined the relation of large blood vessels to the activation map indicate that veins are the source of the largest response, and the most delayed in time. It would be informative if the location of these large veins could be extracted from the properties of the functional responses, since vessels are not visible in BOLD contrast images. The present study describes a method for investigating whether measures taken from the functional response can reliably predict vein location, or at least be useful in down-weighting the venous contribution to the activation response, and illustrates this method using data from one subject. We combined fMRI at 3 Tesla with high-resolution anatomic imaging and MR venography to test whether the intrinsic properties of activation time courses corresponded to tissue type. Measures were taken from a gamma fit to the functional
The chemokine CXCL12/SDF1a has first been described in the immune system where it functions include chemotaxis for lymphocytes and macrophages, migration of hematopoietic cells from fetal liver to bone marrow and the formation of large blood vessels. Among other chemokines, CXCL12 has recently attracted much attention in the brain as it has been shown that it can be produced not only by glial cells but also by neurons. In addition, its receptors CXCR4 and CXCR7, which are belonging to the G-protein coupled receptors family, are abundantly expressed in diverse brain area, CXCR4 being a major co-receptor for human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)-1 entry. This chemokine system has been shown to play important roles in brain plasticity processes occurring during development but also in the physiology of the brain in normal and pathological conditions. For example, in neurons, CXCR4 stimulation has been shown regulate the synaptic release of glutamate and GABA. It can also act post-synaptically by activating a
An abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) is described by doctors as a pathological dilation of the main abdominal artery (aorta). Its diameter varies depending on age and sex; an abdominal aorta with a diameter of 3 cm or more is called an AAA. The risk increases with age, whereby women are markedly less often affected than men.Most AAAs cause no problems, that is, they are asymptomatic. However, the larger the size of the AAA, the greater the danger that this large blood vessel will rupture. Without treatment such a rupture quickly results in death. But even if patients reach a hospital on time and emergency surgery is still possible, about 40% of patients receiving open surgery and about 20% receiving endovascular surgery die.Screening aims to lower risk of death. In contrast, if an AAA is detected in time and a patient can undergo elective surgery, the chance of survival is considerably higher: Depending on the type of surgery (endovascular or open) in Germany between 1.3% and 3.6% of patients die ...

The heart has four chambers. Each chamber fills with blood and empties the blood into another chamber or a large blood vessel. Each of the four chambers has a heart valve which opens and closes when the blood fills or is expelled from the chamber. Unfortunately, either by an accident of birth or certain disease and degenerative conditions, the leaflets of these valves can be damaged, malformed or scarred leading to inability of the valve to open (stenosis) or to close correctly,(insufficiency or regurgitation, the leaky valve).. ...
When the child fever does not make calm. Children become fussy and a little inconvenient. Fever also makes the child difficult to sleep, because they feel uncomfortable. There are many causes of fever such as flu, immunization, and teething. There are many ways to reduce fever, one of them by way of compressing. If mom during this time to compress the child with cold water should immediately stop this habit. Compressing the right child is with warm water. Warm water effectively lower body temperature in children. By compressing warm water, then the center of body temperature will receive information that she around the body is warm. Then the body will automatically lower its temperature.. Compressing the right is in the folds of the body rather than on the forehead. So put the compress on the armpit and groin. This is because the body folds are bypassed by large blood vessels, which function to inform the brain to lower the bodys sushi. So the fever was gone. After the compress, dry the wet ...

Vascular remodeling is characterized by a reorganization of blood vessel geometry in response to physiological alterations in blood flow or to pathophysiological stimuli. Physiologically, long-term increases in blood flow will increase lumen diameter and thus accommodate increased blood supply, for example, after surgical anastomosis or arteriovenous fistula, whereas regression of the uterus postpartum is associated with dramatic reductions of arterial diameters up to complete vessel occlusion. Because of its strategic location, positioned at the interface between the flowing blood and the underlying vessel wall, the endothelium should serve as the primary mediator of flow-mediated mechanotransduction to initiate vascular remodeling processes. Indeed, reductions in arterial diameter by long-term decreases in blood flow are strictly endothelium-dependent.36 A physiological role for endothelial cell apoptosis to contribute to vessel regression was suggested by Langille et al,37 who demonstrated ...
During the development of the vascular network, blood vessels are constantly formed but many of them are only required temporarily. Just like a disused arm of a highly branched river, the flow of fresh blood through these vessels is interrupted and the organism begins to prune this side arm. In this way the vascular system regulates itself, optimizing its blood circulation by pruning and recycling the unnecessary vessels with reduced blood flow and blood pressure.. "This newly uncovered process is important for the understanding of blood vessel formation and regression on the cellular level, as this can also explain the extraordinary plasticity and changeability of the vascular system", says Anna Lenard, the first author of this publication. These investigations were performed on the zebrafish, as in this almost transparent fish the development of blood vessels can be observed in the living animal using modern microscopy techniques.. Relevance of self-fusion for cancer?. "How the cell recognizes ...

In a study that could point to novel therapies to prevent cancer spread, or metastasis, researchers have targeted a sugar that supports blood vessel growth in the tumor.
The skin is highly vascularized meaning that it has an extensive network of blood vessels just under the outer layer of the skin. Apart from nourishing the skin with oxygen and nutrients, and removing wastes and carbon dioxide, blood vessels also play a role in thermoregulation. Here it can widen (dilate) to allow heat within the body to pass out into the body thereby preventing the internal temperature from rising to dangerous levels. Conversely, when the environment is cold or the internal temperature is lower than normal, these blood vessels become narrow (constrict) thereby reducing the blood flow to the skin. Therefore less heat from within the body is lost to the environment.. Arteries carry oxygen rich blood from the heart to the skin and veins take away blood laden with wastes and carbon dioxide away from the skin. However, these blood vessels are large and slowly become smaller to be able to lie closely to the skin tissue. Arteries become smaller arterioles and eventually blood from ...
T-cell infiltration of solid tumors is associated with improved prognosis and favorable responses to immunotherapy. Mechanisms that enable tumor infiltration of CD8+ T cells have not been defined, nor have drugs that assist this process been discovered. Here we address these issues with a focus on VE-cadherin, a major endothelial cell-specific junctional protein that controls vascular integrity. A decrease in VE-cadherin expression is associated with tumor pathology. We developed an oligonucleotide-based inhibitor (CD5-2), which disrupted the interaction of VE-cadherin with its regulator miR-27a, resulting in increased VE-cadherin expression. Administration of CD5-2 in tumor-bearing mice enhanced expression of VE-cadherin in tumor endothelium, activating TIE-2 and tight junction pathways and normalizing vessel structure and function. CD5-2 administration also enhanced tumor-specific T-cell infiltration and spatially redistributed CD8+ T cells within the tumor parenchyma. Finally, CD5-2 treatment ...

A functional blood vessel is composed of the endothelium, the cell layer that forms the channel through which blood flows, and mural cells, the vascular smooth muscle cells (vSMC) and pericytes that serve to support and stabilize the endothelium. Proper physical and functional association between mural cells and endothelial cells (EC) causes EC to become quiescent. In contrast, the vasculature formed by a tumor is highly disorganized and exhibits decreased and abnormal association with mural cells, which allows the vessel to be unstable and proliferative. However, the mechanism(s) by which tumors prevent proper association between mural cells and the endothelium have not been well elucidated. Gap junctions (GJ) between EC and mural cells are required for EC-induced mural cell differentiation during vessel development and are involved in maintaining vasomotor tone and electrical conductance. Since GJ play an important role in cell-cell contacts and contact between mural cells and EC is disrupted ...
Scientists estimate that over 70 percent of human deaths worldwide are ultimately caused by damaged or failing blood vessels. Stroke and myocardial infarction are the leading causes of death as a consequence of hypertension, atherosclerotic deposits in the vessel walls or of blood clotting problems. Even cancer or the devastating late effects of diabetes are also closely linked to regulatory defects or damage in the vascular system. 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. "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. "We know now that vessels dynamically control their environment, thereby ...

New blood vessels branch out of preexisting ones is via a process called angiogenesis. Although this is essential for survival, development and wound healing, on the flip side, it also feeds and progresses malignant tumors, as well as other diseases. IBS scientists at the Center for Vascular Research, within the Institute for Basic Science (IBS), in collaboration with LIM Dae-Sik at KAIST, discovered a key regulator of this process, which could become a potential therapeutic target for treating diseases associated with the formation of new blood vessels.. Cells forming the wall of blood vessels, endothelial cells (ECs), are the main actors of angiogenesis. The formation of a new vascular wall is a multistep process that requires coordinated cell migration, proliferation, and junction formation. ECs need to stretch and move and to do that, they use their own "skeleton", the cytoskeleton. The ECs at the front of the migration route are called tip cells and the ones at the base the stalk cells. Tip ...
Cardiologists at the University of Maryland Medical Center in Baltimore have found that blood vessels do not dilate normally after a person eats a high fat meal.

Most lung tissue is made up of tiny clusters of air "balloons" (called alveoli). Each balloon is lined by a thin layer of cells and surrounded by a network of very small blood vessels. When you breathe in, air fills the balloons. The cells in the lining and the small blood vessels exchange oxygen from the air for carbon dioxide, which you then breathe out. The main pathway from the lungs to the outside of the body consists of the trachea (the large airway that begins at the back of the throat and continues down into the lungs) and the nostrils..

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.. These drugs, and other similar drugs that will now be developed under his guidance at Flinders, could help block the formation of new blood vessels, which is important in cancer medicine, and could also help reduce cell damage in the brain.. "My main research focus here at Flinders is to drive the development of new drugs to regulate nitric oxide, which is a very important molecule that modulates the tone and the growth of blood vessels," Professor Mangoni said.. "We also hope to develop similar molecules that act as tracers - these tracers would bind to certain areas of the body then show up on a scanner to ...
During organogenesis, vascular remodelling ensures that developing organs receive sufficient oxygen and nutrients. Factors that induce sprouting angiogenesis, which is essential for vascular remodelling, have been identified, but the mechanisms that terminate sprouting angiogenesis, thereby stabilising the vasculature, remain unclear. Here (p. 3859), Adi Ben Shoham, Elazar Zelzer and colleagues report that sphingosine-1-phosphate receptor 1 (S1P1) inhibits sprouting angiogenesis during vascular development. S1P1 is known to mediate interactions between endothelial cells and mural cells during vascular maturation. Now, though, the researchers report that vessel size aberrations and excessive sprouting occur in the limbs of S1P1-null mice before vessel maturation, which suggests that S1P1 acts as an anti-angiogenic factor independently of mural cells. The effect of S1P1 on sprouting is endothelial cell-autonomous, they report, and similar vascular abnormalities develop in S1p1 knockdown zebrafish ...
given general, regional or local anesthetic.. The skin overlying the vessel to be repaired on, is shaved and scrubbed with soap and antiseptic. Most frequently, the doctor will repair the vessel through a cut that is caused by an accident or other trauma. In cases, where an opening, that gives access to the vessel, does not exist, the doctor performs an incision to reach it by cutting through the fascia, skin, and muscle. Bleeding vessels are cauterized or ligated.. Large vessels that are big enough to be repaired on, are clamped and sewn back together. If part of the vessel has been lost, a replacement part of silastic or dacron can be used to replace it. Use of vessels from cadavers to replace damaged vessels is gaining in popularity, but the extent to which rejection of the transplanted vessel might be a problem, is unknown.. Some studies in dogs shown that rejection may be severe and cause up to about 65% failure rate of donor vessels; however, use of the Immunosuppressant Imuran has ...

An improved plasma vessel (i.e., plasma applicator) that provides effective cooling includes a plurality of generally linear tubes having a dielectric interior fluidly connected together by dielectric connectors. The tubes and connectors are joined together to form a leak-tight plasma vessel. A cooling system surrounding the improved plasma vessel includes a rigid cooling plate and a deformable thermal transfer material disposed between the plasma vessel and the cooling plate. After use or at an operators discretion, the plasma vessel can be removed from the cooling system and a new vessel may be inserted in its place. Alternatively, the used vessel may be refurbished and re-inserted into the cooling system. The new or refurbished vessel may or may not be of the same size or configuration as the used vessel. Thermal contact between the cooling system and the new or refurbished vessel, however is maintained through the deformable thermal transfer material.
In a novel study, University of North Carolina and the College of Arts and Sciences scientists have identified a novel mechanism that triggers blood vessel growth.
The maintenance of tissues of virtually all organs depends on a sufficient blood supply. During embryogenesis, primitive blood vessels are formed de novo by the aggregation of angioblasts, a process that is termed vasculogenesis. In postnatal life, the development of new blood vessels is restricted to the female reproductive tract (during the ovulatory cycle) and to sites of wound healing, and occurs through a process called angiogenesis, i.e. the sprouting of new vessels from the preexisting vasculature. However, neovascularization can also occur under pathological conditions, e.g. tumor cells can switch on angiogenesis. New blood vessels bring in nutrients and proteins, so the tumor mass can expand. In fact, neovascularization appears to be one of the crucial steps in the transition of a tumor from a small cluster of malignant cells to a visible macroscopic tumor capable of spreading to other organs via the vasculature throughout the body. The association of tumor growth with the development of a

The proteins involved and differentially expressed in the early response of the endothelial cell to irradiation are studied by broad-spectrum methods (proteomic analysis) to model the response and characterise the essential participants playing a role in initiation and progression of the pathological phenotype. This approach via the biology of complex systems will allow an initial model of the endothelial response to irradiation and the persistence of its dysfunction to be obtained. Subsequently, the correlation explored between early biological effects and later biological effects will be validated in vivo by conventional radiopathology approaches involving innovative preclinical transgenic animal models. Study of the in vivo contribution of the vascular compartment in initiation and progression of radiation-induced lesions is in fact confronted with a technological barrier. The possibility of switching off a gene in a specific cellular compartment with the Cre-lox technology opens new ...
When was the last time anyone ever asked you about your endothelial health?. NEVER!. Its estimated that there are approximately 60,000 miles of blood vessels in the adult body. These blood vessels include arteries, veins, and capillaries. They are all protected by a microscopic inner lining of endothelial cells, which are commonly called the endothelium. Its important to note that these cells line the entire circulatory system from the inside of your heart all the way down to your smallest capillary. When added up, the volume of these endothelial cells would cover the surface area of 4 to 8 tennis courts depending upon the size of the individual. Thats amazing since the endothelium is only one cell thick and cant be seen by the human eye.. Once discovered the endothelium was classified as an inert membrane whose primary function was to keep the blood in the circulatory system and out of the bodys tissues and organs. Research over the last 25 years has shown that your endothelium is an ...

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. The gels mimicked the extracellular matrix (ECM), the structural mesh of proteins on which cells build tissues and organs.. As the pair reported in Nature Communications, the gel experiments produced some intriguing results. When the gels were soft like Jell-O or rigid like a hard rubber eraser, the endothelial cells wouldnt form tight cell-cell junctions. (These junctions integrity is crucial to blood vessels. When theyre too loose, they leak, causing swelling or edema.) But cells grown on gels about as stiff as muscle flattened out and joined together securely.. Their next challenge was to find the same effects in vivo. By turning up expression of lysyl oxidase (LOX)-an ...

For disclaimers, see Part 1. Part 4. Chapter Four. Regina pulled the large, clear plastic clipboard across the chest high counter and studied the lab values for the patient in room ten. They guessed by his weight and body structure that he was approximately sixteen-years old. With no means of identifying him, he remained a John Doe and in the twenty-four hours since he was admitted to the hospital, there had been no frantic phone calls from parents looking for a missing child or family members to stand vigil at his bedside while his battered body hung tenuously in the balance between life and death. His condition was critical and his prognosis guarded. Both would remain so until the pressure from the swelling in his brain resolved. The neurosurgeons were successful in removing the large blood clot that formed on the outer sheath of his brain as a result of the blunt trauma to his head, but no one could predict what his neurological status was going to be until he woke up. Since the boy was under ...
Glad to hear all is well. I know how scary it can be. My mom passed away at 43 from a blood clot and my dad passed away at 65 from cancer. In 2006 I was diagnosised with cancer and two weeks after found out I had a complication of a large blood clot. I feel like God gave me both to tell me to get over being scared and just live your life which is what I am doing now. At my last check up I was cancer free but still have the silly blood clot to deal with just as a reminder I think. Hugs to you ...

A sample vessel may comprise a tubule having an opening for receiving a sample material and at least one compressible section, a generally rigid container receiving at least a portion of the tubule; and an interface in fluid communication with the opening in the tubule. The at least one compressible section may have a wall constructed at least partially from a material having sufficient flexibility to permit compression of opposed sections of the wall into contact. The interface may facilitate delivery of a sample material to the tubule through the opening. A sample vessel may also comprise a tubule having a plurality of lumens and a wall constructed at least partially from a material having sufficient flexibility to permit compression of opposed sections of the wall into contact with one another and a pressure gate connecting at least two lumens to permit selective fluid flow between the at least two lumens.
If stretched out, the blood vessels in a human body would reach more than twice around the earth. The complex circulatory system nourishes every cell of our body and proper development of new blood vessels is crucial for embryonic development. In the current study, the scientists demonstrated for the first time that the enzyme glutaredoxin 2 has an essential role during cardiovascular development. Glutaredoxin 2 belongs to a family of enzymes that convey specific signals within cells. In previous studies, the same researchers have shown that glutaredoxin 2 is indispensable for nerve cell survival during embryonic brain development. To reduce the number of laboratory mice used, the team was running most of their experiments in zebrafish that were genetically modified so that the circulatory system glowed in a green fluorescent colour. As the young zebrafish is completely transparent, the scientists could follow the growth of the fluorescent blood vessels directly under the microscope. When levels ...
Angiogenesis is an essential process during normal tissue growth and in response to wound healing. It is vital for the development of new connective tissue and small blood vessels from pre-existing vessels.

Diabetes Cause: Blood vessel damage caused by processed food. Initially, the kidneys protect against damage by elevating uric acid in the blood. But once the blood vessels are highly damaged, less blood can flow through them to nourish, so kidney benelles purposefully "sweeten the blood" to keep other benelles alive with less. The super-sweet blood kills the kidneys ...

Is there any treatment for stroke?. Since 85% of all strokes are ischemic (blocked blood vessel), the treatment depends on which kind of stroke the person has had. There is an option of intravenous medication called tPA (recombinant tissue plasminogen activator), which is given to the patient 3 to 4.5 hours before the symptoms onset. The patients who have a blockage in a large blood vessel are offered a procedure called as Mechanical Thrombectomy, which involves removing the blockage in the blood vessel and restores the blood supply. This procedure is performed using a small nick in the groin and there is no open surgery involved. Recent trials have shown that patients do exceedingly well post mechanical thrombectomy and have a greater chance to live life independently.. The most important of stroke care is not the doctor or hospital, it is the Patient. As most stroke attacks that occur are painless, patients tend to ignore their symptoms and delay their treatment. If the patient and family are ...
Tubulin-binding vascular-disrupting agents (VDA) are currently in clinical trials for cancer therapy but the factors that influence tumor susceptibility to these agents are poorly understood. We evaluated the consequences of modifying tumor vascular morphology and function on vascular and therapeutic response to combretastatin-A4 3-O-phosphate (CA-4-P), which was chosen as a model VDA. Mouse fibrosarcoma cell lines that are capable of expressing all vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) isoforms (control) or only single isoforms of VEGF (VEGF120, VEGF164, or VEGF188) were developed under endogenous VEGF promoter control. Once tumors were established, VEGF isoform expression did not affect growth or blood flow rate. However, VEGF188 was uniquely associated with tumor vascular maturity, resistance to hemorrhage, and resistance to CA-4-P. Pericyte staining was much greater in VEGF188 and control tumors than in VEGF120 and VEGF164 tumors. Vascular volume was highest in VEGF120 and control tumors ...
Anna and Hope have only known life together. Their mother Jill gave birth to the conjoined twins on Dec. 29, 2016 at Texas Childrens Pavilion for Women, weighing a combined 9 lbs. 12 oz.. Delivered via Caesarean-section, Anna and Hope were conjoined at their chest and abdomen, through the length of their torso and shared the chest wall, the lining of the heart, diaphragm and liver. In addition, they had a large blood vessel connecting their hearts. The Richards family, from North Texas, learned Jill was carrying conjoined twins during a routine ultrasound. They temporarily relocated to Houston in order to deliver at Texas Childrens and be close to the girls during their hospital stay.. Dr. Olutoye is a pediatric surgeon at Texas Childrens Hospital. He started treating the girls even before they were born. Hes known how badly their parents have dreamed of separation. "First question parents ask is what will be the outcome for my children," said Olutoye. "And are they going to be ...
Supravalvular aortic stenosis (SVAS) is an uncommon vascular defect causing blood flow obstruction that usually develops in the first few years of life.. This defect is a narrowing (stenosis) of the large blood vessel that carries blood from the heart to the rest of the body (the aorta), especially at major branch points.. The condition is described as supravalvular because the section of the aorta that is narrowed is located just above the valve that connects the aorta with the heart (the aortic valve).. Isolated SVAS is caused by genetic changes in the elastin gene (ELN) that can be passed from parent to child. Elastin defects are associated with connective tissue abnormalities, such joint problems, hernias, and cardiovascular disease. In children with Williams syndrome, the elastin gene is deleted along with 25-27 other genes that cause developmental delays and hormone problems. The elastin gene provides instructions for making a protein called tropoelastin. Elastin is the major component of ...
Automated image processing has the potential to assist in the early detection of diabetes, by detecting changes in blood vessel diameter and patterns in the retina. This paper describes the development of segmentation methodology in the processing of retinal blood vessel images obtained using non-mydriatic colour photography. The methods used include wavelet analysis, supervised classifier probabilities and adaptive threshold procedures, as well as morphology-based techniques. We show highly accurate identification of blood vessels for the purpose of studying changes in the vessel network that can be utilized for detecting blood vessel diameter changes associated with the pathophysiology of diabetes. In conjunction with suitable feature extraction and automated classification methods, our segmentation method could form the basis of a quick and accurate test for diabetic retinopathy, which would have huge benefits in terms of improved access to screening people for risk or presence of diabetes ...
An aneurysm occurs when a blood vessel becomes abnormally large or balloons outward. The abdominal aorta is a large blood vessel that supplies blood to your abdomen, the pelvis, and legs. When a weak area of the abdominal aorta grows, it is called an abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA). AAA can develop in anyone, but it is primarily seen in men over 60 with one or more risk factors. The larger the aneurysm, the more likely it is to rupture which can cause massive internal bleeding and can be fatal. When diagnosed early, abdominal aortic aneurysms can be treated, or even cured, with highly effective and safe treatments ...
In human anatomy, the axillary artery is a large blood vessel that conveys oxygenated blood to the lateral aspect of the thorax, the axilla (armpit) and the upper limb. Its origin is at the lateral margin of the first rib, before which it is called the subclavian artery. After passing the lower margin of teres major it becomes the brachial artery. The axillary artery is often referred to as having three parts, with these divisions based on its location relative to the Pectoralis minor muscle, which is superficial to the artery. First part - the part of the artery medial to the pectoralis minor Second part - the part of the artery posterior to the pectoralis minor Third part - the part of the artery lateral to the pectoralis minor. The axillary artery is accompanied by the axillary vein, which lies medial to the artery, along its length. In the axilla, the axillary artery is surrounded by the brachial plexus. The second part of the axillary artery is the reference for the locational descriptions ...
