Identification of protein crucial to lymphatic system development

Lymphatic vessels form a circulatory system that plays an important role in controlling the amount of fluid in tissues, and allowing the immune system to identify and target threats. When the lymphati...

Intestinal lymphatic vasculature: structure, mechanisms and functions

The intestinal lymphatic vasculature has a range of functions, from maintenance of interstitial fluid balance to transport of antigens, cells, dietary lipids and fat-soluble vitamins. In this Review, ...

Elephantiasis patients more likely to have depression

Many patients infected with filarial worms have no symptoms, but those who develop disfiguring lymphatic filariasis—more commonly known as elephantiasis—often struggle with discrimination and reje...

[Comment] Elimination of lymphatic filariasis in areas

In The Lancet Infectious Diseases, Sébastien DS Pion and colleagues1 report the effect of 3 years of biannual administration of albendazole for the elimination of lymphatic filariasis in areas with c...

Mural lymphatic endothelial cells regulate meningeal angiogenesis in the zebrafish

Bower et al. describe a population of mural lymphatic endothelial cells found along meningeal blood vessels in the adult zebrafish. These mural cells are distinct from meningeal lymphatic vessel cells...

Metastasis: Lymphatic detours for cancer

The growth factor MIDKINE, which is secreted by skin tumours called melanomas, stimulates the formation of lymphatic vessels at distant lymph nodes and organ sites, paving the way for metastatic cance...

Apelin modulates pathological remodeling of lymphatic endothelium after myocardial infarction.

Lymphatic endothelium serves as a barrier to control fluid balance and immune cell trafficking to maintain tissue homeostasis. Long-term alteration of lymphatic vasculature promotes edema and fibrosis...

Investigating the Short-Term Effects of Manual Lymphatic Drainage and Compression Garment Therapies on Lymphatic Function Using Near-Infrared Imaging.

Lymphedema is a chronic peripheral swelling caused by a dysfunction of the lymphatic system, leading to discomfort and loss of upper limb movement. Therapies to treat or manage this swelling have limi...

An Experimental Lymphedema Animal Model for Assessing the Results of Lymphovenous Anastomosis.

The lymphatic system is the least studied of the body's systems, and as a result its contribution to human health and diseases is not well known. The failure of the lymphatic system to drain extravasa...

Treatment of TNF-Tg Mice with Anti-TNF Restores Lymphatic Contraction, Repairs Lymphatic Vessels, and May Increase Monocyte/Macrophage Egress.

Recent studies have demonstrated that there is an inverse relationship between lymphatic egress and inflammatory arthritis in affected joints. As a model, TNF-transgenic (TNF-Tg) mice develop advanced...

Simultaneous measurements of lymphatic vessel contraction, flow and valve dynamics in multiple lymphangions using optical coherence tomography.

Lymphatic dysfunction is involved in many diseases including lymphedema, hypertension, autoimmune responses, graft rejection, atherosclerosis, microbial infections, cancer and cancer metastasis. Expan...
