This paper describes the process of the formation of lymphatic vessels in adults, including its dependence on interstitial fluid flow for vessel organization and the effects of environmental factors on lymphatic capillary evolution.
This study tested the effect of slowing or stopping the flow of lymph fluid on fatty tissue formation and inflammation, and how these changes regulate the expression of fat differentiation genes.
This study tested whether direct uptake of circulating free fatty acids by fat cells occurs in vivo in overnight postabsorptive humans and, if so, whether there are regional differences in uptake between lean and obese women and men
This study investigates whether a monoclonal gammopathy of unknown significance (MGUS) could be a causal factor in progressive lymphedema.
Altered fatty acid metabolism has been implicated in the development of obesity. This articles describes the study of elevated fatty acid activity as a potential indicator of metabolic risk.
