A team of Israeli scientists at the Weizmann Institute managed to grow lymphatic cells in the lab for the first time ever.
Dr. Brorson describes adipose tissue in lymphedema.
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 article describes the nature of cellulite, including various conflicting theories about this little-researched disorder.
This study investigates whether a monoclonal gammopathy of unknown significance (MGUS) could be a causal factor in progressive lymphedema.
Subcutaneous Adipose Tissue Fatty Acid Desaturation in Adults With and Without Rare Adipose Disorders
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.
This review summarizes the evidence in support of a link between lymphatic vessels and adipose tissue biology.
