The purpose of this study was to demonstrate a safe and convenient approach to identifying lymphatic vessels
draining from the prostate and to validate the SLN concept in prostate cancer.
In a manner similar to the reported method to evaluate microvessel density, (25) 20 fields were selected in the areas with high number of lymphatic vessels
, and lumens of lymphatic vessels
were counted in the X 20 objective field (1.
LOUIS, April 8, 2011 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Saint Louis University researchers have identified a novel mechanism to control the traffic of cells and fluid from tissues to lymphatic vessels
After noticing vessel-like patterns in the distribution of immune cells on his slides, he tested for lymphatic vessels
and there they were.
The idea is that a radiolabeled or otherwise labeled anti-integrin a4beta1 antibody could be injected into the lymphatic circulation, and it would only bind to and highlight the lymphatic vessels
that have been activated by the presence of a tumor," she explaned.
Pathologic diagnosis of this clinical entity is generally based upon the presence of tumor emboli within dilated lymphatic vessels
and a surrounding lymphocytic reaction in the dermis (2, 5; Figure 3).
Animal models show that after initial exposure, HIV replicates within the dendrite cells of the skin and mucosa before spreading through lymphatic vessels
and developing into a systemic infection .
There, he was diagnosed with a lymphatic malformation, which results from an abnormal develop-ment of the lymphatic vessels
that drain fluid from tissues.
Progressive resistance exercises may also cause self-contraction of the lymphatic vessels
by regulating sympathetic nerves innervating these vessels.
Adult worms are found in the lymphatic vessels
and lymph nodes of humans only; there is no animal reservoir (3).
It can be permanently mounted in a variety of mounting media and is suitable for both Iimmunohis-tochemistry and in-situ hybridization applications including HPV, CMV, EBV, p63, TTF-1, Ki-67, and other target antigens such as blood and lymphatic vessels
, and basal and myoepithelial cells.
spread rapidly, moving from the skin to the blood and lymphatic vessels
