Scientists say they've discovered new human organ

Scientists say they've discovered new human organ

These "dynamically compressible and distensible sinuses" act as thoroughfares to transport critical fluids within organs and around the body. Previous scientist has actually now disclosed that the cells could advertise the spread of cancers cells beyond the body organs where they stemmed, recommended that a far better understanding of just how the interstitium functions might aid medical professionals produce brand-new therapy strategies to minimize the damages cancers cells trigger.

Because of its "dynamic" role in all these functions, the researchers say the interstitium should be called an organ in its own right.

The discovery could lead to a better understanding of diseases, such as how cancer can quickly spread through the body.

We are at a point in human civilization where some things seem absolute. Last year, an Irish surgeon discovered the mesentery, which connects the intestine to the abdomen.

The new organ is known as the Interstitium and it is found everywhere in our bodies, acting as a shock absorber in all places where tissues are moved or subjected to force. They identified the fluid as lymph, which contains infection-fighting white blood cells that drain into the lymphatic system. Using that definition, it could be the largest organ in the body, taking up a bigger volume than even our skin. It is made up of interconnected, fluid-filled compartments, and is supported by strong, flexible proteins.

The NRA's Twitter following has grown 27% since the Parkland shooting
During his sit down with Colion Noir from NRA TV , Mike shared how African-Americans can benefit from gun ownership. He said in the videos that his interview about black gun ownership in the USA was recorded a week before the march.

Kim Jong Un to Meet With South Korean President in April
It was the North Korean leader's first overseas trip since inheriting power after the death of his father, Kim Jong Il, in 2011. The date and place for these rare talks were made public after negotiations between high-level officials on Thursday.

The researchers were studying tissue in some patients' bile ducts when they noticed some odd pattern in the tissue surrounding the ducts.

Now, a team from New York University's School of Medicine, is asking for a re-think of the "previously unappreciated" tissue layers of the interstitium.

So, how did these fluid-filled spaces go undetected for so long? But with a little more study, the interstitium might officially become our 80th organ sometime soon.

No one saw these spaces before because of the medical field's dependence on the examination of fixed tissue on microscope slides, believed to offer the most accurate view of biological reality.

In this case, however, the researchers were using a new piece of equipment called Probe-based Confocal Laser Endomicroscopy (PCLE), which lets them look at internal tissues directly without cutting or damaging them.
