Hyaluronan is a constituent of the extracellular matrix in subsets of many solid tumor types, including prostate, breast, colon, pancreatic, ovarian and gastric where it may increase resistance to anti-cancer therapeutic agents and contribute to an elevation in tumor interstitial fluid pressure.
The miniaturized SENCELL is designed to continuously measure glucose in the interstitial fluid for a long term duration that is comparable or longer than existing product alternatives.
Cerebrospinal fluid is a proximal fluid in direct contact with the brain interstitial fluid that potentially reflects biochemical changes related to [the] central nervous system, making it a promising source of biomarkers in neurological disorders such as AD," they added.

Lymphedema (lymphoedema in British English), also known as lymphatic obstruction, is a condition of localized fluid retention and tissue swelling caused by a compromised lymphatic system, which normally returns interstitial fluid to the thoracic duct and then the bloodstream.
The key feature of these solutions is that the solutes can cross from the plasma to the interstitial fluid, thus distributing the infused volume across the whole ECF compartment.
Along with an insulin pump, CGMs, which measure glucose levels in the interstitial fluid, are a component of the artificial pancreas system, along with an insulin infusion pump, which is being studied in people with type 1 diabetes as a closed loop system of monitoring glucose levels and automatically dispensing the appropriate amount insulin, as determined by a computer algorithm.

An expansion of interstitial fluid volume may not be detected readily, but an excess of several liters causes visible and palpable swelling.
As such, it seems feasible that we might take advantage of the fact that secreted proteases/peptidases in the tumor microenvironment generate proteolytic products, also referred to as circulating peptides, and these are continuously released into interstitial fluid, lymph, eventually making their way into the bloodstream (7).
While we were able to verify that the mice quickly regained their lost cognitive skills and confirmed the decrease in amyloid beta peptides in the interstitial fluid that surrounds brain cells, we did not find any evidence that the drug cleared the plaques from their brains.
Interstitial fluid is a clear watery, straw coloured fluid similar to blood plasma, which circulates through the porous capillary walls into the interstices or spaces between the cells that form the tissues.
