Scientists May Just Have Discovered a New Human Organ

Newfound'organ could be the biggest in your body

The tissue contains interconnected, fluid-filled spaces that are supported by a lattice of thick collagen "bundles", Theise said.

The scientists reasoned that they didn't discover this organ before because it never showed up on a microscopic slide which they traditionally use for research. The method now used to study tissue involves samples being sliced thinly and then treated with chemicals. But this fixing process drains away fluid and causes the newfound fluid-filled spaces to collapse.

The interstitium is an organ that was recently discovered by researchers in the human body.

It has been called interstitium, named after the widespread, fluid-filled spaces within and between tissues all over the body, the study states.

Scientists Discover New Human Organ By Chance
Scientists have found a new organ in the body that no-one knew about before

One of the co-authors, published in the report, thinks it may be the body's largest organ.

The fluid-filled compartments are lined by unusual cells, the researchers note.

More research is likely to be needed to find out whether this improved understanding of the interstitium can be used to fight disease.

Previously, scientists had seen it but believed it was thought to be made up of dense connective tissue.

IN has yet to produce hemp, however, as their pilot program depended on clearance from the feds, which has not yet been given. McConnell's support is critical to helping us move hemp from research and pilot programs to full commercial production".

In his opinion, the interstitium acts as a source of lymph, the fluid vital to the functioning of immune cells and which carries infection-fighting white blood cells.

The new "organ" is called the interstitium and it's found everywhere in our bodies.

And, they found it exists all throughout the body, acting like a shock absorber in all places where tissues are moved or subjected to force. This technique allows researchers to image minute structures in living tissue with a camera and, generally, with a fluorescent tracer dye.

Krafcik declined to say whether he thought the crash was a setback for the industry or whether new regulations are needed. Earlier this year, it announced it was also ordering thousands of Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid minivans for its fleet .

"These were the remnants of the collapsed spaces", study author and pathologist Dr Neil Theise said. It was a series of interconnected cavities in this submucosal tissue level that not match any known anatomy. When a pathologist made slides out of this tissue, the cavities disappeared-a mystery that was later found to be a outcome of the slide-making process.

With the pCLE, the researchers noticed an odd "reticular pattern" in the tissue around the bile duct they were examining. The discovery of the instrument was done with the help of a confocal laser intrasung microscope, which "sees" the living tissues. Strangely, when Theise made biopsy slides out of the same tissue, the reticular pattern found by endomicroscopy disappeared. They wrote in the study that they observed spaces where fluid accumulates.

P.C. Benias et al., "Structure and distribution of an unrecognized interstitium in human tissues", Scientific Reports, doi:10.1038/s41598-018-23062-6, 2018. Dr. Michael Nathanson, chief of the digestive diseases section at Yale University School of Medicine, who was not involved with the study, told Live Science that "from the evidence presented it's quite possible they're correct".

Both the United Kingdom and global media have had a field day, with The Sun saying the "organ" hadn't "been noticed until now", despite the fact that the term interstitium has been used to describe this tissue for years.
