Researchers have identified a previously unknown feature of human anatomy with implications for the function of all organs, most tissues and the mechanisms of most major diseases. Published March 27 in Scientific Reports, a new study co-led by an NYU School of Medicine pathologist reveals that layers of the body long thought to be dense, connective tissues — below the skin's surface, lining the digestive tract, lungs and urinary systems, and surrounding arteries, veins and the fascia between muscles — are instead interconnected, fluid-filled compartments.
