abstract

  • The mouse-tail model has pathologic findings that are similar to clinical lymphedema, including fat deposition, fibrosis, and inflammation. Adipogenesis in response to lymphatic fluid stasis closely resembles this process in obesity. This model therefore provides an excellent means with which to study the molecular mechanisms that regulate the pathophysiology of lymphedema.
