in·ter·sti·tial flu·id

the fluid in spaces between the tissue cells, constituting about 16% of the weight of the body; closely similar in composition to lymph.
Synonym(s): tissue fluid

(in'tĕr-stish'ăl flū'id)
The fluid in spaces between the tissue cells, constituting about 16% of the weight of the human body; closely similar in composition to lymph.

interstitial fluid

Extracellular fluid lying is small spaces around and between cells.

interstitial fluid

or

intercellular fluid

a liquid (also called LYMPH when inside lymphatic vessels) that bathes all the cells of the body, and acts as a connecting link between the blood and the cells. An average human male with 42 litres of total body water would have about 7 litres of interstitial fluid.

Interstitial fluid

The fluid between cells in tissues. Referred to as the liquid subtance of the body.

As discussed previously, venous edema results from the extravasation of interstitial fluid into the interstitial space due to increased capillary filtration pressure or low fluid oncotic pressure.
Aliquots (1 g/L) of the interstitial fluid or conditioned cell-culture medium (CM) were incubated with 0.4 mg of antibody-coated beads for 1 h at 25 [degrees]C.
It is thought that up to 90% of interstitial fluid is reabsorbed into the venous capillaries' via colloid pressure (the pressure exerted by the large molecules in the blood, draining fluid into the bloodstream from the surrounding tissue).
[11] developed mathematical models for nonthermosensitive liposomal drug delivery, without considering the interaction between drug and proteins in blood plasma or interstitial fluid. El-Kareh and Secomb [12] used mathematical models to determine tumour cell uptake of thermosensitive liposome-mediated doxorubicin, but their model was formulated on a simplified tumour cord geometry, without accounting for the influence of blood and lymphatic vessels and the interstitial fluid flow, nor drug binding with proteins.
This Phase II development, which includes optimising the sensing system for its glucose response in the presence of blood and interstitial fluid matrix components, is expected to be completed in mid-2010.
There is also a need to ensure that the serum albumin is high enough to facilitate the movement of interstitial fluid back into the circulation (Charra, 2007).
Imatinib may cause vasodilatation and fluid retention due to inhibition of the PDGFR kinase that regulates interstitial fluid pressure.
Background & Purpose: Lymphedema is a chronic condition characterized by the abnormal accumulation of interstitial fluid, due to insufficiency of the lymphatic system.
Bedside cerebral microdialysis allows frequent sampling of specific molecular substances within the interstitial fluid including but not limited to markers of energy metabolism (glucose, lactate, and pyruvate), excitotoxicity (glutamate), and phospholipid degradation (glycerol).
The system's continuous glucose sensor is inserted under the skin, measuring glucose in the interstitial fluid found between the body's cells and relaying the information back to the transmitter every five minutes.
