Vanishing Act: Lymphatic Vessels and Disappearing Bones

Vanishing Act: Lymphatic Vessels and Disappearing Bones

Patients with Generalized Lymphatic Anomaly (GLA) or Gorham-Stout Disease (GSD) develop ectopic lymphatics in bone and gradually lose bone. The process by which lymphatics invade bone is poorly understood.

On Thursday, June 18, at 12 noon ET (11am CT, 10am MT, 9am PT), Dr. Michael T. Dellinger will provide an overview of GLA and GSD, and discuss his latest research on the development of bone lymphatics in animal models of GLA and GSD in this free on-line Symposium: "Vanishing Act: Lymphatic Vessels and Disappearing Bones."

Registration is free and open to all thanks to LE&RN Supporting Members and Corporate Sponsors.
