Agroup of fluid-filled compartments researchers has termed the "interstitium". This looks like a mesh with the network of skin, gut, lungs, blood vessels, and muscles with a strong flexible protein. The interstitium is the largest organ of the body which has been unnoticed.The teams of the invention say that compartments may act as “shock absorbers” that protect body tissues from damage.They realized the interstitium layer drains into the lymphatic system which may also spread cancer as a noticed side effect – the network of vessels transporting lymph, which is involved in the body’s immune response and providing a way for fluid to move around the body.
