Starling's seminal work on the absorption of fluids from connective tissue spaces (and Starling's hypothesis that the energy for transcapillary flow lies in the difference between hydrostatic and osmotic pressures across the capillary wall) has long formed the basis of much of experimental physiology. Related recent experimental evidence points to a more active role of the interstitium in controlling interstitial fluid pressure (IFP) which has significant implications for clinical oncology.
