Lymphatic system – Organs associated and functions of lymphatic system

The lymphatic system is a vascular network of tubules and ducts that collect, filter and return lymph to blood circulation. Lymph is a clear fluid that comes from blood plasma, which exits blood vessels at capillary beds. This fluid becomes the interstitial fluid that surrounds cells. Lymph contains water, proteins, salts, lipids, white blood cells, […]
