Lymphatic System and Immunity

Lymphatic System Fast Facts:

  • The immune system is a host defense system comprising many biological structures and processes within an organism that protects against disease.
  • To function properly, an immune system must detect a wide variety of agents, known as pathogens, from viruses to parasitic worms, and distinguish them from the organism's own healthy tissue.
  • The lymphatic system is part of the circulatory system and an important part of the immune system, comprising a network of lymphatic vessels that carry a clear fluid called lymph directionally towards the heart.
  • Disorders of the immune system can result in autoimmune diseases, inflammatory diseases and cancer.
