Lymphatic and Immune Systems


The Lymphatic and Immune Systems

The lymphatic system is responsible for the removal of excess fluids from body tissues and for the production of immune cells. Working in conjunction with the lymphatic system is the immune system, a collection of mechanisms within the body that protects against disease by identifying and killing pathogens and tumor cells. In this Web guide, we recommend online resources to learn about (or teach) the lymphatic and the immune systems for every level of expertise and interest.
