Role of the Lymphatic System in Immunity is a part of the VCE Biology area of study ‘How do Cells Communicate?’ and subtopic ‘Responding to Antigens’. The lymphatic system plays a major role in the immune system. It produces and releases lymphocytes and other immune cells, such as macrophages and T-cells. These cells monitor, attack and remove pathogens from the body. Lymphoid organs include the spleen, bone marrow, lymph nodes and the thymus.
