Explanation

Lymphatic capillaries, lymph nodes, and lymphatic vessels are the three main structural components of the lymphatic system. Lymph nodes are filters in which macrophages are concentrated. Blood is filtered here, and pathogens are ingested.

Lymphatic capillaries and lymphatic vessels are part of lymphatic circulation. The lymphatic system is closely associated with the cardiovascular system.
