Abstract

The reticuloendothelial system is involved in a variety of biological processes. Its functions include the clearance of bacteria, fibrin, and foreign particles from the blood stream, the detoxification of toxic substances, the neutralization of enzymes, the phagocytosis and transfer of lipids, the synthesis and hydrolysis of cholesterol, the conjugation of steroids, and the first step of the immune response, the phagocytosis and transfer of antigen.
