Cells of the reticuloendothelial system were recognized as essential to immunologic functions even before a unitary description of the RES was achieved. Metchnikoff, in the late 1800s, first identified phagocytes as important cells in protective immunity. Since then, an enormous amount of experimental data has confirmed the pivotal role of cells of the RES in immune responses.
