 The reticuloendothelial system by Dr. Howard Loomis
That is because this very important system is not composed of visceral organs, but rather macrophages that are found in connective tissue.
The ECF is composed of the fluid in the blood stream (20%) and the fluid outside the blood stream (80%) in the connective tissues.
It is the macrophages in the fluid of connective tissues that comprises the reticuloendothelial system, or the macrophage system as it is sometimes called.

 Medmicro Chapter 1a
The lymphoid system is divided into 1) central lymphoid organs, the thymus and bone marrow, and 2) peripheral lymphoid organs, lymph nodes, the spleen, and mucosal and submucosal tissues of the alimentary and respiratory tracts.
The lymphoid system consists of organs that house 1) T and B cells that are responsible for antigen-specific immunity and 2) NK cells that are innately cytotoxic to tumor cells and cells expressing foreign antigens.
The system consists of 1) monocytes in the blood, 2) macrophages in the liver, spleen, lymph nodes, thymus, bone marrow, connective tissues, and submucosal tissues of the respiratory and alimentary tracts, 3) dendritic cells in lymph nodes, 4) Langerhans cells in skin, and 4) glial cells in the central nervous system.

 Reticuloendothelial system - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The reticuloendothelial system (RES), part of the immune system, consists of the phagocytic cells located in reticular connective tissue, primarily monocytes and macrophages.
These cells accumulate in lymph nodes and the spleen.
Mononuclear phagocytic system and lymphoreticular system are synonymous with RES.

Reticuloendothelial system uptake of infused 125I-trypsin in newborn and adult rats.
The immature reticuloendothelial system in newborns is poorly responsive to RES stimulation although it can be made even further inefficient by RES suppression.
The combination of RES immaturity and lack of response to stimulation may make newborns susceptible to proteolytic damage, especially during times of increased systemic levels of proteolytic enzymes.

Iron from the transfused erythrocytes is deposited in the reticuloendothelial system in the liver, spleen, and bone marrow.
Abnormal iron accumulation in the reticuloendothelial system does not damage the affected organs, thus is of little clinical significance.
In patients who have received more than 40 units of blood, the reticuloendothelial system is typically saturated with iron (10 g), and additional iron deposits are seen in the parenchymal cells of the liver, pancreas, and heart.

Hematologic system consists of the blood and the sites where blood is produced, including the bone marrow and the reticuloendothelial system (RES).
Blood floods through the vascular system and serves as a link between the body organs, the blood carries oxygen absorbed from the lungs and nutrients absorbed from the gastrointestinal tract to the body cells for cellular metabolism.
The gastrointestinal system may disclose complaints of nausea, vomiting (with specific questions as to the appearance of emesis [coffee grounds]), melena or dark stools, diarrhea, anorexia, and glossitis (inflammation of the tongue).

The immune system is constituted by a surprising variety of different cell types disseminated throughout the body and collectively defining one's capacity to mount an immune response.
In general, hematopoietic cells are highly mobile, moving with the flow of blood in the cardiovascular system or with the flow of lymph in the lymphatic system.
Many of these cells also cross-migrate between these two circulatory systems, and many migrate directly into the tissues, particularly under the influence of inflammatory cytokines with chemoattractive properties.

In: Chem Pharm Bull (Tokyo) (1991 Oct) 39(10):2630-2 ISSN: 0009-2363 The structural features of MVS-I, the major neutral polysaccharide isolated from the seeds of Malva verticillata L., were elucidated by controlled Smith degradation, methylation analysis, partial acid hydrolysis and enzymic degradation studies.
It showed a remarkable reticuloendothelial system potentiating activity in the carbon clearance test.
Chemical and spectroscopic studies demonstrated that the polysaccharide is rich in alpha-L-arabinofuranose residues and possesses mainly an alpha-1,5-linked L-arabino-beta-3,6-branched-D- galactan structure accompanied with rhamnogalacturonan type units.

 Immunoliposome targeting to CD4+ cells in human blood.
Liposomes were prepared from phospholipid formulations recognized or ignored by cells of the reticuloendothelial system (RES+ve or RES-ve, respectively).
The ability of these liposomes to interact with CD4+ve cells in purified leukocyte fractions or in whole blood has been determined.
These results suggest that RES-ve liposomes possessing surface-bound anti-Leu3A may provide a means of targeting antiviral agents to those cells at risk from HIV infection.
