    The lymphatic system is responsible for collecting fluid leaked from blood vessels, returning it to the blood system to maintain overall fluid balance. Lymphatic vessels also fulfill important immune functions by transporting leukocytes and antigens. The functional units of collecting lymphatic vessels are called the lymphangions. Some experimental and computational studies exist, however much still needs learnt about the transport mechanisms.
