Serum is a type of blood plasma that does not have any clotting factors because they have been removed by letting the blood clot first before the plasma is separated.
It really bad for some one to have it . What an understatement. That is a little like saying that it's "really bad" to have any disease! And does nothing to answer the ques…tion.. So, basically, Edema is observable swelling from fluid accumulation in body tissues and most commonly occurs in the feet and legs, where it is referred to as peripheral edema. Most people see it primarily in the ankles. The swelling is the result of the accumulation of excess fluid under the skin in the spaces within the tissues. . Lymphedema occurs when your lymph vessels are unable to adequately drain lymph fluid and can be either Primary or Secondary. Lymphedema can't be cured. It can, and generally does, result in long-term physical, psychological, and social issues for patients. The symptoms are excessive swelling in the area of your body where the lymph system was damaged. The best physical treatment is called Manual Lymph Drainage Massage (this treatment focuses on minimizing the swelling and controlling the pain), compression stockings, diet, and weight management.
lymph caries digested and absorbed fat from intestine and drains excess fluid from extra cellular space back into blood. Lymph is basically blood plasma without the blood c…ells, the fluid that is forced out of capillaries to clean and nourish cells. The part of it that does not return to the blood vessels is picked up by lymph vessels and eventually returned to the blood.
Lymph is mainly leakage from blood vessels, thus it is almost identical EXCEPT for the absence of Red Blood cells.

Blood comprises of four main parts plasma, serum, red blood cells (cells that carry oxygen) and white blood cells (cells that fight foreign bodies. . Plasma is a transparent …and yellowish fluid part of the blood. This is the part of the blood that contains fibrin and other clotting factors. About 55% of the total blood volume is Plasma . The main part of blood plasma is water. .
Serum is in the blood vessels (circulating blood). Lymph is the plasma that diffuses through the arteries (used to be part of the blood) into the lymph system. Once it flows t…hrough the lymph system, it will rejoin with blood through veins.
lava is the molten form of rocks and plasma is a ionized form of gas.
the major difference is that lymph nodes are encapsulated organ,each one of them has a germinal center where t and b cell filtrateslymph.
tonsil are localized to oral cavity... lymph nodes present everywhere... tonsils provides B-cell immunity lymph nodes T-cell
the difference between blood, and lymph, is blood is a substance that is suppose to carry oxygen throughout the body. lymph nodes (lymph for short) is a 2 millimeter circle th…at swells with white killer cells ready to strike any time at any moment. if the body as HIV, or AIDS to begin with, the red disease will spew more of it into the killer cells, thereby making it it's own henchman. then it's open to new diseases, and so forth.
Location also LYMPH . - Lymph means clear water and it is derived from the fluid and protein that has been squeezed out of the blood (i.e. blood plasma). - It is a pale flui…d that bathes the tissues of an organism, maintaining fluid balance, and removes bacteria from tissues; it enters the blood system by way of lymphatic channels and ducts. - Prominent among the constituents of lymph are lymphocytes and macrophages, the primary cells of the immune system with which the body defends itself from invasion by foreign microorganisms. - It contains fluid from the intestines called chyle, which contains proteins and fats. INTERSTITIAL FLUID - Interstitial fluid (or tissue fluid, or intercellular fluid) is a solution which bathes and surrounds the cells of multicellular animals. - To prevent a build-up of tissue fluid surrounding the cells in the tissue, the lymphatic system plays a part in the transport of tissue fluid. - Tissue fluid can pass into the surrounding lymph vessels (now called Lymph), and eventually ends up rejoining the blood.
There are many differences that can be found between blood andlymph fluid. The cells that are present in blood includeerythrocytes, leucocytes, and plates. In lymph fluid the …only cellspresent are lymphocytes. Blood contains hormones and plasmaproteins making blood rich in proteins. Lymph fluid has very fewproteins present. Blood contains more glucose, amino acids, andoxygen than lymph fluid. However, lymph fluid has more carbondioxide than blood.
when lymph fluid is contained inside lymph vessels or lymph node(lymphatic system) it is called lymph whereas when it is squeezed out of cells b/w the cell membranes it is cal…led tissue fluid
The difference between gas and plasma is the physical structure. The gas turns into a plasma when the gas becomes ionized and loses its positively charged particles. They are …similar because they both have no definite shape, but plasma responds strongly to magnetic fields and also emits 5x the electricity it puts in.
The spleen is much larger than a lymph node, and acts as an emergency reservoir of blood. Otherwise, the two are similar.
