White blond, Lympha Nutritia. ia. A name given to the fluid contained in the lymphatic vessels and thoracic duct of animals, which have been made to fast for 24 hours. According to Chevreul, the lymph of the dog contains water, fibrin, albumen, common salt, subcarbonate of soda, phosphates of lime and magnesia, and carbonate of lime. The properties and composition of lymph vary somewhat according to the part whence the lymphatic vessels obtain it. Generally, it is under the form of a transparent, slightly alkaline fluid, sometimes of a madder-red or yellowish colour,-of a spermatic odour, and saline taste; soluble in water, - the solution becoming turbid, when mixed with alcohol. When left to itself, it coagulates. The clot or solid portion becomes of a scarlet red, if put in contact with oxygen; and of a purple red, if placed in carbonic acid. Like the blood, the lymph consists of a fluid-Liquor lymphae-in which lymph corpuscles or globules are suspended. The lymph is probably the product of internal absorption in different parts of the body: it then flows along the lymphatic vessels, uniting with the chyle, and is poured with it into the veins; thus becoming one of the materials of the blood. According to others, the blood, when it reaches the arterial radicles, is divided into two portions, - the one red, which is carried to the heart, - the other serous or white, which is absorbed by the lymphatic vessels, and constitutes the lymph. By others, again, the lymphatics are considered to be the vessels of return for the white blood sent to certain tissues. White blood, however, has probably no existence. The word lymph is sometimes used unhappily by the surgeon to signify liquor sanguinis.

A clear fluid found in the lymphatic vessels and finally poured into the great veins at the nape of the neck. Chemically considered it consists of the substances found in the plasma of the blood.
