The spleen is a type of blood cell filter…The most common function of the spleen is its blood cleansing ability to remove old cells. Blood passing through the spleen undergoes thorough squeezing by contracting and relaxing its vessels. Therefore, it is to be expected that fragile red blood cells would not withstand the trauma. For this reason, many of the red blood cells destroyed in the body have their final demise in the spleen. The spleen literally weeds out any worn out red blood cells.
The spleen also contains many large phagocytic reticular endothelial cells (white blood cell scavengers), and the venous sinuses are lined with similar cells. The cells act as a cleansing system for the blood, similar to that in the venous sinuses of the liver. When the blood is invaded by infectious agents, the reticular endothelial cells of the spleen rapidly remove debris, bacteria, parasites, etc.
Also, in many infectious processes, the spleen enlarges in the same manner that lymph glands enlarge and then performs its cleansing function even more adequately. Much of the spleen is filled with white pulp, which is in reality a large quantity of lymphocytes (white blood cells) and plasma cells.
These function exactly the same way in the spleen as in the lymph glands to cause either humoral (antibody) or lymphocytic (white blood cell defense) immunity against toxins, bacteria, and so forth.
