I need some help with the lymphatic system.  Although the mesenteric
lymph nodes primarily drain the intestines, do they also play a role
in draining  the mesenteries?  What set of lymph nodes are involve in
draining  fluid from the peritoneal cavity?  If there were to be a
high  concentration of antigens in the peritoneal cavity, could these
be absorbed by the mesenteries and then reach the mesenteric lymph

Any help, and especially a reference would be greatly appreciated.
