Hi,

As one might guess, mainly lymphocytes (both B lymphocytes [which can be quiescent or activated to produce antibodies] and T lymphocytes) although in the lymph nodes there are also present macrophages and follicular dendritic cells.

Circulating lymph has a composition very similar to interstitial fluid from which lymph drains, until it returns to the blood circulatory system where the thoracic duct (largest lymph vessel) joins the external jugular vein.

Hope this helps!
