[Latin, A thing.] An object, a subject matter, or a status against which legal proceedings have been instituted.

For example, in a suit involving a captured ship, the seized vessel is the res, and proceedings of this nature are said to be in rem. Res, however, does not always refer to tangible Personal Property. In matrimonial actions, for example, the res is the marital status of the parties.

Results indicated higher phagocytic index of treated groups (at dose rate of 100 and 200 mg/kg body weight), which may be due to reticuloendothelial system stimulation (Neha and Mishra, 2011; Hajra et al., 2012).
[6] A low ferritin level is highly sensitive for the diagnosis of IDA, but ferritin is also an acutephase reactant showing an increase in the presence of infection or inflammation when iron is sequestered in reticuloendothelial system macrophages.
Intestinal iron absorption and iron recycling in reticuloendothelial cells are coordinately orchestrated in order to maintain iron levels in the circulation adequate for the needs of the various tissues and organs but insufficient to activate dangerous ROS production [13, 14].
Anemia of chronic disorders is the second most common anemia and it is due the disturbance in hemostatic mechanism of body iron .It is mostly present in patients with chronic diseases.Iron is available but its incorporation with globin is defective, thus iron that is entering the body is stored in the reticuloendothelial system16.

Patients with AIHA and warm RBC autoantibodies do not have the spontaneous agglutination of RBCs but can still have significant hemolysis as the RBCs coated with autoantibodies are removed by the reticuloendothelial system, which also presents with signs and symptoms of anemia and hemolysis.
The causes of anaemia in malaria include increased destruction of infected as well as uninfected RBCs by reticuloendothelial system, dyserythropoiesis in bone marrow, depressed reticulocytes response in acute malaria, hypersplenism and folate deficiency.13 In our study, 100 (50%) patients presented with anaemia that is comparable to study by Bashawri et al that reported anaemia in 59% patients of malaria.7 Anaemia was associated more with P.
