T Cell Immune Response Affected by Aging

May 12, 2014 1:00:18 PM / by Maria posted in aging, lymphocytes, Basic Research


T lymphocytes, as a component of the immune system, play a vital role in defending our body against intracellular pathogens, such as viruses, intracellular bacteria or parasites. In a previous blog we mentioned that cellular functions can abate with aging and cause the marked reduction in immune system responsiveness.  These changes have been associated with increased morbidity and mortality in the elderly population from infectious diseases[1].
