AGING CHANGES IN IMMUNITY
Advanced age is one indicator of likely immune dysfunction. The immune system becomes slower to respond. This increases your risk of getting sick. Flu shots or other vaccines may not work as well or protect you for as long as you expected. Your body may heal more slowly. There are fewer immune cells to bring about healing.
As the global population contains progressively more and more older individuals there is likelihood of an increased prevalence and incidence of infectious diseases due to common and emergent pathogens.
The resultant increase in mortality and morbidity would be matched by the risk of functional decline and disability.
Your immune system helps protect your body from harmful substances. Examples are bacteria, viruses, toxins, cancer cells, and blood or tissues from another person. The immune system makes cells and antibodies that destroy these harmful substances.
The aim of improving immune function in older individuals may be achieved through considering a therapeutic approach to rejuvenate, stimulate or support that immune system to perform in a more optimal manner.
