It is thought that the burden of infection is an important determinant of pace of the age-related decline of the immune system. This is particularly the case for persistent viral infections such as that caused by herpesviruses. There is plenty of evidence for cytomegalovirus infection to be a cause of immune dysfunction in later life, for example. In this open access paper, the author argues that the interaction between viruses and immune system in the context of aging is very complex and presently poorly understood. It certainly seems clear that some viruses are far worse than others when it comes to the damage done to the immune system. Our body is in continuous contact with viruses and various defense mechanisms are used to prevent the […]
