Age-related effects in T cell activation and proliferation.

Abstract

Age-associated thymic involution manifests its effects in a variety of ways that are related to a loss of T cell function. These include the appearance of a non-functional subset of T cells that increase in representation with age. Moreover there is a loss of T cell proliferative ability, a decline in the synthesis and release of interleukin-2 (IL-2), a… (More)
