Mechanisms of Immune Function Change With Age

In this video, Dr Joost van Neerven talks about the mechanisms of immune function and how they change as we get older.

For antiviral immunity, recognition of the virus by the innate and adaptive immune system is very important.

The adaptive immune system takes much longer to respond but builds a stronger memory to help prevent reinfection. Both respond less well when we age.
