Method to Protect Mortality in Older Adults
04 Apr 2019
Our immune system plays a vital role in our lives as it defends our body from various disease causing pathogens. Similarly, the reaches of Israel Institute of Technology have developed a method to access the age of patient based on the response of their immune system. The weakening of immune system acts like a biological clock, this model helps to reduce diseases and mortality. This research was accomplished, where 135 healthy people’s immunity of different ages was checked yearly. The result obtained tells us that the human body undergoes slow and constant functional weakening of immune system. This research helps us to identify, characterise genes that affect immunisation age, and even identify lifestyle, habits and medications that effect age. Thus, this is a step to increase the life expectancy of human race.
