Inflamm aging. Inflammaging. global reduction in the ability of the elderly to cope with antigenic, chemical, physical and nutritional stressors concomitant progressive increase in proinflammatory markers agerelated pathologies share a common inflammatory pathogenesis. The diseasome ofIn this review we describe our current understanding of the effects immunosenescence has on the innate and adaptive arms of the mucosal immune system in the intestine. Current estimates suggest that by the year 2050 up to 40 of the UK population will be over 65 years old, bringing with it mucosal immune system aging

The mucosal immune system consists of organized and dispersed lymphoid tissues that are closely associated with mucosal epithelial surfaces, and mucosal immune responses generated in one location are transferred throughout the mucosal immune system by lymphocytes programmed to home to regional effector sites.

The mucosal immune system is established early in the first trimester of pregnancy. There is the possibility of abnormalities developing in utero if the pregnancy is exposed to adverse conditions, such as infection or chemical toxicity; having an effective immune system is important during this critical phase. Purpose of the Review Aging clearly impacts a wide array of systems, in particular the breadth of the immune system leading to immunosenescence, altered immunoactivation, and coincident mucosal immune system aging How does the aging process of the t cell activity. Antibodies of the systemic immune system function throughout the body, whereas antibodies of the secretory (mucosal) immune systemprimarily immunoglobulins of the IgA classare associated with bodily secretions and function to prevent pathogenic infection on epithelial surfaces.

Bacterial and viral infections of the gastrointestinal tract are more common in the elderly and represent a major cause of morbidity and mortality. The mucosal immune system provides the first line of defence against pathogens acquired by ingestion and inhalation, but its function is adversely affected in the elderly. This agingrelated decline in the immune function is termed immunosenescence mucosal immune system aging The mucosal immune system provides the first line of defence Keywords Aging Intestine Mucosal against pathogens acquired by ingestion and inhalation, immune system M cells IgA but its function is adversely affected in the elderly. Changes in the immune response are known to occur as a component of normal aging, and have been shown to affect disease course in multiple systems. I therefore hypothesized that ageassociated variations in systemic and mucosal expression of multiple cytokines in the IL10 mouse reflect underlying agerelated alterations in systemic and Introduction. The mucosal immune system of the gastrointestinal tract provides the first line of defence against pathogens acquired by ingestion. In addition to pathogenic organisms, the gastrointestinal tract is continuously exposed to large amounts of commensal microorganisms and food proteins. The intestinal mucosal immune response and aging. The elderly constitute the most rapidly growing subpopulation in many countries. In the United States, the number of individuals over 65 years of age is estimated in excess of 33 million and, at the current rate of expansion, this number will double by 2030.
