Addressing the Complex Impact of Immunosenescence: The Value of VaccinationOut of Stock
This What’s Hot details immunosenescence, including causes and impact, and its relationship to vaccine-preventable diseases. It also describes emerging research linking vaccine-preventable diseases and “imflammaging,” the increasingly prothrombotic state that comes with advancing age and leads to increased risk of events such as myocardial infarction, stroke, and venous thromboembolism following infection. Raising vaccination rates for influenza, pneumococcal, and shingles, consequently, can help lower rates of these events. The document addresses new formulations of vaccines specifically designed to overcome immunosenescence, which are showing exciting efficacy in older adults. Download the issue! It’s free for everyone.
