Australian scientists find out why older people are more vulnerable to flu and other lung infections
The susceptibility of the elderly to lung infections is due to a decrease in the number of immune cells that store information about antigens that previously acted. This was proven by the results of a study by a team of Australian scientists.
“The study showed that a significant proportion of immune cells remain stable throughout life, but the number of CD8 + T memory cells (cells that store information about antigens that act first and form a secondary immune response) decreases.”
In mid-January, Rospotrebnadzor chief Anna Popova announced that there were no more flu patients in Russia. According to her, this had not happened in the past.
