A Virus May Help Immune System Fight Off Infection
According to UPI, researchers discovered a virus that can boost an aging immune system.
Conducted at the University of Arizona, researchers found that the cytomegalovirus helped mice fight off other infections.
Since the immune system declines as the body ages, an elderly body has more difficulty fighting off new infections.
According to Dr. Janko Nikolich-Zugich with the university's Center on Aging, CMV helped older mice use the best T-cells to fight off infections.
