Because of the direct impact of chronic inflammation on a variety of age-associated diseases, the overall goal of Inflammaging is to educate the mainstream biomedical community about changes in the immune system that occur as a consequence of aging and contribute to age-associated diseases including cancer, metabolic diseases, multiple sclerosis, osteoporosis, periodontal diseases, and heart disease, to name a few.
For this special thematic issue of Immunological Investigations, we are seeking any updates or reports of interesting observations in humans, mice, or other model systems of aging where innate or adaptive immune system components are impacted resulting in changes in a disease phenotype.
As suggested by the title, this topic is intentionally broad in scope to encourage speculations into this area of study.
