Aging is accompanied by the decreased efficacy of the immune system. This has commonly been associated with reduced responses to vaccinations and increased mortality in the elderly. This process is known as immunosenescence, and it affects both innate and adaptive immunity. Age-related inflammation ("inflammaging) plays a determinant role in immunosenescence, and it therefore contributes to the pathogenesis of chronic diseases. The aim of this Special Issue is to decipher the role of inflammation and immunosenescence in age-related diseases. Original papers or reviews aiming at describing the interplay between immune dysfunction, inflammation, and immunosenescence in age-related diseases are welcome for this Special Issue.
