Evolution of the immune system in humans from infancy to old age

Abstract

This article reviews the development of the immune response through neonatal, infant and adult life, including pregnancy, ending with the decline in old age.

These changes are considered alongside the risks of different types of infection, autoimmune disease and malignancy.
