This has been a quiet newsgroup lately.  Is there anyone who would like
discuss aging and immune function?  I am particularly intrigued by the
work of Dr. Michael Irwin which suggests that increased sensitivity to CRH
with age causes an effect similar to stress-induced immunosuppression.
Also, the work of Dr. Ed Eylar suggesting that age-suppressed immune
function can be restored by N-acetyl-cysteine.  Any comments?
