Abstract The cellular and molecular basis of immune senescence is unclear. A number of mechanisms have been proposed. In this issue of the Journal of Clinical Immunology, some of the mechanisms for various immunologic abnormalities in aging are presented. In this article, various molecular steps of both death receptor and mitochondrial pathways of apoptosis in general are reviewed. In particular, the role of apoptosis in T-cell immune senescence is discussed.
