    ..The prevention efforts are important and should focus even more, also among the oldest-old, on additional modifiable risk factors such as maintaining muscle strength. ..

    ..5 vs. 24.0 (p < 0.02,Mann–Whitney U-test) in the young controls and 76.0 vs. 70.0 (p < 0.01) in the nonagenarians). Thus, these data provide a new aspect to the CMV associated pathological processes. ..

    ..Thus, these data suggest that HERVs do not function as antigenic drivers of immunosenescence. On the contrary, expression of HERV-K(HML-2) env is associated with more youthful levels of B cells. ..
