Additionally, with depression is substantial. In this paper, we review evidence depression can down-regulate the cellular immune response; as a suggesting that depression contributes to disease and death through consequence, processes such as prolonged infection and delayed immune dysregulation.

Conclusions: These function, and the health consequences of those changes. Results: direct and indirect processes pose the greatest health risks for older There is growing evidence that depression can directly stimulate the adults who already show age-related increases in proinflammatory production of proinflammatory cytokines that influence a spectrum cytokine production. Thus, aging interacts with depression to of conditions associated with aging, including cardiovascular enhance risks for morbidity and mortality.

In this paper, we consider how depression may contribute to morbidity and mortalitythrough immune dysregulation. We focus on a central immu-nological mechanism that serves as a gateway for a range of Morbidity, mortality, and aging: central immunological age-associated diseases, the dysregulation of proinflamma- tory cytokine production, particularly interleukin 6 (IL-6) [9].

Furthermore, distress also provokes substantial delays in wound healing [32,33], and enhancesthe risk for wound infection after injury [34].
Increased susceptibility to infectious disease and poorer recovery from infection are substantial and important prob-lems; in addition, however, they carry additional risks.

In fact, more globally, chronic inflammation hasbeen suggested as one key biological mechanism that mayfuel declines in physical function leading to frailty, disability, and, ultimately, death [12,39].
