New tool estimates your immune ‘age,’ predicts risk of disease

A new tool gauges the degree of chronic inflammation in a person’s body to determine their “immunological age;” this number hints at when and whether that person will become frail or develop heart disease later in life, scientists report.  

The tool, called iAge, uses a type of artificial intelligence (AI) called a deep neural network to analyze blood-borne markers of inflammation, according to the new study, published Monday (July 12) in the journal Nature Aging. These markers include proteins called cytokines, which deliver messages between immune cells and to other cells in the body. Using blood samples from 1,001 people, ages 8 to 96, the team uncovered patterns between these circulating inflammatory markers and various age-related conditions.
