Stimulation of the immune system by blocking immunosuppressive checkpoints has shown spectacular impact in cancer therapy. There is increasing evidence that immunotherapy might elicit similar outcomes in non-oncological settings. This is the case, for example, of neurodegenerative disorders where blockade of immune checkpoints has beneficial effects.  More generally, aging is associated with a progressive unbalance in the composition and activity of the different components of the immune system.
