Serum immunoglobulin levels (IgG, IgA and IgM) and intellectual performance were examined in a group of 14 elderly men (mean age 74.2) and 23 women (mean age 73.2) who reported that they were in good health. Significant negative Pearson product-moment correlations between performance and IgG and IgA emerged for men. Among women the relationship was not significant.
