Observations

One 26.2 year old animal was still alive in captivity [0671]. Amyloid-beta protein plaque deposits typical of Alzheimer's disease, but not neurofibrillary tangles, were observed in the brains of animals over 12 years of age, suggesting these animals may develop early Alzheimer's disease pathology [0824].
