The thickness of the intima-media complex (IMT) and the prevalence of plaque in the carotid artery were assessed. We found that the IMT increases linearly with age. 83). However, the prevalence of plaque showed a different trend. Plaque begins to appear after 50 years of age and then increases in prevalence linearly with the highest prevalence observed among nonagenarians. 6 % in octogenarians). The regression of plaque does not usually take place. We hypothesize that the nonagenarians with severe atherosclerosis may die before 100 years of age and that a low prevalence of clinically demonstrable atherosclerosis is critical to attain 100 years of age.

There are many other examples of protein misfolding and aggregation causing age-related diseases (Stefani 2004). While numerous cases, especially in neurodegenerative diseases, have been reported in which protein alterations produce age-related pathologies, it is not clear whether such changes also contribute to the functional decline of cells and tissues in physiological aging. It is possible that minor alterations of individual proteins cause undetected changes, yet result in significant physiological deterioration during aging.
