Intracellular neurofibrillary tangles is one of the most characteristic findings in Alzheimer's disease and senile dementia of Alzheimer type. In the present paper the authors show that intracellular accumulation of paired helical filaments is also a constant finding in the epithelial cells of the choroid plexus of aging persons. Like the neurofibrillary(More)
Intracellular inclusions with staining properties of amyloid are very common in the aging choroid plexus epithelial cells. In many ways these inclusions show similarities with the neurofibrillary tangles, found in cerebral cortical neurons in patients with Alzheimer's dementia. We have now designed a purification method for choroid plexus amyloid and(More)

An immunohistochemical investigation was carried out on 17 specimens of human choroid plexus obtained post mortem, 1 biopsy of normal choroid plexus including part of the lateral ventricle and 1 papilloma of the choroid plexus removed surgically. The material was fixed in formalin. Paraffin and cryostat sections were used. A polyclonal antiserum to(More)
Cytoplasmic fine fibrillar inclusions with properties of amyloid occur as neurofibrillary tangles in the brain and in the aging choroid plexus. In the present study we show that inclusions, similar but not identical to those in the choroid plexus, are common in the adrenal cortex of elderly persons. The inclusions consist of aggregates of parallel fine(More)
