Figure 2

(a) Bodyweight (kg) for male and female monkeys at UW and at NIA grouped by age where male J/A include juvenile and adolescent onset animals, female J/A include juvenile and adult onset animals, and old include the advanced age onset animals. Digits shown in white within the boxes are the numbers of individual animals contributing to each data point, data are shown as mean±s.e. of the mean. (b) Comparison of bodyweight averages for monkeys from UW and NIA studies with records of the internet Primate Aging Database (iPAD). Average bodyweight for control and CR monkeys at both study locations were determined by age category including adult (11–13 years of age), late mid-age (18–20 years of age) and advanced age (25–27 years of age). Data are expressed as percent deviation from the iPAD average for females and males from each age category. Statistics related to this figure are provided in Supplementary Information, Supplementary Tables 2 and 3.
