Table 1. Number of Aβ positive vesicles in AMD and control retinas

Number of A-beta positive vesicles in AMD and control retinas per 5 cm combined length of sections analyzed. COD: cause of death, PMI: post mortem interval, CA: cancer, ICB: intracranial bleed, RF: respiratory failure, CHF: congestive heart failure, PNEU: pneumonia, MI: myocardial infarction, COPD: chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, SURG: this eye was surgically removed for squamous cell tumor in the orbit, PE: pulmonary embolus, NA: not available. Small drusen were <63 μm, Large drusen were >125 μm
