Figure 2

Percentage macaques surviving after oral inoculation brain material with or without (mock) bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE)–-inducing agent. Macaques exposed to 5 g (gray circles) or 16 g BSE (black circles) on 1 occasion and mock controls (open circles) are shown. The median incubation times for those given 16 g and 5 g BSE each was 4.7 years and 4.6 years, respectively. The difference was statistically not significant.
