By the cosinor method these authors not only demonstrated the persistence of a circadian cortisol rhythm in 15 presumably healthy subjects, 70-89 years of age, but also reported on a delay in acrophase in the older subjects.

It remains to be determined whether these and other age-related changes occur gradually or abruptly at some critical age and why some strains of animals exhibit them and others do not. F.
