Reference values of clinical chemistry and hematology parameters in rhesus monkeys (Macaca mulatta)
MetadataShow full item record
Background: Rhesus monkey models are valuable to the studies of human biology. Reference values for clinical chemistry and hematology parameters of rhesus monkeys are required for proper data interpretation. Methods: Whole blood was collected from 36 healthy Chinese rhesus monkeys (Macaca mulatta) of either sex, 3 to 5 yr old. Routine chemistry and hematology parameters, and some special coagulation parameters including thromboelastograph and activities of coagulation factors were tested. Results and conclusion: We presented here the baseline values of clinical chemistry and hematology parameters in normal Chinese rhesus monkeys. These data may provide valuable information for veterinarians and investigators using rhesus monkeys in experimental studies. © 2009 John Wiley and Sons A/S.

Comparison of single high-dose streptozotocin with partial pancreatectomy combined with low-dose streptozotocin for diabetes induction in rhesus monkeysJin, X.; Zeng, L.; He, S.; Chen, Younan; Tian, B.; Mai, G.; Yang, G.; Wei, L.; Zhang, Y.; Li, H.; Wang, L.; Qiao, C.; Cheng, J.; Lu, Y. (2010)Monkeys with insulin-dependent diabetes are important experimental models for islet xenotransplantation. However, with regard to diabetes induction, total pancreatectomy is a difficult operation with a high complication ...
