Obesity and Metabolic Syndrome
Obesity occurs spontaneously in captive adult NHPs, particularly in cynomolgus and rhesus macaques, with proven similarities to man in the distribution pattern and metabolism of adipose tissues making these species excellent models for the condition in humans. Moreover, the intra-abdominal adipocytes from the cynomolgus macaque are metabolically similar to human adipocytes.
