    Alternatives to the use of non-human primates (NHPs) in research and testing do exist and can complement but not yet completely replace testing on these primates. As far as possible, the number of animals used should be reduced, methodologies should be refined, and the use of animals should be replaced by alternative methods (3Rs principle). Experiments on non-human primates (NHPs) are highly controversial. Opinion polls consistently show that members of the public are particularly troubled by the practice (1–4), with many only sup-porting it with important caveats, or indeed oppos-ing it outright. A recent MORI poll in the UK found that only 16% of respondents supported the use of.

    The use of non-human primates continues to be one the most contentious areas of biological and medical research. The publication of this independent report into the scientific basis for the past, current and future role of non-human primates in research is both a necessary and timely contribution to the Size: 2MB. Well, mice are mammals so I'm assuming you mean studies on non-human primates. If so, the only thing that has ever worked in an NHP model is calorie restriction. That doesn't mean other things wouldn't work, just that it hasn't been done (to my knowledge).

    This book focuses on the three most important aspects of ageing research: nutrition, physical exercise and epigenetics. The contributors discuss ways that age-related epigenetic imprints such as DNA methylation and histone acetylation are modified by these two interventions. The emphasis on.   Experiments on non-human primates have brought about important advances in biology and es often play a crucial role in the safety testing of new drugs and in research aimed at understanding how the brain works and how to prevent infectious diseases in humans.. Worldwide, more than primates are used each year for biomedical animal experimentation: over half in .

Nonhuman primates share similar physiology and a close phylogenetic relationship to humans. The use of nonhuman primates in comparative experimental studies thus contributes to our knowledge about aging processes and translation of applications for improving health span in humans and other by: The present volume focuses on primate aging because human characteristics that evolved during their evolution are homologous with those of other primates.

Among the many behavioral impairments that develop in the elderly (i.e., disturbances in cognition, affect, psychomotor function, sleep, sexual function), loss of cognitive function is generally recognized as one of the most severe and consistent dysfunctions (Weinberg, ).Cited by: Calorie Restriction and Aging in Nonhuman Primates.
