Social dominance in monkeys: dopamine D2 receptors and cocaine self-administration
PET imaging data demonstrate that alterations in an organism's environment can produce profound biological changes that have important behavioral associations, including vulnerability to cocaine addiction.
Inhibition of coronary artery atherosclerosis by 17-beta estradiol in ovariectomized monkeys. Lack of an effect of added progesterone.
It is concluded that physiologic estrogen replacement Therapy with or without added progesterone inhibits atherosclerosis progression in ovariectomized monkeys, which may explain why estrogen replacement therapy results in reduced risk of coronary heart disease in postmenopausal women.

Fight interference data from a group of free-ranging rhesus monkeys used to test hypotheses about the evolution and importance of altruism suggest that the survival value and thus evolution of interference behavior involves factors acting through both the social and genetic levels of organization.
Functional Hypothalamic Amenorrhea: An Endocrine Society Clinical Practice Guideline.
FHA is a form of chronic anovulation, not due to identifiable organic causes, but often associated with stress, weight loss, excessive exercise, or a combination thereof, and appropriate therapies are under debate and investigation.

Chronic Social Stress, Social Status, and Susceptibility to Upper Respiratory Infections in Nonhuman Primates
Although the social instability manipulation was associated with increased agonistic behavior as indicated by minor injuries and elevated norepinephrine responses to social reorganizations, the manipulation did not influence the probability of being infected by the virus.
