Measuring hormonal profiles is important in monitoring stress, physical fitness, and reproductive status in primates. Noninvasive methods have been used to measure several steroid hormones in primates without causing them stress. However, few studies have used feces or urine to measure dehydroepiandrosterone sulfate (DHEAS), an important precursor of sex steroids that has been studied as a biomarker of aging, pregnancy, and stress in humans and nonhuman primates. We developed an enzyme… Expand
