Intravenous glucose tolerance tests (IVGTT) were performed on 30 anesthetized, captive Sumatran (Pongo pygmaeus abeli), Bornean (P. p. pygmaeus), and hybrid (P. p. ablie x P. p. pygmaeus) orangutans, and fasted blood samples were taken from two additional juvenile orangutans in 11 U.S. zoos from 1989 to 1997. The age range of animals was 3.5 to 40.5 years. Plasma and serum samples were assayed for glucose and insulin concentrations. Glucose disappearance rate (KG), an index of glucose tolerance… Expand
Determination of hemoglobin A1c and fasting blood glucose reference intervals in captive chimpanzees (Pan troglodytes).
TLDR
The negligible HbA1c response to acute stress or recent food consumption suggests that Hb a1c is highly useful for evaluating glycemic control during treatment of diabetic chimpanzees and is more informative concerning overall glucose control than are FBG levels alone. Expand
FIBER DIGESTIBILITY BY THE ORANGUTAN (PONGO ABELII): IN VITRO AND IN VIVO
  • Debra A. Schmidt, M. Kerley, +5 authors W. Sadler
  • Biology, Medicine
  • Journal of zoo and wildlife medicine : official publication of the American Association of Zoo Veterinarians
  • 2005
TLDR
The results from both studies indicated that orangutans are capable of extensive fiber fermentation. Expand
Nutritional ecology of wild Bornean orangutans (Pongo pygmaeus wurmbii) in a peat swamp habitat: Effects of age, sex, and season
TLDR
Variation in nutrient intake among age‐sex classes and seasons over a 7‐year period at the Tuanan Orangutan Research Station in Central Kalimantan is examined to add to the growing body of literature suggesting that great variation in foraging strategies exists among species, populations, and age‐ sex classes and in response to periods of resource scarcity.

Effects of seasonal changes in dietary energy on body weight of captive Japanese macaques (Macaca fuscata).
TLDR
Seasonal changes in body weight were similar to those that occur in wild macaques: for both sexes, body weight was higher in spring and fall and lower in winter, which implied that reducing dietary intake in winter had a more severe effect on adults than on juveniles. Expand
A survey of diabetes prevalence in zoo-housed primates.
TLDR
It is clear diabetes should be considered prominently in decisions relating to diet, weight and activity levels in zoo-housed primates, as well as discussions surrounding animal health and welfare. Expand
Functional Anatomy and Adaptation of Male Gorillas (Gorilla gorilla gorilla) With Comparison to Male Orangutans (Pongo pygmaeus)
TLDR
It is concluded that anatomical similarities are due to common ancestry and that differences in postcranial anatomy reflect powerful selection for divergent locomotor adaptations, which further support the evolutionary conclusion that gorillas fall with chimpanzees and humans as part of the African hominoid radiation. Expand
Comparative Pathology of Aging Great Apes
TLDR
Among the apes, chimpanzees have been best studied in laboratory settings, and more comparative research is needed into the pathology of geriatric zoo-housed and wild apes. Expand
Sex hormones, insulin sensitivity, and diabetes mellitus.
TLDR
This brief review surveys present knowledge of the sex differences in body composition, insulin sensitivity, and risk for development of type 2 diabetes mellitus derived from studies in humans and nonhuman primates. Expand

Allele-specific recognition of the 3′ splice site of INS intron 1
TLDR
Findings reveal critical interactions underlying the allele-dependent INS expression and INS-mediated risk of T1D and suggest that the increased requirement for U2AF35 in higher primates may hinder thymic presentation of autoantigens encoded by transcripts with weak 3′ splice sites. Expand

Effects of ketamine sedation on glucose clearance, insulin secretion and counterregulatory hormone production in baboons (Papio hamadryas)
TLDR
Papio hamadryas appears to be a promising pre‐clinical model for the study of endocrine replacement therapy in insulin‐dependent diabetes, however, the data obtained must be interpreted with the knowledge that the anesthetic employed to allow for testing of the animals does have an effect on the parameters described in this report.

Ketamine-HCI as a Suitable Anesthetic for Endocrine, Metabolic, and Cardiovascular Studies in Macaca fascicularis Monkeys
TLDR
The studies indicate that ketamine-HCl does not perturb these particular hormonal systems in M. fascicularis monkeys, and ketamine anesthesia produced no significant changes in plasma insulin, glucose, or cortisol concentrations. Expand
Loss of the First Phase Insulin Response to Intravenous Glucose in Subjects with Persistent Impaired Glucose Tolerance
Loss of the first phase insulin response to intravenous glucose is one of the earliest detectable defects of beta cell dysfunction in Type 2 diabetes mellitus. Impaired glucose tolerance (IGT) isExpand
The Effects of Ketamine Anesthesia on Glucose Clearance in African Green Monkeys
TLDR
There were no significant differences in the glucose clearance rate, basal glucose and insulin concentrations, maximum insulin concentration, and area under the insulin response curve, among the three different conditions. Expand
Physiologic evaluation of factors controlling glucose tolerance in man: measurement of insulin sensitivity and beta-cell glucose sensitivity from the response to intravenous glucose.
TLDR
The feasibility of the minimal model technique to determine the etiology of impaired glucose tolerance is demonstrated and it is demonstrated that subjects (regardless of weight) could be segregated into good and lower tolerance by the product of second-phase beta-cell responsivity and insulin sensitivity. Expand
Restoration of early rise in plasma insulin levels improves the glucose tolerance of type 2 diabetic patients.
TLDR
Results show that an early rise in plasma insulin levels after the ingestion of a glucose load is associated with a significant improvement in glucose tolerance due to a prompter, though short-lived, suppression of endogenous glucose production, and restoration of a more physiologic profile of prandial plasma insulin profile represents a rational approach for treatment of type 2 diabetic patients.

Effects of physical and chemical restraint on intravenous glucose tolerance test in crested black macaques (Macaca nigra)
TLDR
A combination of midazolam with ketamine, compared to ketamine alone, did not cause detectable changes in the intravenous glucose tolerance tests; midazlam also reduced adverse reactions to ketamines and extended the duration of anesthesia. Expand
Assessment of glucoregulation in rhesus monkeys sedated with ketamine
TLDR
It is concluded that ketamine is a useful agent for pharmacological restraint of rhesus monkeys during studies of glucoregulation. Expand
Characteristics of spontaneous obesity in male rhesus monkeys
TLDR
It is concluded that some adult male rhesus monkeys develop obesity without obvious differences in eating behavior and that obese monkeys, like obese humans, are at risk for diabetes mellitus and its complications. Expand
Contribution of visceral fat mass to the insulin resistance of aging.
TLDR
The purpose of this study was to explore the association of IAF with age and insulin sensitivity (SI) after controlling for obesity and quantified total and subcutaneous abdominal fat and IAF at the umbilicus using a validated MRI scanning technique. Expand
