Sarcopenia, the decline in skeletal muscle mass and function with age, contributes to increased frailty and decreased functional performance in the aging human population. The negative health consequences of muscle mass loss emphasize the need for development of a nonhuman primate model for the prevention or attenuation of sarcopenia. The age of onset for muscle mass loss in Rhesus macaques was determined using three datasets; (i) dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (DXA) data from a cross… CONTINUE READING
