BACKGROUND Bone loss, osteoarthritis (OA) and age-related changes in reproduction are some of the most apparent and troubling results of advancing age in the human population. The significance of these changes underscores the need for developing appropriate animal models to study aging of bone and the reproductive system. OBJECTIVE This review surveys the literature regarding the current state of nonhuman primates (NHP) as models for skeletal and reproductive aging in humans. RESULTS… CONTINUE READING
