Plasma homocysteine concentrations in a population of rhesus monkeys (Macaca mulatta): reference ranges and accompanying plasma concentrations of folate and vitamin B12.

Abstract

The circulating level of homocysteine (Hcy) is recognized as a major independent risk factor for cardiovascular disease in humans. Nonhuman primates are being investigated to see whether they will be accurate models for Hcy indicators of cardiovascular dysfunction. Normal reference values are available in humans for Hcy as classified by age, gender, ethnic… (More)
