As part of a long-term randomized trial of the effects of a 20-30% dietary restriction (DR) on adult rhesus macaques, female (N = 30) and male (N = 16) monkeys were assessed at baseline and 6, 12 and 18 months, following randomization to control (C) or dietary restricted (R) groups, for body composition by dual-energy x-ray absorptiometry. At baseline, there were no… CONTINUE READING
