About this item
Although the rhesus and cynomolgus monkeys are the most commonly selected nonhuman primates for basic science and clinical medical investigations, there is no unified source for information currently available regarding the multiple aspects of the cytology and generation of the erythrocytes of the rhesus monkey Macaca mulatta and the cynomolgus monkey Macaca fascicularis. The rhesus monkey is the closest related subject to humans that is routinely available for investigation; the vital role of the rhesus monkey in AIDS research is well documented. A sound understanding of erythropoiesis in these macaques is necessary for their effective use in clinical investigation.
