Naive Non-human Primate Whole Bone Marrow Aspirate (Cynomolgus)
Non-human Primates (NHP) are the closest phylogenic relatives to man. In biomedical research, they are often indispensable. Cynomolgus monkey is a well-known NHP species widely used in various types of research, including toxicological, pharmacological, metabolic, physiological and psychological studies. These monkeys are originated from different areas of Southeast Asia and are now purpose-bred in a limited number of breeding centers in different geographical locations. Generally, the life span of a Cynomolgus monkey is 25-30 years. 19-31 months old Cynomolgus monkeys are considered juveniles with no sexual dimorphism and those of 32-44 months are considered adolescent (not sexually mature). Their sexual maturity is achieved in four years of age for females and six years for males. Cynomolgus monkeys demonstrate age-related conditions which are commonly observed in humans, such as cardiovascular disease, Alzheimer's disease, bone loss, knee osteoarthritis, obesity, diabetes and diabetic complications. The Cynomolgus monkeys are also widely used as animal models for allo- or xeno-transplantation.
Bone marrow is the sponge-like tissue located in the median of the long bones. The primary function of bone marrow is hematopoiesis. The hematopoietic stem cells in the bone marrow is to provide erythrocytes, leukocytes, and platelets to the body everyday. Bone marrow is also a key component of the lymphatic system, producing the lymphocytes that support the body's immune system. Bone marrow cells can be used for many research purposes.
