Nonhuman Primate Models of Menopause (Part 2)

Whether a true animal model of human menopause exists will be clear only after extensive comparative studies. Nonprimate species show substantial differences in reproductive and reproductive aging processes compared with humans, but some of these species, when ovariecto-mized, may provide appropriate models for postmenopausal health problems. Nonhuman primates (NHPs) hold great promise, because some species […]

Nonhuman Primate Models of Menopause (Part 1)
