TY - JOUR. T1 - Effect of interaction of gender and energy intake on lean body mass and fat mass gain in infant baboons. AU - Lewis, D. S.. AU - Bertrand, H. E.. AU - Masoro, E. J.. AU - McGill, H. C.. AU - Carey, K. D.. AU - McMahan, C. A.. PY - 1984/1/1. Y1 - 1984/1/1. N2 - The hypothesis that energy intake influences differently the composition of mass gain during the preweaning period was tested in male and female baboons. Infant baboons were fed either a high (92 kcal/100 g formula) or a low (49 kcal/100 g formula) caloric formula from birth. Body mass, lean body mass and fat mass of each baboon were measured directly at weaning (18 weeks of age). Lean mass and fat mass gained from birth to 18 weeks was estimated by using body composition data from eight newborn baboons. Both energy intake and gender significantly influenced gain of total mass, lean mass and fat mass. There was a significant gender by diet interaction effect of the gain of fat mass. There was a significant gender by diet ...
A novel drug developed by Gilead Sciences and tested in an animal model at the Texas Biomedical Research Institute in San Antonio suppresses hepatitis B virus infection by stimulating the immune system and inducing loss of infected cells. In a study conducted at Texas Biomeds Southwest National Primate Research Center, researchers found that the immune modulator GS-9620, which targets a receptor on immune cells, reduced both the virus levels and the number of infected liver cells in chimpanzees chronically infected with hepatitis B virus (HBV). Chimpanzees are the only species other than humans that can be infected by HBV. Therefore, the results from this study were critical in moving the drug forward to human clinical trials which are now in progress. The new report, co-authored by scientists from Texas Biomed and Gilead Sciences, was published online on February 14, 2013 in Gastroenterology. Gilead researchers had previously demonstrated that the same therapy could induce a cure of hepatitis ...
The U.S. National Institutes of Healths (NIH) plan to transfer an estimated 186 chimpanzees from the Alamogordo Primate Facility (APF) in New Mexico to the Southwest National Primate Research Center in Texas, moving them from a holding facility to a lab where they will be more readily available for invasive research.. Before living at APF, these individuals endured years of research or use as "breeders" to make babies to be sent into research. New Mexico citizens and supporters nationwide; animal protection groups; actor Gene Hackman, who has a home in New Mexico; and New Mexico Governor Bill Richardson have all joined in urging the NIH to halt their transfer plans.. Recently, Governor Richardson met with officials at the NIH to urge them to keep the chimpanzees in New Mexico and to convert APF into a sanctuary. In his press release following this meeting, Governor Richardson stated, "While it appears they are holding steadfast to their position, I am holding steadfast to mine. I will continue ...

TY - JOUR. T1 - Novel anti-factor D monoclonal antibody inhibits complement and leukocyte activation in a baboon model of cardiopulmonary bypass. AU - Undar, Akif. AU - Eichstaedt, Harald C.. AU - Clubb, Fred J.. AU - Fung, Michael. AU - Lu, Meisheng. AU - Bigley, Joyce E.. AU - Vaughn, William K.. AU - Fraser, Charles D.. PY - 2002/8/14. Y1 - 2002/8/14. N2 - Background. Adverse outcomes after cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB) are often related to systemic inflammation triggered by complement and leukocyte activation. To determine how inhibition of the alternative complement pathway affects systemic inflammation and tissue injury, we studied a novel monoclonal antibody (Mab), anti-human factor D murine Mab 166-32, in baboons. Methods. Fourteen baboons (mean weight, 15 kg) underwent hypothermic CPB. The treatment group (n = 7) received a single injection of anti-factor D Mab 166-32 (5 mg/kg), and the control group (n = 7) was given saline solution. After initiation of CPB, all animals were subjected ...

Before widespread vaccination, a number of blood products and polyclonal immunoglobulins were used to treat human pertussis, some with positive, albeit poorly controlled, results (26). More recent preparations were developed on the presumption that PTx is responsible for the severe symptoms of disease, and therefore, preparations enriched in anti-PTx antibodies would mitigate the symptoms. However, this clinical strategy is limited by the expectation that only a fraction of PTx-specific antibodies in a polyclonal preparation would be neutralizing. In contrast, the monoclonal antibodies used in this study were selected specifically for their capacity to neutralize PTx, individually and synergistically. The initial feasibility data using murine and baboon models reported here support the concept of passive immunotherapy to neutralize PTxs pathological effects.. Previously, two polyclonal anti-PTx preparations elicited by immunization with inactivated PTx were assessed in controlled trials. One ...
The worlds first recipient of a transplanted baboon liver was reported improving and watching television in his room at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center today as animal-rights advocates protested outside the hospital.

Purpose : To test the hypothesis that spontaneous, long-term hyperglycemia in the baboon is associated with retinal lesions similar to human diabetic retinopathy. Methods : Twenty baboons (8M/12F, age 17.7 ± 4.1 yrs, 24.9 ± 9.5 kg) from the Southwest National Primate Center colony were identified from longitudinal health checks as being long-term hyperglycemic (HbA1c elevated for 8.8 ± 2.7 yrs). None of the animals had diet or drug induced hyperglycemia. Under ketamine sedation, each animal underwent fundus imaging of both eyes with a hand-held OCT device (Bioptigen Envisu R2210, Morrisville, NC). Analysis of the composite volume-intensity projection and each b-scan was performed manually offline (InVivoVue Reader, Bioptigen, Morrisville, NC) to identify retinal lesions. Results : Retinal lesions were present in nineteen of the twenty baboons examined. The b-scan appearance of the lesions was indicative of diffuse retinal edema, microaneurysms, epiretinal membranes, and neovasculatization ...

AIDS patient Jeff Getty made a bid for medical history last night as an elixir of purified baboon bone marrow flowed into his arm -- a gamble his doctors say could kill him or might provide a replacement for his rapidly failing immune system. In the works for more than two years, the last-ditch effort at a cross-species transplant to save Gettys life was delayed by safety reviews and Gettys episodes of AIDS-related illness. The treatment may not extend Gettys life and could be dangerous or even fatal if it provokes severe allergic reactions or infects him with a baboon virus. Will it start releasing cytokines, will it signal the rest of the immune system, the CD-4 cells and neutrophils, to go on the attack? Dr. Martin Stephens, vice president for animal research efforts at the humane society office in Washington, D.C., said the transplant seems more likely to harm than help Getty, and that baboons are highly intelligent, social and emotional animals (that) should not be killed for such
ISIS Sustainable Science Audit #2. August 2000. Xenotransplantation How Bad Science and Big Business Put the World at Risk from Viral Pandemics. Dr. Mae-Wan Ho. Director. Institute of Science in Society. PO Box 32097. London NW1 0XR. UK. Summary. Xenotransplantation - the transplant of animal organs into human beings - is a multi-billion dollar business venture built on the anticipated sale of patented techniques and organs, as well as drugs to overcome organ-rejection (1). It has received strong criticism and opposition from scientists warning of risks of new viruses crossing from animal organs to human subjects and from there to infect the population at large. Our regulators, however, are adopting a permissive attitude for clinical trials to go ahead. Scientific reports of virus crossing from pig to human cells (2), and of viral infections in humans subjects transplanted with baboon livers (3), are being ignored or dismissed, while inconclusive, widely faulted papers are taken as evidence that ...
It has been generally accepted that all animals undergo immunosenescence associated with a decline in the ability of older individuals to mount a protective immune response to Ags not previously encountered. This report demonstrating that older baboons are at least as good as young animals at generating a protective humoral response to LcrV challenges that age-old paradigm. We considered several factors that might have contributed to this surprising finding. First, it was possible, although highly unlikely, that the specific baboon ages chosen for the analysis were not appropriate. The young baboons were 2½-3 years old when first immunized, which approximates 7½-9 year old humans. As juveniles, they would have attained immunological maturity, but not sexual maturity. This age group was chosen based on extensive baboon data demonstrating that they would be immunologically competent (much like school-age children). For example, Attanasio and colleagues (29) demonstrated that the levels of serum ...

Later in the trip, at Cape of Good Hope south of Cape Town, I encountered all manner of signs along the road warning (not merely informing) people of the very real danger of feeding the baboons there. Predictably despite all of the warnings I encountered a car loaded with tourists (with an American accent - imagine that) stopped by the road and a woman in the back seat had her hand out of her window repeating "here monkey, here monkey...." to a large male sitting by the side of the road. I pulled over to watch and was quite pleased to see the baboon walk up, take the apple, bite the woman and then saunter back to the side of the road where he ate his mid-morning snack. Unfortunately the baboon was probably reported for having "attacked" the woman and more unfortunately the baboon would likely be destroyed because it was a hazard (even though it was just doing what baboons are supposed to do) at least it got some satisfaction out of teaching the tourist that the signs arent there to blow smoke ...

Baboons on South Africas Cape Peninsula come in frequent contact with humans. To determine potential health risks for both species, we screened 27 baboons from 5 troops for 10 infections. Most (56%) baboons had antibodies reactive or cross-reactive to human viruses. Spatial overlap between these species poses low but potential health risks.

Reproduction and mating systems of the genus Papio fall into two primary types. The first is polygynadrous or promiscuous mating in multi-male, multi-female troops, found in all species except P. hamadryas. The second is mating within single male social units, typically found in P. hamadryas but occasionally reported for P. anubis, P. cynocephalus, and P. ursinus. (Hrdy and Whitten, 1986; Melnick and Pearl, 1986; Nowak, 1999; Smuts, 1986a; Stammbach, 1986; Walters, 1986). Within multi-female, multi-male troops, females attract males during a prolonged estrus period through the swelling of their prominently colored ano-genital area. Estrus swellings typically last for many days, during which males may actively compete for access to the female. Papio anubis females are reported to have receptivity of 15 to 20 day during the middle portion of their estrous cycles. Papio ursinus females are receptive throughout their cycle, but copulations peak during the mid portion of the cycle. (Walters, ...
Elucidating the information content of vocal signals is fundamental to the understanding of animal communication. Acoustically distinct calls produced in specific contexts allow listeners to predict future events and choose adequate responses. However, the vocal repertoires of most terrestrial mammals consist of a limited number of call types that vary within and between categories. These "graded signaling systems" are thought to be rich in information, at the cost of increasing uncertainty regarding call categorization. In this study, patterns of acoustic variation in grunts of wild chacma baboons (Papio ursinus) were assessed in relation to different contexts, callers arousal, the presence of listeners, and individual identity. Although overall production specificity was low, and sensitive to the number of contexts under consideration, grunts given in three contexts could be statistically distinguished from each other. Contextual differences remained when controlling for caller arousal, ...

How an animal moves through its environment directly impacts its survival, reproduction, and thus biological fitness. A basic measure of describing how an individual (or group) travels through its environment is Day Path Length (DPL), i.e., the distance travelled in a 24-hour period. Updating a classic study by Dunbar (1992), we investigate the ecological determinants of mean DPL for 39 baboon (Papio spp.) troops across 20 different populations. We find that a measure of plant productivity, anthropogenic influence and local primate richness all have a significant and negative effect on DPL, whilst group size has a significant positive effect. These results are in accordance with previous work indicating baboons show variation in DPLs as a consequence of ecological dissimilarity across their range. We then explore DPLs and Movement Trajectories (MTs: the speed and tortuosity of travel) for yellow baboons (Papio cynocephalus) in the Issa Valley of western Tanzania. We find that Issa baboons travel ...

The vaginal microbiome is an important site of bacterial-mammalian symbiosis. This symbiosis is currently best characterized for humans, where lactobacilli dominate the microbial community and may help defend women against infectious disease. However, lactobacilli do not dominate the vaginal microbiota of any other mammal studied to date, raising key questions about the forces that shape the vaginal microbiome in non-human mammals. We used Illumina sequencing of the bacterial 16S rRNA gene to investigate variation in the taxonomic composition of the vaginal microbiota in 48 baboons (Papio cynocephalus), members of a well-studied wild population in Kenya. Similar to prior studies, we found that the baboon vaginal microbiota was not dominated by lactobacilli. Despite this difference, and similar to humans, reproductive state was the dominant predictor of baboon vaginal microbiota, with pregnancy, postpartum amenorrhea, and ovarian cycling explaining 18% of the variance in community composition.
There are pronounced matrilineal biases in behaviour in a number of primate taxa that are characterized by female philopatry and male dispersal, particularly cercopithecine primates, including all species of macaques (Macaca spp.), savannah baboons (Papio cynocephalus spp.) and vervet monkeys (Clorocebus aethiops). In these species, affiliative and cooperative behaviours are biased in favour of kin. For example, female baboons spend much of their time in close proximity to related females, and they groom kin at considerably higher rates than they groom unrelated individuals. Similarly, females reconcile conflicts with kin at higher rates than they reconcile conflicts with non-kin. Females in these species also intervene on behalf of close kin when they are involved in aggressive interactions more often than they intervene on behalf of more distantly related relatives or non-relatives. The most risky forms of intervention tend to be limited to close relatives. For detailed reviews of the kin ...
This study follows up on a previous paper by the same group from 2011 ("Is the baboon model appropriate for endometriosis studies?", F+S Sept 2011). In these articles the induction of endometriosis is demonstrated with impressive histologic, and laparoscopic images. The model holds great promise to study endometriotic lesions, including nodular lesions and their invasiveness. The caveat to the model is that the induction of endometriosis in the baboon is costly and time-consuming, as well as relatively inefficient (Induction of endometriosis in 20.7% in the 2011 study). It will also be interesting to see if the induction of endometriosis is confirmed in more detail on a molecular level. Nevertheless this model is a great addition to the experimental tools to study endometriosis.. ...

With the help of many colleagues and collaborators, the current study shows how well a ZIKV DNA vaccine called VRC5283 protects rhesus macaque offspring from viral infection. Although often unnoticed in adults, the virus can be particularly dangerous for fetuses. Infected mothers can be completely absent of symptoms but transmitting the virus to their fetus exposes them to potential health issues including: fetal death, microcephaly (abnormally small brain), and other abnormal developments. A combination of these symptoms is referred to as Congenital Zika Syndrome (CZS) and is most likely to develop when women become infected with Zika virus between the first and second trimester of pregnancy. Given the likelihood that women may not be aware of a pregnancy until many weeks post conception, researchers are working hard to develop a vaccine to protect all adolescent girls and women of child-bearing age ...

Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) and arachidonic acid (ARA) are major components of the cerebral cortex and visual system, where they play a critical role in neural development. We quantitatively mapped fatty acids in 26 regions of the four-week-old breastfed baboon CNS, and studied the influence of dietary DHA and ARA supplementation and prematurity on CNS DHA and ARA concentrations. Baboons were randomized into a breastfed (B) and four formula-fed groups: term, no DHA/ARA (T-); term, DHA/ARA supplemented (T+); preterm, no DHA/ARA (P-); preterm and DHA/ARA supplemented (P+). At four weeks adjusted age, brains were dissected and total fatty acids analyzed by gas chromatography and mass spectrometry. DHA and ARA are rich in many more structures than previously reported. They are most concentrated in structures local to the brain stem and diencephalon, particularly the basal ganglia, limbic regions, thalamus and midbrain, and comparatively lower in white matter. Dietary supplementation increased DHA in all

1. Peak blood flow acceleration measured in the common carotid artery was compared with peak flow acceleration measured in the ascending aorta of three baboons.. 2. The response to occlusion for 60 s of the circumflex branch or the anterior descending branch of the left coronary artery was investigated.. 3. Both accelerations decreased approximately to the same extent. Peak aortic flow velocity, stroke volume and cardiac output also decreased but to a smaller extent.. 4. It is concluded that peak aortic flow acceleration is a sensitive index of myocardial function during acute coronary occlusion in conscious primates and that peak carotid flow acceleration is an indirect measure of myocardial performance under the same conditions.. ...
