Abstract

Non-human primates are invaluable models for the study of human diseases due to their close genetic, anatomical, and physiological similarities with our own species. They are extensively used in biomedical research aimed at elucidating the molecular mechanisms of complex chronic diseases, including but not limited to osteoporosis, obesity, type 2 diabetes, and atherosclerosis [1].
