  Animal Breed. & Facil., Scientific 

National Institute on Aging

The National Institute on Aging (NIA), recognizing that most

investigators have neither the facilities nor the fiscal resources

needed to develop and maintain colonies of aged animals, has made

provision of resources one of its highest priorities.  Currently

available resources include a cell repository, a nematode bank,

rodent colonies, and non human primate colonies.  This notice

announces the availability of two new NIA supported resources.

Calorically-Restricted Rodent Resource

Calorically-restricted rodents from six months to 30 months of age

are available.  These animals are individually caged and food intake

is restricted.  Mouse genotypes available are the inbred strains

C57BL/6 and DBA/2 and the hybrid stock of B6D2F1 (C57BL/6 x DBA/2).

Obesity, Diabetes, and Aging Nonhuman Primate Resource

The Obesity, Diabetes, and Aging Nonhuman Primate Resource of the

University of Maryland School of Medicine is being supported in part

by the National Institute on Aging to provide a service to

NIH-supported investigators.

A colony of 45 middle-aged and older rhesus monkeys is under study

longitudinally and specimens can be obtained for the examination of

questions related to obesity, diabetes, and aging processes.
