Experimental Protocol

The experimental design of this pyrimethamine administration experiment with Macaca mulatta was approved by the Emory University Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee (IACUC) and is as follows. Five naive males (RCs13, RWr13, RUn13, RZe13 and RTi13) approximately 2 years of age were injected intravenously with a preparation of Anopheles dirus salivary gland material and then profiled for clinical and omic measurements over the course of a 100-day experiment. Samples were generated and analyzed as part of a multi-omic approach to understanding the effects that the anti-malarial drug pyrimethamine has on immune physiology in rhesus macaques (M. mulatta). There was no infection with Plasmodium parasites during this study. Whole blood and bone marrow RNA-Seq and plasma have been obtained for seven time-points before, during and after three rounds of drug administration. Samples are from either whole blood or bone marrow specimen types. 5 individuals were sampled for each specimen type, 7 times each over the 100 day experiment. 5 individuals * 2 specimen types * 7 time points = 70 samples. Biological samples (Whole Blood or Bone Marrow) were collected at 7 time points during the 100 days. These correspond to: Time Point 1 = Day 0 (Baseline Sampling Point) Time Point 2 = Day 21 Time Point 3 = Day 27 Time Point 4 = Day 52 Time Point 5 = Day 59 Time Point 6 = Day 90 Time Point 7 = Day 98 Pyrimethamine was administered on Days 21, 52, 53, 54, 90, 91, and 92.
