Dataset link Resveratrol improves adipose insulin signaling and reduces the inflammatory response in adipose tissue of rhesus monkeys on a high-fat, high-sugar diet.

Experimental Protocol

Twenty-four adult (7-13 years old) male rhesus monkeys (Macaca mulatta) were housed individually in standard nonhuman primate caging on a 12h light/12h dark cycle, room temperature (78 +/- 2 degrees F), and humidity at 60 +/- 20%. One pairing was maintained throughout the study; all other monkeys had extensive visual, auditory, and olfactory but limited tactile contact with monkeys housed in the same room. Monkeys received 2 meals per day at estimated ad libitum levels throughout the study. Water was always available ad libitum. Monkeys were monitored minimally 3 times daily by trained animal care staff. During baseline assessments, all monkeys were maintained on a commercially available closed formula monkey chow. After baseline assessment, four male rhesus monkeys remained on the healthy standard diet (SD), 10 male rhesus monkeys were begun on a high fat/high sucrose (HFS) diet and 10 male rhesus monkeys were begun on a high fat/high sucrose (HFS) diet plus Resveratrol, 80mg/day. After one year of dietary intervention, the amount of resveratrol was increased to 480mg/day for one additional year. Tissues were then harvested for the array experiments.
