Due to their strong similarities to humans across physiologic, developmental, behavioral, immunologic, and genetic levels, nonhuman primates are essential models for a wide spectrum of biomedical research. They can often serve to link the translational research between small animal models and humans.

Normal synovial fluid is clear, pale yellow, viscid, and does not clot. It is believed to have two main functions:  to aid in the nutrition of articular cartilage by serving to distribute nutritional substances, such as glucose, and to assist in the mechanical function of joints by lubrication of the articulating surfaces. In joint diseases, such as arthritis, the synovium of the joint is the primary place where inflammation occurs.
