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.

The vitreous humor is a clear, gel-like fluid that is 99% water with the remainder being a mixture of collagen, proteins, salts and sugars. The fluid occupies the space between the lens and in front of the retina at the back of the eye. Vitreous fluid has been shown to be a useful tool for understanding mediators of disease, including inflammatory molecules such as IL-6 and IL-8. Researchers are using vitreous within their drug discovery studies to look at more personalized treatment approaches based biomarkers identified within the fluid.
