Abstract

Thirteen days after capture, the blood serum of eight anesthetized female leaf-monkeys,Presbytis cristatus (3.86 kg of mean body weight), were analyzed for hematocrit (35.6±6.7 %), total protein (6.7±0.8 g/dl), albumin (3.61±0.77 g/dl), α-1 globulin (0.13±0.04 g/dl), α-2 globulin (0.73±0.18 g/dl), β globulin (0.87±0.27 g/dl), γ globulin (1.36±0.55 g/dl), A/G ratio (1.23±0.38), Na (161±6.14 mEq/l), K (5.61±0.74 mEq/l), LDH (575±257 IU/l), GOT (93±67 IU/l), GPT (34±33 IU/l), CPK (250±200 IU/l), ALP (613±633 IU/l), LAP (115±68 IU/l), γ-GTP (28±30 IU/l), TG (47±24 mg/dl), T-Cho (141±31 mg/dl), BUN (29.0±5.7 mg/dl), T-bil (0.21±0.07 mg/dl), and IP (3.4±2.0 mg/dl).
