Relationships between peripheral blood mononuclear cells and age of rhesus macaques. Peripheral blood lymphocyte values were obtained as part of the CBC measurements from all animals in the study group. Flow cytometry was applied to measure NK cells (CD3-CD20-CD8+NKG2a+), T cells (CD3+CD20-) and B cells (CD3-CD20+) from a subset of 34 monkeys of the study group. Pearson correlation coefficients (r values) were calculated between cell number and age of the animals, and P < 0.05 was considered statistically significant.
