Abstract/OtherAbstract:
In 1996 the National Institute for Longevity Sciences (NILS) started an aging/aged farm (Aging Farm), an animal farm for producing aging/aged laboratory rodents on inbred strains, F344/N rats and C57BL/6 mice at its Experimental Animal Facility Wing, based on plans prepared by the Laboratory Animal Research Facilities (LARF). The NILS Aging Farm, being well established, began internal supply of aging/aged laboratory rodents in 1999 to promote both aging and longevity science. This report describes development of the NILS Aging Farm under NILS Aging Farm Guide and the effectiveness of the Guide.
