Abstract

© 2018 Universidad Nacional Mayor de San Marcos. All rights reserved. Changes in vaginal cytology during the ovarían cycle of 11 owl monkeys (Aotus nancymae and A. vociférans) were examined through analysis of vaginal smears with May grüwal - Giemsa stain, collected every second day during a ló day period. Serum progesterone levéis were determined by radioinmunoassay on four occasions over a 14 day period. Changes in the proportions ofepithelial cells related to ovarían function were observed in 8 of 10 females. Squamous cells quickly increased to 70 % while serum progesterone levéis were basal. Vaginal cytology from a pregnant female is also reported.
