Determination of the hazard function for RBCs in healthy rhesus macaques. The left panel shows the experimentally determined time courses of biotinylated RBC survival for five healthy rhesus macaques (dots). The red line depicts the best fit time course for the biotinylated RBCs survival, which was obtained from the hazard function (green) in the panel on the right. This panel also exhibits the corresponding survival curve (blue) and the associated probability density function (red). From the probability density function, an average RBC lifespan of 98 ± 21 days was calculated
