The animals are packed into tiny crates with little to no food or water and are taken to filthy holding centers, where they await long and terrifying trips in the cargo holds of passenger airlines. Their destination: laboratories like Covance or Charles River Laboratories, laboratory dealers like Primate Products, Inc., or primate breeding.   Handbook of Primate Husbandry and Welfare covers all aspects of primate care and management both in the laboratory environment and in zoos. From the welfare and ethics of primate captivity through to housing and husbandry systems, environmental enrichment, nutritional requirements, breeding issues, primate diseases, and additional information on transportation and quarantine .

The Use of Nonhuman Primates in Laboratories in Great Britain One justification for the use of primates in biomedical research is their close evolutionary relationship to humans. Those parts of the brain associated with general awareness and appreciation of distress and suffering are more highly developed in primates than in lower mammals.

Before pharmaceuticals reach the consumer, their safety has to be tested on humans during clinical trials. Preliminary experiments on animals – often rats and dogs – are intended to protect the health of people taking part in these trials. Only few candidate pharmaceuticals are actually tested on non-human primates (NHPs).

Primates are needed to test certain drugs with potential effects on. Larry Carbone, a laboratory animal veterinarian, writes that, in his experience, IACUCs take their work very seriously regardless of the species involved, though the use of non-human primates always raises what he calls a "red flag of special concern".Description: Around 50– million vertebrate animals.

The Mo­ nographs on the Pathology of Laboratory Animals are de­ signed to facilitate communication among those involved in the safety testing of foods, drugs, and chemicals.

The complete set will cover all organ systems and is intended for use by pathologists, toxicologists, and others con­ cerned with evaluating toxicity and carcinogenicity Author: T. Jones. Alternatives to the use of non-human primates (NHPs) in research and testing do exist and can complement but not yet completely replace testing on these primates.

As far as possible, the number of animals used should be reduced, methodologies should be refined, and the use of animals should be replaced by alternative methods (3Rs principle).EXPERIMENTS on nonhuman primates in Britain, carried out largely before the animal experiments act ofwere of 'uneven quality' and were often poorly reported.

This is the finding of a survey.The capture of wild primates for use in breeding colonies and for experiments in some countries also causes very significant suffering the use of great apes has not been allowed since Chimpanzees are still used in the USA, although the number is declining.

Laboratory animals. We work hard to reduce the use and suffering of animals.
