    Two of the main justifications for the use of non‐human primates in biomedical research are analysed. These are the “least‐harm/greatest‐good” argument and the “capacity” argument. This paper argues that these are equally applicable when considering whether humans are appropriate subjects of biomedical research. The second edition of the gold standard text in the field, Nonhuman Primates in Biomedical Research provides a comprehensive, up-to-date review of the use of nonhuman primates in biomedical research. The Diseases volume provides thorough reviews of naturally occurring diseases of nonhuman primates, with a section on biomedical models reviewing.

    The 2e of the gold standard text in the field, Nonhuman Primates in Biomedical Research provides a comprehensive, up-to-date review of the use of nonhuman primates in biomedical research. The Diseases volume provides thorough reviews of naturally occurring diseases of nonhuman primates, with a section on biomedical models reviewing contemporary nonhuman . This chapter will concentrate on providing insight into suitable, and perhaps even ideal, nonhuman primate (NHP) models that can be used, or that have been used, to attempt to answer specific behaviorally oriented biomedical research questions.

    Non-human primates in biomedical research Summary More than one hundred thousand non-human primates are used for biomedical research annually worldwide. The United States, Europe and Japan are the main countries that use these primates. In the European Union, some ten thousand primates are used every year. Working Safely with Nonhuman Primates in Biomedical Research Working Safely with Nonhuman Primates in Biomedical Research is a training video that features the basics of occupational health and safety issues posed by working with research nonhuman primates and ways to minimize risks of exposure.

Fully revised and updated, providing researchers with the most comprehensive review of the use of nonhuman primates in biomedical research Addresses commonly used nonhuman primate biomedical models, providing researchers with species-specific information.

Non-human primates are used in a number of research fields, including neurological research that involves advanced brain responses which can be tracked in various ways, safety testing for novel medicines and new batches of vaccines, defence studies and studies that may benefit wild by:   This volume and its companion Nonhuman Primates in Biomedical Research: Biology and Management represent the most comprehensive publications of their type on nonhuman primates.

This volume addresses the diseases of nonhuman primates with an emphasis on the etiological factors, clinical signs, diagnostic pathology, therapy, and Book Edition: 1. Use of non-human primates in research Use of non-human primates in research Working group examining the scientific basis for recent, current and future use of non-human primates in biological and medical research.

Research with nonhuman primates, or NHPs – monkeys for the most part – has led to critical health advances that have saved or improved millions of human lives. The use of non-human animals in biomedical research and testing is a scientific endeavor and, as such, can and should be evaluated in light of the best science currently available.

But facts that have been accepted in all areas of science are routinely ignored or called into question by well-funded, vested interest groups, compromising the. Non-Human Primates in Laboratory Research Since the mid twentieth century, non-human primates (NHPs) have been widely used in laboratory research, mostly in biomedical research [ 1 ], and mostly in the cognitive sciences [ 2 ].

Primates as Pets. The use of non‐human primates in biomedical research is a contentious issue that raises serious ethical and practical concerns. In the EU, where regulations on their use. The use of nonhuman primates in biomedical research is documented by history's earliest scientists who undoubtedly saw in monkeys and apes the most obvious research.

Non-human primates are used in medical research because of their similarities to human beings. Results from research on non-human primates can often be applied to humans, and scientists have learned much about diseases, disorders, prevention and treatments for both humans and animals.

No person may carry out any research, testing, or teaching involving the use of a non-human hominid unless such use has first been approved by the Director-General and the research, testing, or teaching is carried out in accordance with any conditions imposed by the Director-General.

Non-human primates (NHPs) play a unique role in biomedical researches because of their close phylogenetic proximity to humans. Primates are increasingly used, while researchers continue to promote the development of novel non-human primate models to mimic a variety of human diseases and conditions.

The directive took effect on January 1, The directive permits the use of non-human primates if no other alternative methods are available.

Testing on non-human primates is permitted for basic and applied research, quality and safety testing of drugs, food and other products and research aimed on the preservation of the species. However, use of non-human primates needs to be supported by the science.

It has been two and half years since NIH announced its decision in June to significantly reduce the use of chimpanzees in agency-supported biomedical research and retain only a small population of chimpanzees for future biomedical research.The use of non-human primates in biomedical research is a contentious issue that raises serious ethical and practical concerns.

In the European Union, where regulations on their use are very tight, the number of non-human primates used in research has been in decline over the past decade. However, this decline has been paralleled by an increase in numbers used .The use of non-human primates continues to be one the most contentious areas of biological and medical research.

The publication of this independent report into the scientific basis for the past, current and future role of non-human primates in research is both a necessary and timely contribution to the debate.
