Example text

Use of nonhuman primates in the European Union was reported to be relatively stable during this period at about 10 000 per year (Medical Research Council, 2006). However, conspicuous growth occurred in a number of Asian countries, particularly the PRC, where there were already active monkey breeding programs. Such advantages as lower costs, more dependable access to animals, and a more relaxed regulatory environment almost naturally led to extending breeding programs to include CROs. The development and operation of such activities often involved the close cooperation of western firms with experience in managing and staffing CROs and catering to the drug discovery and testing needs of small biotechnology and pharmaceutical firms.

Four people were infected, one indirectly through fomite transmission, and two animal caretakers died. This provided yet another reminder of the seriousness of the B virus problem and its prevalence in rhesus monkeys. It also raised concerns about the potential activation of latent B virus infections in monkeys that might be infected, naturally or experimentally, with retroviruses causing immunodeficiency. Already looming as a potential problem, based on the discovery of SIV, was whether there would be enough monkeys to meet the needs of AIDS research.
