1. Scientific Steering Committee ‘Statement’ section

12 July 2007

In its first statement, the SSC considers that the use of NHP will need to be decided on a case-by-case basis, taking into account:

However, it considers that for certain experiments there may be no alternatives to the use of non-human primates, for example, drugs and vaccines for diseases such as: AIDS, TSE 1, malaria, influenza.

ADI Response – duplication, redundant research:

Whilst so much research and testing is carried out in secret, and much unpublished, duplication or redundant research on non-human primate species is almost inevitable.
