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 primate models of human diseases. Each chapter contains an extensive list of bibliographic references, photographs, and graphic illustrations to provide the reader with a thorough review of the subject.

Keith Mansfield is Associate Director for Resource and Collaborative Affairs and Chair, Division of Primate Resources, New England National Primate Research Center, Harvard Medical School, Harvard University, Southborough, US. His research focuses on primarily on the recognition of spontaneously occurring infectious diseases of nonhuman primates and their development into novel animal models to investigate disease pathogenesis. Suzette D. Tardif, Ph.D., is the Associate Director of Research at the Southwest National Primate Research Center. She is an adjunct faculty of The Barshop Institute. The Tardif laboratory's activities center on the development of the marmoset monkey as a disease model. Dr. Tardiff is a past-President of the American Society of Primatologists.
Reviews for Nonhuman Primates in Biomedical Research: Diseases
<i> This two-volume set builds on the earlier volumes, updates and expands the material to include a more international perspective on regulatory oversight, important model systems, and research areas where non-human primates play a pivotal role. High-resolution color images support the text. The first volume contains 19 contributions, beginning with a history and including discussion of laws and regulations and of non-human primate taxonomy, social behavior, reproduction and breeding, and housing, as well as clinical and surgical techniques, anesthesia, and safety. The second volume, on diseases, contains 18 contributions on the specifics of research pertaining to tuberculosis, parasitic diseases, malaria, atherosclerosis, diabetes and obesity, nervous system disorders, and drug and alcohol addiction, among other topics. --<b>Reference and Research Book News, August 2012, page 211</b></p></i>
