SF407.P7N37 1968 c.l Nonhuman primates: standards and guidelines for the breeding, care, and management of laboratory animals; a report. Institute of Laboratory Animal Resources The Institute of Laboratory Animal Resources (ILAR), was founded in 1952 as a subsidiary of the National Academy of Sciences-National Research Council. Established as a coordinating agency, the Institute disseminates in- formation, surveys existing and required resources, establishes standards, and promotes education in the field of laboratory animal resources so that needed information and quality animal stock will be available to research workers. In this effort, ILAR works to enlighten the research animal scientist, veteri- narian, technician, and supplier by furnishing them with information and guidelines developed through the participation of authorities in the field.
These standards and guidelines are made available because of the increasing extent to which nonhuman primates (hereafter referred to as primates) are being used as laboratory animals. They apply to experimental colonies, to production colonies, and to facilities used by importers for maintaining and conditioning primates.
