Introducing FBR’s newest pieces on the critical and life-saving role of non-human primates in research

95% of the animals in medical research are rats and mice. Only half of 1 percent are primates, that’s a really tiny number.

So when a few people say “Let’s stop monkey testing,” a number of people nod in agreement without thinking twice. That concerns us.

The polio virus used to put a lot of kids in iron lungs. Today it’s used to cure the deadliest form of brain cancer.

We created this 28-page PDF to help you make an informed decision about the essential need for monkey research based on facts, reason and good will.

The Lifesaving Benefits of Primate Research visually illustrates how far medicine has come with the help of monkeys in research. It takes a look at past accomplishments. Highlights today’s treatments for deadly diseases. And explores some of the biggest medical challenges facing a new generation of researchers right now.

It complements our eye- and mind-opening infographic in support of monkey testing.

And it’s a consumer-friendly version of The Critical Role of Nonhuman Primates (NHPs) in Scientific and Medical Research, a new white paper collaboration between FBR and eight premier scientific groups: the American Academy of Neurology, the American College of Neuropsychopharmacology, the American Physiological Society, the American Society for Microbiology, the American Transplant Foundation, the Endocrine Society, the Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology and the Society for Neuroscience.
