              Chimpanzees in Biomedical and Behavioral Research: Assessing the Necessity
               

              Chimpanzees in Biomedical and Behavioral Research: Assessing the Necessity (Paperback)

              By Committee on the Use of Chimpanzees in Biomedical and Behavioral Research; on Health Sciences Policy, Board; on Life Sciences, Board; Division on Earth and Life Studies; Institute of Medicine

              For many years, experiments using chimpanzees have been instrumental in advancing scientific knowledge and have led to new medicines to prevent life-threatening and debilitating diseases. However, recent advances in alternate research tools have rendered chimpanzees largely unnec...essary as research subjects. The Institute of Medicine, in collaboration with the National Research Council, conducted an in-depth analysis of the scientific necessity for chimpanzees in NIH-funded biomedical and behavioral research. The committee concludes that while the chimpanzee has been a valuable animal model in the past, most current biomedical research use of chimpanzees is not necessary, though noted that it is impossible to predict whether research on emerging or new diseases may necessitate chimpanzees in the future --Publisher description.

              By Institute of Medicine; on Health Sciences Policy, Board; Forum on Medical and Public Health Preparedness for Catastrophic Events; Edited by Hougan, Matthew; Nadig, Lori

              During natural disasters, disease pandemics, terrorist attacks, and other public health emergencies, the health system must be prepared to accommodate a surge in the number of individuals seeking medical help. For the health community, a primary concern is how to provide care to ...individuals during such high demand, when the health system's resources are exhausted and there are more patients than the system can accommodate. The IOM's Forum on Medical and Public Health Preparedness for Catastrophic Events held a workshop June 10-11, 2009, to assess the capability of and tools available to federal, state, and local governments to respond to a medical surge. In addition, participants discussed strategies for the public and private sectors to improve preparedness for such a surge. The workshop brought together leaders in the medical and public health preparedness fields, including policy makers from federal agencies and state and local public health departments; providers from the health care community; and health care and hospital administrators. This document summarizes the workshop --Publisher's description.
