Description

The Nonhuman Primate in Drug Development and Safety Assessment is a valuable reference dedicated to compiling the latest research on nonhuman primate models in nonclinical safety assessment, regulatory toxicity testing and translational science. By covering important topics such as study planning and conduct, inter-species genetic drift, pathophysiology, animal welfare legislation, safety assessment of biologics and small molecules, immunotoxicology and much more, this book provides scientific and technical insights to help you safely and successfully use nonhuman primates in pharmaceutical toxicity testing. A comprehensive yet practical guide, this book is intended for new researchers or practicing toxicologists, toxicologic pathologists and pharmaceutical scientists working with nonhuman primates, as well as graduate students preparing for careers in this area.

Review quote

"... useful to toxicologists and pharmaceutical scientists with limited experience in NHP-related work or toxicologists and pharmaceutical researchers seeking a comprehensive desktop reference. Score: 96 - 4 Stars"--Doody's

"...a great reference for preclinical laboratories that use NHPs because it discusses the needs of that diverse team...useful and inclusive of the animal care and use regulations currently in place in North America and Europe."--JAVMA
