Noted. While the statement " using chimpanzees in vaccine experiments is “largely unnecessary” because of emerging cell technology and other animal research models.and that most current biomedical research use of chimpanzees is not necessary, they also recognize that it is impossible to predict whether research on emerging or new diseases may necessitate chimpanzees in the future.This article is interesting because the question whether "only those raised in captivity should be used in laboratories, so as to minimize the impact of captures on jungle ecology." and that is a good debate to have.

No animal should be used in research for people. Time close animals research labs for good. Chimpanzees that have been born in research labs have the right to no longer be used, time for man to stop being so damned arrogant and leave the animals alone, There must be plenty of lab researchers that can take their place in the tests and they are people, better for the studies.

There's no possible justification for this.


Give special privileges to ''life without parole'' prisoners who volunteer.

I say we use convicted criminals for the vaccine research, not innocent monkeys!
