Internal documents obtained from the UW indicate significant problems in areas of primate care. One primate (K93464) died (9/01) as a result of ingesting a set of latex gloves. Another primate (T93497) died (1/01) after being anesthetized for a blood draw, potentially as a result of anesthetic overdose. Another primate (#93169) died (7/00) of anesthetic overdose. Two primates (A00131 and 98026) in the care of investigator CC Tsai died with “total absence of body fat stores” and “total absence of subcutaneous fat.” Dehydration is also discussed in reference to primate #98026. Primate F93276 who died 6/01 is discussed as having “Malnutrition, chronic, severe” and “Dehydration, severe.”
