Primate Health and Well-being at the California Primate Research Center
(UCD): Negligence, Stress, and Suffering
318 primates at the CPRC are listed as experimental deaths/necropsied per experimental protocol. 19% (60 were either inanated or severely thin); 17% (29) were listed as dehydrated. 36% (115) suffered from lymphadenopathy and 25% (79) suffered from splenomegaly. 17% (54) suffered from gastrointestinal tract diseases.
Other disease conditions in this population of primates included: pneumonia, meningitis, jaundice, endometriosis and lung mites. Again, it is very clear that these animals have been allowed to progress to an unacceptably severe endpoint for the pathological conditions which brought about their deaths.
