Pitts, IACUC Consultant George E. Sanders, University of Washington Allen W. Singer, Battelle Memorial Institute William J. White, Charles River Laboratories Although the reviewers listed above have provided many constructive comments and suggestions, they were not asked to endorse the conclusions or recommendations nor did they see the final draft of the report before its release. The review of this report was overseen by John Dowling, Harvard University, and John Vandenbergh, North Carolina State University. Appointed by the National Research Council, they were responsible for making certain that an independent examination of this report was carried out in accordance with institutional procedures and that all review comments were carefully considered. Responsibility for the final content of this report rests entirely with the authoring committee and the institution. Preface T he purpose of the Guide for the Care and Use of Laboratory Animals (the Guide), as expressed in the charge to the Committee for the Update of the Guide, is to assist institutions in caring for and using animals in ways judged to be scientifically, technically, and humanely appropriate. The Guide is also intended to assist investigators in fulfilling their obligation to plan and conduct animal experiments in accord with the highest scientific, humane, and ethical principles. Recommendations in the Guide are based on published data, scientific principles, expert opinion, and experience with methods and practices that have proved to be consistent with both high-quality research and humane animal care and use. These recommendations should be used as a foundation for the development of a comprehensive animal care and use program, recognizing that the concept and application of performance standards, in accordance with goals, outcomes, and considerations defined in the Guide, is essential to this process. The Guide is an internationally accepted primary reference on animal care and use, and its use is required in the United States by the Public Health Service Policy. It was first published in 1963, under the title Guide for Laboratory Animal Facilities and Care, and was revised in 1965, 1968, 1972, 1978, 1985, and 1996. More than 550,000 copies have been printed since its first publication. In 2006 an ad hoc committee appointed by the Institute for Laboratory Animal Research recommended that the Guide be updated. The Committee for the Update of the Guide for the Care and Use of Laboratory Animals was appointed in 2008 by the National Research Council; its 13 members xiii xi PREFACE included research scientists, veterinarians, and nonscientists representing biomedical ethics and the public’s interest in animal welfare. The Committee widely solicited written and oral comments on the update of the Guide from the scientific community and the general public; comments at open meetings (on September 26, 2008, in Washington, DC; October 16, 2008, in Irvine, California; and November 14, 2008, in Chicago) as well as written comments submitted to or requested by the Committee were considered. In addition, the Committee studied the materials submitted to NIH in response to its 2005 Request for Information (NOT-OD-06-011). All comments contributed substantially to this eighth edition of the Guide. In approaching its task, the Committee carried forward the balance between ethical and science-based practice that has always been the basis of the Guide, and fulfilled its role to provide an updated resource that enables the research community to proceed responsibly and in a self-regulatory manner with animal experimentation. The Guide is predicated on the understanding that the exercise of professional judgment both upholds the central notion of performance standards and obviates the need for more stringent regulations. Laboratory animal science is a rapidly evolving field and the Committee identified a number of areas in which current available scientific information is insufficient; additional objective information and assessment are needed to provide a scientific basis for recommendations in future editions of the Guide. Although pursuing these concepts was beyond this Committee’s charge, the following two topics merit further study: (1) space and housing needs of laboratory species and (2) the need and best meth ...

The Use of Animal Subjects in Behavioral and Biomedical Testing
The use of animal subjects in behavioral and biomedical testing, research and teaching is a
common practice in our societies. It contributes to essential advances in both medical and scientific
knowledge. The responsibility of any investigator using animal subjects should be to enhance the
well-being of these subjects.
The goal of Care and Use of Laboratory Animals guide is to foster humane care of animals
used as subjects during experiments. It provides information to help investigators promote the wellbeing of animals, development of biological knowledge and high quality of biomedical research
which is significant to either humans or animals. I think any vertebrate animal can be used for
laboratory testing, research or teaching. Ethical and feder...
