Much has been written about the care of research animals. Yet little guidance has appeared on protecting the health and safety of the people who care for or use these animals. This book, an implementation handbook and companion to Guide For the Care and Use of Laboratory Animals, identifies principles for building a program and discusses the accountability of institutional leaders, managers, and employees for a program's success. It provides a detailed description of risksâ€"physical and chemical hazards, allergens and zoonoses, and hazards from experimentsâ€"which will serve as a continuing reference for the laboratory. The book offers specific recommendations for controlling risk through administrative procedures, facility design, engineering controls, and periodic evaluations. The volume focuses on the worker, with detailed discussions of work practices, the use of personal protective gear, and the development of an emergency response plan. This handbook will be invaluable to administrators, researchers, and employees in any animal research facility. It will also be of interest to personnel in zoos, animal shelters, and veterinary facilities.

¿Biosafety in Microbiological & Biomedical Labs.¿ quickly became the cornerstone of biosafety practice & policy upon first pub. in 1984. The info. is advisory in nature even though legislation & reg¿n., in some circumstances, have overtaken it & made compliance with the guidance mandatory. This rev. contains these add¿l. chap.: Occupat¿l. med. & immunization; Decontam. & sterilization; Lab. biosecurity & risk assess.; Biosafety Level 3 (Ag.) labs.; Agent summary state. for some ag. pathogens; & Biological toxins. Also, chapters on the principles & practices of biosafety & on risk assess. were expanded; all agent summary state. & append. were rev.; & efforts were made to harmonize recommend. with reg¿s. promulgated by other fed. agencies.

A respected resource for decades, the Guide for the Care and Use of Laboratory Animals has been revised by a committee of experts, based on input from scientists and the public. The Guide incorporates recent research on commonly used species, including farm animals, and includes extensive references. It is organized around major components of animal use: Institutional policies and responsibilities. The committee discusses areas that require policy attention: the role and function of the Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee, protocols for animal care and use, occupational health and safety, personnel qualifications, and other areas. Animal environment, husbandry, and management. The committee offers guidelines on how to design and run a management program, addressing environment, nutrition, sanitation, behavioral and social issues, genetics, nomenclature, and more. Veterinary care. The committee discusses animal procurement and transportation, disease and preventive medicine, and surgery. The Guide addresses pain recognition and relief and issues surrounding euthanasia. Physical plant. The committee identifies design and construction issues, providing guidelines for animal-room doors, drainage, noise control, surgery, and other areas. The Guide for the Care and Use of Laboratory Animals provides a framework for the judgments required in the management of animal facilities--a resource of proven value, now updated and expanded. This revision will be important to researchers, animal care technicians, facilities managers, administrators at research institutions, policymakers involved in research issues, and animal welfare advocates.

Now in its third edition, Clinical Laboratory Animal Medicine serves as an introductory resource for veterinarians, veterinary technicians, veterinary students, and laboratory staff on treatment and management of laboratory animals, including mice, rats, gerbils, hamsters, guinea pigs, chinchillas, rabbits, ferrets, and non-human primates. Each species chapter follows a simple and easy-to-use format, covering behavior, anatomic and physiological features, breeding and reproduction, husbandry, handling and restraint, blood collection, urine collection, drug administration, anesthesia, surgery, postoperative care, therapeutic agents, and diseases. Convenient tables supply essential biological and physiological data, blood values, and information on drug dosaging. Appendices include normal values or hematological data and serum biochemical data, as well as a listing of organizations in laboratory animal medicine. Clinical Laboratory Animal Medicine not only facilitates safe and humane treatment of animals in laboratory settings but also can serve as a practical guide for veterinary practitioners and technicians who are faced with many of these same species in daily practice.
