Viral and Mycoplasmal Infections of Laboratory Rodents: Effects on Biomedical Research contains the proceedings of a conference held at the National Institutes of Health on October 24-26, 1984. Organized into four parts, this book begins by elucidating the basic biology and pathogenetic mechanisms of viral and mycoplasmal infections. The presence of known and potential research complications due to these infections is also addressed. Lastly, the detection, control, and prevention of infection in rodent colonies are discussed.

In the 15 years since the last Institute of Laboratory Animal Resources report on the general management of rodents was published, important advances in biomedical research and increased public awareness have created a new environment for animal research. Modern technology-such as insertion of functional genes from other species into mice or rats, elimination of a single selected gene or function in mice, and the re-creation of elements of the human immune system in mice-has greatly expanded the usefulness of rodents in drug development and as models of human diseases. The technologic requirements of such advanced systems have led to improved understanding and implementation of environmental requirements for the care and use of rodents in research. The intent of this report is to provide current information to laboratory animal scientists (including both animal-care technicians and veterinarians), investigators, research technicians, and administrators on general elements of rodent care and use that should be considered both for optimal design and conduct of research and to meet current standards of care and use.

This two-volume set presents a comprehensive description of laboratory animal genetics, diseases, health monitoring, nutrition, and the environmental impact on animal testing. It considers the ethics of animal experimentation through a complete review of European and North American legislation on the topic. It discusses alternatives to animal experiments, including the use of isolated organs, cell cultures, and computer simulations. The book also examines general methods, including experimental design and statistical evaluation, non-surgical and surgical techniques, anesthesia, and post-mortem examinations. Reviews of animal models for studying diseases of different organ systems, infectious diseases, cancer, and toxicology are featured as well.
