ILAR Journal Volume 49(1): Noninvasive Bioimaging of Laboratory Animals at http://dels.nas.edu/ilar_n/ilarjournal/journal.shtml
December 21, 2007
The imaging modalities available for use with laboratory animals provide a means to explore the molecular mechanism of several diseases, minimize many of the limitations of static tissue-based techniques, and, most importantly, decrease the numbers of animals required. In fact, depending on the application, it is possible to reduce the number of animals required per study by as much as 80% to 90%. This feature is noteworthy because, perhaps unique to the ILAR Journal, there is an intentional effort to publish reviews that include considerations specifically relevant to animal care and use."
Click here for an NIH document on animal activists (current as of Feb. 2008):
A new Frequently Asked Question (FAQ) is now posted on the OLAW website at: http://grants.nih.gov/grants/olaw/faqs.htm#instresp_8. This FAQ provides guidance on the roles of the Institutional Official and the IACUC in developing plans to diminish the likelihood that their institution or its employees will become targets of animal activists.
Institutions are encouraged to review OLAW FAQs and make use of this resource. As necessary OLAW will update the site with new FAQs."
"Brochure Targets Investigators
OLAW has created a brochure intended to communicate to investigators their responsibilities under PHS Grants Policy and PHS Policy on Humane Care and Use of Laboratory Animals. What Investigators Need to Know About the Use of Animals provides a succinct resource for investigators to quickly grasp the main expectations and requirements when using animals in research supported by the PHS. The brochure may be accessed as a PDF at http://grants.nih.gov/grants/olaw/InvestigatorsNeed2Know.pdf (PDF - 4 MB) or in Word at http://grants.nih.gov/grants/olaw/InvestigatorsNeed2Know.doc (MS Word - 47 KB). OLAW will provide institutions with enough copies to disseminate to all of their investigators that work with animals. Send requests, along with the number of copies needed, to firstname.lastname@example.org, and please be sure to provide your complete mailing address."
