"Current proposals to restrict non-human primate research in the EU could prevent... work which could have outcomes of immense benefit to human health."

Professor Andrew McMichael is the Director of Weatherall Institute of Molecular Medicine at the University of Oxford.  In regards to the discovery of an SIV microbicide with potential applications in the treatment of HIV, he said:

"The finding demonstrates how critically important studies in monkeys are to the understanding of HIV infection and development of strategies to  prevent infection. Current proposals to restrict non-human primate research in the EU could prevent this type of work which could have outcomes of immense benefit to human health."
