Spontaneous Pathology of the Laboratory Nonhuman Primate serves as a "go to" resource for all pathologists working on primates in safety assessment studies. In addition, it helps diagnostic veterinary pathologists rule out spontaneous non-clinical disease pathologies when assigning cause of death to species in zoological collections. Primate species included are rhesus, cynomolgus macaques and marmosets. Multi-authored chapters are arranged by organ system, thus providing the necessary information for continued research.

Pathologists often face a lack of suitable reference materials or historical data to determine if pathologic changes they are observing in monkeys are spontaneous or a consequence of other treatments or factors.

Key Features

  • Contains color illustrations that depict the most common lesions to augment descriptions
  • Covers descriptions that are compliant with the International Harmonization of Nomenclature and Diagnostic Criteria (INHAND) guidelines set forth by the Society of Toxicologic Pathology (STP)
  • Provides pathologists with common terms that are compliant with the FDA’s Standard for Exchange of Nonclinical Data (SEND) guidelines


Veterinary toxicological pathologists working in the field of safety assessment in pharmaceutical or agrochemical fields. The book could also serve as a reading list text for veterinarians studying for Pathology board exams – Diploma of the American College of Veterinary Pathology, Diploma of the European College of Veterinary Pathology, Diploma of the Japanese College of Veterinary Pathology, Diploma of the Japanese Society of Toxicological Pathology, Fellowship of the Royal College of Pathologists; Laboratory Animal Medicine Diploma exams (European and American); Undergraduate Veterinary exams – exotic/zoo animal medicine; and also serve as a reference text for Veterinarians working as Zoo clinicians
