Use of Chimpanzees in Research. Chimpanzees have been used for decades in biomedical research and testing. Because they share more than 98% of their DNA with humans, they have been considered an “ideal” research subject, one that can be used to stand in for human subjects in experiments that would not be ethical to conduct on humans.
Chimpanzees, because of their close evolutionary relationship to humans, are attractive models for physiological, biomedical, and behavioral studies. For example, they have participated in such important developments in the category of “national needs” as the development of vaccines against hepatitis B and in early aerospace programs.
