Animal research has served a major role in the development of modern medicine and as clearly inferred from Dr. Gardner’s “Historical Perspective” and chapters focused on specific lentiviruses, much of today’s vast knowledge concerning the biology and pathogenesis of viral infections has been achieved by in vivo animal studies. Although a never-ending issue of political controversy, there is little doubt that progress in medicine and science are intimately connected to animal research.
