Abstract : Much of past experimentation in the study of shock has been conducted in animal models other than the primate species. In recent years, it has become apparent that certain species differences exist between the subhuman primates and animals such as the canine and feline species, among others. The purpose of this publication is to gather all known published papers in shock conducted on subhuman primates since 1961. Since little work on this species has been reported prior to 1961, this volume represents a rather complete review of the subhuman primate shock literature. It should aid the investigator in designing new studies possibly more pertinent to the clinical patient and should hopefully assist him in selecting the appropriate species and methodologies most beneficial to the execution of his studies. It is hoped that the volume will be of valuable use to both the basic scientist and clinical investigator. (Author)
