The Guide and rodent surgery
Posted by: admin | January 24, 2009 | 0 Comments
The Guide for the Care and Use of Laboratory Animals (The Guide) lists a multitude of references on the topic of surgery, including rodent surgery. While very useful, many of these references seem to have been forgotten and are not commonly utilized. Below are references from The Guide which deal with the topic of surgery and aseptic technique. Over the next few weeks, we will go down the list of the articles, choose a topic, provide short summaries of the articles on that topic, and search for recently published articles on the same topic. We invite you to provide us with your comments, and if you have or know of any references which we could add to this list, your input is welcomed and appreciated.
