Documents about APF chimpanzees tell us:
"3. Most of the chimpanzees have either been
infected with one or more chronic viruses, and even if they were
negative controls the chimpanzees have been subjected in the past
to many invasive procedures such as punch biopsies of the liver
and anesthetic events. These procedures are thought to contribute
to long-term prolems in some animals with liver and renal failure,
and various blood abnormalities."
