ONPRC Animal Numbers

USDA Research Facility Annual Usage Summary Report Website

As a USDA-registered research facility, ONPRC submits an annual report to the USDA that documents the use of animals regulated by the AWA in its research programs. The form used to submit the report requires institutions to list the animals in five columns based on the use of the animals. The definitions for each column are below.

  • Column B: animals held by a facility but not used in research that year. These animals are considered to be in the breeding colony.
  • Column C: animals used in research procedures that did not require pain-relieving drugs.
  • Column D: animals used in research where procedures had the potential to involve discomfort or pain; therefore, analgesics were administered to alleviate any potential discomfort.
  • Column E: ONPRC does not conduct studies categorized as Column E with nonhuman primates. Column E includes animals used in research where analgesics would interfere with the scientific results or evaluation.
  • Column F: the total number of animals used in research (Column C + Column D + Column E).
