Further restrictions proposed on using chimpanzees for research

The federal government moved Tuesday to further protect chimpanzees, proposing to change the animals’ endangered status and increase oversight of their use in research. The plan represents the latest in a series of steps taken in the past two years to better safeguard the animals, one of man’s closest genetic cousins, and shield them from use in scientific research. Top medical institutions also are changing their stance toward the use of chimpanzees.
