The little one Primate study Laboratory on the collage of Washington used to be conceived in 1970 as a small examine Wlit basically for aid of 2 individual's pursuits in early improve­ ment of nonhuman primates. as a result of their study emphasis, a modest nursery used to be required to aid a small inhabitants of animals for particular experimental experiences.

METHODS Fifty-nine M. nemestrina placentas were obtained over a 2year period from14 Caesarean section and 45 vaginal deliveries in our laboratory. Thirty-six placentas were from timed matings, with a gestation range of 115-187 days. For vaginal deliveries the mothers were anesthetized with ketamine hydrochloride administered at a dosage of 10 mg/kg of body weight immediately after giving birth to facilitate the recovery of the placenta and the examination of the infant. The gross placental morphology was recorded as soon as possible after delivery.
