Researchers say they pose ""little threat to humans"" because they are shy. Would you be afraid?

"No, I`m pretty sure they were infected. I doubt they were shipped out from the rainforest pre-loaded with software, if you catch me."

Well, I caught something...

Anyone here had a cold-sore?

That`s Oral Herpes.

28 days later all over again! Better hope you`re in a coma in a locked room when it starts.

This is a link explaining why they are testing monkeys. I think I would rather see a monkey tested than a human for this one. But if your that concerned about the monkeys maybe you should volunteer for this research, I`m sure they will give you a proper burial.

This makes me pretty mad.
They retreat when approached eh?
I wonder why. I would sure as hell run away if I saw the bastards coming for me to try and give me AIDS or whatever.

STDs can still be transmitted via some other bodily fluids

Isn`t herpes a, you know, an STD?

So unless someone plans to have sex with that monkey, I don`t think we need to worry.

Well poo, keep me away from that monkey!

I actually go to school fairly close to this place. Thus, I`m somewhat less than delighted by the inevitable plague of STD ridden monkeys within spitting distance.

28 days later, America has a herpes epidemic on its hands (even if the movie took place in the UK...).

wow this post really hits close to home...i happen to be a researcher (why do you think i`m on iab all the time, hehe)...but seriously, the herpes virus is very close anatomically to the aids virus and this is why primates are used in testing...ie, aids and herpes don`t infect other animals they way they infect hominids like people or primates...its true, monkeys do not exhibit the same symptoms as humans upon infection, HOWEVER, they can easily infect a human by scratching and biting...the worst part is that these primates DO NOT like humans at all...and for very good reason (i don`t think i need to explain why)...anyway, they are EXTREMELY violent when any human even goes near their cage...we usually have to sedate them first using a tranquilizer before we can even get near them...i`m sure these monkeys that escaped want to get as far away from any human as possible...but, then again, therein lies the danger...

some primates carry these illness`s naturally. i coud be wrong but i dont think things like herpes hurts primates like it does us. tho it prolly should. OH wat if the monkeys in 28 days later actually has syphilis! swiss cheese brain could account for the "rage" never saw the movie just a random idea.

There were Herpes Monkeys in 28 days/weeks later? The trailers really never do give a clear summary of the movie...

They`re shy? Goddam monkeys in the movie "Outbreak" were shy. And you know what the result of that was? A really f*cking lame movie.

I think there`s a lesson here for all of us.
