Including legal fees, the paperwork, the housing, the food etc. (provided there is already a lab with biomedical lab equipment and space for the housing) for let's say the final testing phase of a novel drug over a duration of 3-5 months. what are the monthly and per monkey costs (for the questions sake let us say we have 10)? And how would the costs compare to a similiar study on mice? I'm just curious because I could not find any figures on the internet. EDIT: Provided I would get the get legal approvement, EDIT2: and it is based in the US. EDIT3: in California.
