The measles virus is known to infect several species of monkeys. A group of 87 cynomolgus monkeys (Macaca fascicularis) was screened to observe whether there was an association between measles and the cold symptoms seen in most of the animals. Another 23 monkeys were vaccinated with attenuated measles vaccine and their antibody titres monitored to ascertain whether the vaccine would protect them against measles.
