Give monkeys access to booze 22 hours a day for more than a year and they’ll act very much like the primates we see in the mirror: Many drink responsibly, but about a third became drunks.

The research, published Dec. 17 in the journal Vaccine, may help scientists find new ways to improve the human body’s ability to respond to vaccines and infections.
