  1. WHY ANIMAL RESEARCH?

    Many people have questions about animal testing ethics and the animal testing debate. We take our responsibility for the ethical treatment of animals in medical research very seriously. At Stanford, we emphasize that the humane care of laboratory animals is essential, both ethically and scientifically. Poor animal care is not good science.

  2. The Flaws and Human Harms of Animal Experimentation

    Introduction. Annually, more than 115 million animals are used worldwide in experimentation or to supply the biomedical industry. 1 Nonhuman animal (hereafter "animal") experimentation falls under two categories: basic (i.e., investigation of basic biology and human disease) and applied (i.e., drug research and development and toxicity and safety testing).

  3. Animal Experiments in Biomedical Research: A Historical Perspective

    Abstract. The use of non-human animals in biomedical research has given important contributions to the medical progress achieved in our day, but it has also been a cause of heated public, scientific and philosophical discussion for hundreds of years. This review, with a mainly European outlook, addresses the history of animal use in biomedical ...

  4. Ethical considerations regarding animal experimentation

    Introduction. Animal model-based research has been performed for a very long time. Ever since the 5 th century B.C., reports of experiments involving animals have been documented, but an increase in the frequency of their utilization has been observed since the 19 th century [].Most institutions for medical research around the world use non-human animals as experimental subjects [].

  5. Why Animal Research Is Necessary

    In an effort to reduce the use of animals in clinical research, in December 2022 the U.S. government passed legislation that allows drug manufacturers to submit testing data based on non-animal alternatives for biosimilar drugs — medicines that are highly similar to other, already approved ones.

  6. Research using animals: an overview

    There is overwhelming scientific consensus worldwide that some animals are still needed in order to make medical progress. Where animals are used in research projects, they are used as part of a range of scientific techniques. These might include human trials, computer modelling, cell culture, statistical techniques, and others.

  9. The Importance of Animal Testing in Biomedical Research

    Medical Progress and Biomedical Research The Nobel Laureates. Every Nobel Prize in Medicine awarded in the last three decades was dependent on data from animal models. Overall, 83% of the Nobel Prizes awarded for outstanding contributions to medicine have involved animal research since the program was founded in 1901, more than 100 years ago.

  10. The Importance of Animal Models in Biomedical Research: Current ...

    Animal research is considered a key element in advance of biomedical science. Although its use is controversial and raises ethical challenges, the contribution of animal models in medicine is essential for understanding the physiopathology and novel treatment alternatives for several animal and human diseases. Current pandemics' pathology, such as the 2019 Coronavirus disease, has been ...

  11. The Ethics of Animal Experimentation

    Many medical research institutions make use of non-human animals as test subjects. Animals may be subject to experimentation or modified into conditions useful for gaining knowledge about human disease or for testing potential human treatments. Because animals as distant from humans as mice and rats share many physiological and genetic similarities with humans, animal experimentation can be ...

  12. How Have Animals Contributed to Improving Human Health?

    Methods to combat infectious diseases have not been the only dividends of animal research. Surgical procedures, pain relievers, psychoactive drugs, medications for blood pressure, insulin, pacemakers, nutrition supplements, organ transplants, treatments for shock trauma and blood diseases—all have been developed and tested in animals before being used in humans. 14 In fact, according to the ...

  14. Medical breakthroughs underpinned by animal research

    Gene therapy aims to deliver healthy copies of these defective genes directly to the retina, to correct these genetic mistakes. MRC has been funding research into gene therapy for inherited eye diseases since 2004. Animal research in mice and dogs has been vital for establishing the necessary proof-of-concept for ocular gene therapy.

  15. Animal testing

    Animal testing, science, medicine, animal welfare, animal rights, ethics. Animal testing, also known as animal experimentation, animal research, and in vivo testing, is the use of non-human animals in experiments that seek to control the variables that affect the behavior or biological system under study. This approach can be contrasted with ...

  16. From the Archives: Animal Research

    To many people, animal research represents a doorway to the medical treatment of tomorrow. But to animal protectionists, and a growing number of other Americans, animal experimentation is a barbaric, outdated practice that—on the basis of a few notable past successes—has somehow retained its vestigial acceptability.

  17. The Fundamentals of Animal Testing in Clinical Research

    January 24, 2023 - While several different approaches are used during clinical research, traditional biomedical research involving animal testing to develop new treatments and drugs may be a strategy of the past after the FDA Modernization Act 2.0 was signed in December 2022. This act allows organizations to use scientifically rigorous, proven, non-animal testing methods, such as cell-based ...
