Arguments For and Against Animal Experiments. by princy goyal Examine the arguments in favour of and against animal experiments, and come to a conclusion on this issue. Over the recent years, a number of research and experiments being done on animals have increased significantly.
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 field studies in which animals are observed in their natural environments or habitats.
Ethical Science Improving Human Health Through Research Conducted Without Animal Use The Physicians Committee promotes alternatives to animal use in research, testing, and education.
Replace: Replacing, where possible, experiments using animals with alternative techniques such as cell culture, computer modelling or human volunteers instead of animals. R educe: Reducing the number of animals used, by improving experimental techniques and sharing information with other researchers so that the same experiments aren’t being done by many people.
This essay will examine the arguments for and against animal testing. On the one hand, the people who support these experiments say that we must do tests on animals. For instance, many famous lifesaving drugs were invented in this way, and animal experiments may help us to find more cures in the future.
Aim: To assess the preference and acceptance of the scientific alternatives to animals in medical experiments in research. Materials and Methods: This questionnaire based study was conducted in.
The experiments were conducted in concentration camps, and in most cases resulted in death, disfigurement, or permanent disability. Especially disturbing experiments included attempts to genetically manipulate twins; bone, muscle, and nerve transplantation; exposure to diseases and chemical gasses; sterilization, and anything else the infamous Nazi doctors could think up.
Manufacturers, of course, hope that animal tests will give an indication of how a given drug will affect humans. However, a full 70 to 75 percent of drugs approved by the Food and Drug Administration for clinical trials based on promising results in animal tests, ultimately prove unsafe or ineffective for humans. 2 Even limited clinical trials cannot reveal the full range of drug risks.
