Many scientists argue that animal research should continue to be used because we have no replacement for it. Many of the scientific discoveries and medical miracles that allow us to live life comfortably only were possible through the use of animals in research. It is better to experiment on rats and rabbits then people, they argue. One of their strongest arguments is that medical research saves millions of lives each year. Because of testing on animals, they argue, medical workers around the world could find cures to HIV/AIDS, cancer, Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, and many other non-curable diseases as of the moment.

A balanced, accessible discussion of whether and on what grounds animal research can be ethically justified. An estimated million nonhuman vertebrates worldwide—including primates, dogs, cats, rabbits, hamsters, birds, rats, and mice—are bred, captured, or otherwise acquired every year for research purposes. Much of this research is seriously detrimental to the welfare of these animals. Human beings use animals for a wide variety of purposes, including research. The approximately million people in the United States keep about million dogs and cats as pets. More than 5 billion animals are killed in the United States each year as a source of food. Animals are used for.

The statement of task given to this Committee by NIH was specific to the use of animals from Class B dealers in scientific research, but this report addresses the use of random source dogs and cats in particular, per the intent of Congress (as discussed in the Summary and Chapter 1). The two types of animals, random source and Class B, are inextricably linked but also differ; Class B dealers.   How Looking to Animals Can Improve Human Medicine In a new book, UCLA cardiologist Barbara Natterson-Horowitz reminds us that humans are animals too.

"Why Animal Experimentation Matters" invites a wide audience to learn about animal research. Although it is a scholarly treatise on the use of animals for biomedical purposes, it is written in a manner that enables those unfamiliar with science and ethics to appreciate the issue/5(6).

Whether Or Not to Use Animals in Medical Research One pertinent question that faces the modern world is the use of animals for scientific experimentation.

Most ideas that have to do with nature especially animals have been formed in the midst of the controversy.

Every side of the argument has posed questions concerning man’s place with respect to these animals and the natural world. Animal experimentation has made a crucial contribution to many of the most important advances in modern medicine.

Inspite of these gains, animal rights activists have 1/5(1). Throughout history, scientists have been saving peoples lives by solving medical problems, developing new techniques and treatments and curing diseases by using animals in biomedical research.

Animal research has played a major role in the past one hundred years by improving the lives of humans and animals/5(6). Refinement and Reduction of Animals in Research (NC3Rs) in collaboration with the funding bodies listed on the back cover.

It clarifies our expectations with regard to responsibility in the use of animals in bioscience research. Research in the United Kingdom. Animal studies have been an essential component of every field of medical research and have been crucial for the acquisition of basic knowledge in biology.

In this chapter a few of the contributions of such studies in biomedical and behavioral research will be chronicled. These descriptions should be viewed within the context of the vast improvements in human health and understanding that have.

The AAMC affirms the responsibility of the academic medical community to ensure that the use of animals in laboratory research and medical education is judicious, responsible, humane, and that the care provided to these animals fully meets accreditation standards.

Several medical research institutions make use of animals as test subjects. They are subject to experimentation and altered into conditions useful for acquiring knowledge about diseases we humans continue to fight or testing for potential treatments, solutions or cures.

Secondly, even if we use the animals to do some researches, the animals may not die. Finally and most importantly, animals should be used for medical research if it can save people’s life.

Animals are the only resources for scientist to do medical research, because animals’ body system just like human beings in some ways. aspects of animal research. In “Use of Animals in Biomedical Research,” the American Medical Association addresses the issue of whether improving human health outweighs the suffering of animals in medical laboratories.

We have been conscious that conclusions about the use of animals involved in research, diverse as this is, must be seen in the wider context of the use of animals in food, in clothing, as pets and as working animals in farming and other occupations.

Science, however, is progressing rapidly in. Animals are used in scientific experiments because by using real-life models, scientists are able to gain more knowledge about the animal. The results of animal research can relate to other species of animals including humans. Human health has benefitted from the use of animals in scientific research.

The author analyzes the thesis statement which asserts that without the continued use of animal experiments in medical research humans would not be able to experience the StudentShare Our website is a unique platform where students can share their papers in a matter of giving an example of the work to be done.

It isn’t always easy to reconcile our love for animals with the need for the humane and responsible use of them in medical research. But it helps if we can distinguish the facts about this work from the myths that continue to hinder lifesaving biomedical research.

Introduction Throughout history, animals (refers to ‘non-human animals', excluding human) are widely used in different fields. However, the issue of using animals in medical research notably attract public attention because, to many people, it appears unnatural and cruel, even though the number of animals used for other purposes and the ill-effects exposed (eg.
