Time to Reform Chemical Testing: Animals Out, Better Methods In
June 21, 2011

Current chemical-testing methods are miserable for animals, causing millions to suffer and die every year. In a new article in Toxicology in Vitro, PCRM toxicologists lay out how legislation can encourage the development of better methods that would help replace the use of animals. The pay-off would also mean more accurate test results for human health.

Lead author and PCRM toxicologist Kristie Sullivan, M.P.H., notes that the Safe Chemicals Act requires EPA to establish guidelines for smarter testing practices that limit animal testing. However, the bill still does not require companies to use nonanimal test methods in place of animal tests or share data to prevent duplicative testing.

Sullivan concludes that stronger legislation would reduce animal tests and hasten the development of more human-relevant, nonanimal test methods.
