Many Doctors Skeptical of Animal Experiments

laboratory ratA new survey shows that an overwhelming majority (82 percent) of British general practitioners are concerned that animal data can be misleading when applied to humans.

The survey was conducted by Europeans for Medical Advancement, a nonprofit research and educational institute dedicated to modernizing medical research.

Eighty-three percent of the survey respondents also say they would support an independent scientific evaluation of the efficacy of animal testing. As EMA director Ray Greek, M.D., says, “An independent, transparent and public evaluation of the scientific value of animal experimentation is long overdue.” The survey comes on the heels of a major article in the British Medical Journal this February on the growing concern over animal testing.
