Why Animal Experimentation Matters: The Use of Animals in Medical Research by Paul and a great selection of related books, art and collectibles available now at 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 ption: Around 50– million vertebrate animals .
Many people believe that animal research is done only to benefit humans. What you may not realize is that most of the same research benefits animals. As you receive vaccines against deadly diseases, so do they. As you take antibiotics for your sickness, so do they. In fact, people and animals share about 50 of the same diseases. The use of an animal for scientific research has been cited as a major reason for the dramatic decline in these animals’ population and those of other animals, such as rats, pigs, sharks, and dogs among others. In the US, animals are widely used in scientific research, especially in testing products consumed by humans, as well as the.
The use of animals in medical research has been a trend for decades. Animals have been an integral part in scientific experiments. They have also proved to be a trustworthy and effective model in the experimentation process, which is how many medicines and treatments for diseases were developed. Animals are used across fields, in many types of research: biomedical, aeronautic, automotive, military, agricultural, behavioral, and cognitive research, and in consumer product testing. It’s estimated that the National Institutes of Health spends some $ billion per year of taxpayer dollars on animal .

Cited by: In the first chapter, historians Kiple and Ornelas provide a comprehensive history of medical research dating back to Aristotle's observations of motion in animals; one of the earliest studies of animal physiology.
They provide detailed examples of animal research, e.g., discovery of cures for vitamin deficiency diseases by nutritionists/5(6).
The Welfare of Animals used in Research: Practice and Ethics gives a complete and balanced overview of the issues surrounding the use of animals in scientific research. The focus of the book is on the animal welfare implications and ethics of animals in use of animals in research book.
The use of animals in scientific biomedical research has raised controversial debates over the years. Animal rights extremist and anti- vivisectionist groups believe that animal experimentation is cruel and unnecessary, and they want immediate abolition on animal research regardless its benefits.
The use of animals in research, testing, and teaching creates unique occupational risks that need to be considered and managed for the safety of personnel. This chapter will review regulations and other resources that provide guidance on the management of risks associated with animal research and occupational health programs for personnel.
Animal experimentation has made a crucial contribution to many of the most important advances in modern medicine. The development of vaccines for deadly viruses like rabies and yellow fever depended upon animal research, and much of our basic knowledge about human health and physiology was discovered through the use of animals as well.
Inspite of these gains, animal rights activists have 1/5(1). natives, disseminating research and testing information, restricting animal use, count- ing the numbers and kinds of animals used, establishing a uniform policy for animal use within Federal agencies, and amending the Animal Welfare Act.
This book looks at the use of animals by people who carry out research into new and better medicines. All new medicines are studied in animals before researchers are permitted to test and use themFile Size: 1MB. The book includes examples of animal innovation in parrots, dogs, marine mammals, insects, and primates, exploring parallels from creative play in children.
The book defines creativity, differentiating it from play, and looks at evolutionary models and neurological constructs. No responsible scientist wants to use animals or cause them unnecessary suffering if it can be avoided, and therefore scientists accept controls on the use of animals in research.
More generally, the bioscience community accepts that animals should be used for research Cited by: The use of animals in scientific research has been a controversial issue for over a hundred years.
Research with animals has saved human lives, lessened human suffering, and advanced scientific. Inthe Animal Care Panel drafted a document that is now known as the Guide for the Care and Use of Laboratory Animals (National Research Council, a).
As discussed in Chapter 5, the Guide is meant to assist institutions in caring for and using laboratory animals in ways judged to be professionally and humanely appropriate. Book is in typical used-Good Condition. Will show signs of wear to cover and/or pages.
There may be underlining, highlighting, and or writing. May not include supplemental items (like discs, access codes, dust jacket, etc). Will be a good Reading copy. VICTIMS OF SCIENCE: USE OF ANIMALS IN RESEARCH By Richard D. Ryder - Hardcover. It is hard to imagine that the general public will read such a book, but hopefully the scientists and students who carry out animal based research will use Author: Judith K.
Blackshaw. 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. The use of animals in research is a controversial and emotionally charged issue.
Personal feelings regarding the use of animals in research vary widely. While many believe that the use of animals in research has been and continues to be essential, others want the practice stopped by cutting off funding or the passing of legislative restrictions.
Animals Used in Research. It is estimated that at least million animals are used every year in the multibillion dollar research industry that includes university, pharmaceutical and diagnostic laboratories, and many others. Researchers also found that young readers are more likely to attribute human behaviors and emotions to animals when exposed to books with anthropomorphized animals than books depicting animals realistically.
“Books that portray animals realistically lead to more learning and more accurate biological understanding,” says lead author Patricia. The use of animals in research has always been surrounded by ethical controversy. This book provides an overview of the central ethical issues focusing on the interconnectedness of science, law and ethics.
Animal research is a very controversial topic that has been generating heated arguments and debates all around the world over the past few decades. Recently, there appears to be an overwhelming growth in animal right groups all over the world. Most of these groups don't just support animal welfare, but they demand a ban on any kind of use of animals in research.
A vital resource for all those involved with the use of animals in research, and especially those studying for qualifications or licences in this field. Author Bios Kevin Dolan is the leading expert in laboratory animal law in the UK, and frequently lectures on the subject to a wide variety of audiences.The Interagency Research Animal Committee (IRAC), composed of repre- sentatives of federal agencies that use or regulate the use of animals in research, asked the NRC to conduct a study and produce a report that would provide guidance for protecting the health and safety of workers who care for and use research animals.In some cases, by using previously published studies, the use of animals can be totally avoided by avoiding unnecessary replication.
Modern imaging techniques in conjunction with new statistical analysis methods also allow reductions in the numbers of animals used, for example, by providing greater information per animal.
