The controversy over the use of animals in research has led the interdisciplinary Stanford University Medical Center Committee on Ethics to analyze some of the issues associated with animal experimentation. This article, coauthored by the committee with four of its members, summarizes the committee's deliberations on three questions. First, it considers why animals are used in research, reviews past accomplishments, and predicts future therapeutic advances as a result of using animal models. Second, it surveys current thought on the moral status of animals. Finally, it discusses institutional policies, including those of Stanford University, that protect animal subjects. (KIE abstract)
