Animals in Research
JAMA. 1989 Jun 23/30; 261(24): 3602-3606.
This report of the Council on Scientific Affairs of the American Medical Association (AMA) provides brief descriptions of a wide range of medical advances developed with the help of research done on animals. The report contends that to accept the moral reasoning of the animal rights movement would entail a complete cessation of the use of animals in research. The AMA supports the use of animals for biomedical research while also supporting regulatory policies that protect animals from inappropriate use. Animal experimentation benefits veterinary medicine as well as human medicine. A realistic appraisal of research with animals must be considered in terms of benefits and costs to humans. Animal experimentation must be included in the research process if advancement in medical knowledge is to continue. (KIE abstract)
