The utilization of Animals in examination and training goes back to the period when people began to search for approaches to avoid and cure sicknesses. The vast majority of present day's medication revelations were conceivable as a result of the utilization of Animals in examination. The difficulty to proceed with creature tests in instruction and examination proceeds with fluctuated and befuddling rules. Be that as it may, the creature use and their taking care of change in every research… Expand


Ethical and Scientific Considerations Regarding Animal Testing and Research
While the “3 Rs” capture crucially important concepts, they do not adequately reflect the substantial developments in new knowledge about the cognitive and emotional capabilities of animals; an updated understanding of the harms inherent in animal research; and the changing cultural perspectives about the place of animals in society.

Various alternatives to animal testing were proposed to overcome the drawbacks associated with animal experiments and avoid the unethical procedures and an integrated application of these approaches would give an insight into minimum use of animals in scientific experiments. Expand
The ethics of animal research
Animal research has had a vital role in many scientific and medical advances of the past century and continues to aid the understanding of various diseases and the development of new medicines and treatments. Expand
Toxicology: The Basis for Development of Antidotes
The data from median lethal estimation serve as the basis for classification and labelling; provide initial information on the mode of toxic substance; help arrive at a dose of a new compound and help determine LD50 values that may indicate potential types of drug activity. Expand
Use of Invertebrate Animals as Model to Investigate Infectious Diseasesand Toxicity of New Drugs
New technologies based on alternative methods to animal testing should be in some mechanically more relevant cases to predict an effect on human health than traditional animal experiments. Expand
Evaluation of Standard Chemotherapy in the Guinea Pig Model of Tuberculosis
This study shows that conventional rifampin-isoniazid-pyrazinamide chemotherapy significantly decreased the numbers of the highly virulent Erdman K01 strain of Mycobacterium tuberculosis, with most of the bacilli being eliminated in a month. Expand
Clinical Trials for Patients with Fibromyalgia Syndrome
Fibromyalgia syndrome is a chronic condition that is dominated by widespread pain, but presents with a complex of symptoms that include fatigue, dysfunctional sleep and cognitive disruption that are associated with a heightened generalized sensitization to sensory input. Expand
Next Stage of Alternative Approaches to Animals Testing
Over 100 million animals, including mice, rats, frogs, dogs, cats, rabbits, hamsters, guinea pigs, monkeys, fish, and birds are used for research each year, of which 80% of animals were used for drug developments and toxicity test to evaluate novel drugs. Expand
