Experiments on Animals Reach 17 Year High in UK

Science Needs a ‘Roadmap to Replacement’ Says Dr Hadwen Trust For Humane Research

Home Office statistics released today (21 July 2009) reveal that Britain’s animal experiments have reached a shocking 17 year high at 3.7 million experiments, a 14% rise since 2007. The Dr Hadwen Trust for Humane Research, the UK’s leading non-animal medical research charity, today reacted by saying that far greater progress to replace animals with alternatives should have been made but instead animal numbers are now as high as they were in the early 1990s.
