Why do we need change?
Outdated animal research is failing both humans and animals. More than 92% of drugs that show promise in animal tests and proceed into human trials fail to get to clinic, mostly for reasons of poor efficacy and safety that animal testing failed to predict.
Even so, around three million animals continue to suffer in Britain’s laboratories every year.
Use of animals in medical research is unethical, costly and unjustifiable. Thankfully, pioneering technologies are already replacing animal testing and research.
That’s why Animal Free Research UK is funding scientists at the forefront of the scientific revolution. Together we’re replacing outdated, cruel animal testing with cutting-edge, human relevant technologies. And we’re calling on policy makers to mirror the changes taking place.
United, we can modernise medical research and bring animal experiments to an end in the UK once and for all.
Once we succeed, together we will have changed the world forever. For both animals and humans.
