Animal Use in Safety Testing of Chemicals and Drugs

  • Animal Testing can partly already be replaced  by animal free methods. Unfortunately, this is not possible for all necessary end points.
  • For each researcher using animals there is an obligation and duty regarding the refinement and reduction of animal testing, according to the actual technical and scientific progress
  • The work of each researcher in these fields must not be seen primarily under the aspect of economics, but high quality standards must be followed
