Abstract

Preclinical studies –
is animal testing necessary?

The drug regulatory authorities require testing in animals, to be exact in at least two mammalian species, before the first-in-human trials can be approved. Common criticism is that the results from animal studies can merely be extrapolated to humans and are therefore an unnecessary cruelty. How valid are the results indeed, and what could be an alternative to animal testing? The following websites and documents comment on these issues.
