Time to Improve Standards in Animal Use

T
Today Universities were asked by the National Centre of Refinement, Reduction and Replacement of Animals in Research to pull their finger out and encourage their employers to perform and importantly report animal studies in a more rigorous fashion.


This is a movement that is coming, if not in its present format in another guise, so better to embrace now than face rejection later on


The failing in animal experiments into human drugs is a cause for concern. Poorly designed and executed studies is part of this. This error rate can be improved by reducing bias in the system to find and report positive effects when there aren’t any. 

Journals are likewise failing in their duty to enforce there own policies concerning reporting standards
