Comment: The Use of Non-human Animals in Research: A Guide for Scientists

W.M.S. Russell

“It is a truism, though one that cannot too often be repeated, that we owe to animal experimentation many if not most of the benefits of modern medicine and countless advances in fundamental scientific knowledge”. This statement, from the first page of the 1959 book on humane experimental technique by the late Rex Burch and myself, is the subject of the first part of this new Royal Society booklet.
