Activities in Japan and Other Asian Countries & Summary of the Satellite Session
Tsutomu Miki Kurosawa
In Japan, the main alternative activities are led by the Japanese Society of Alternatives to Animal Experiments (JSAAE). Therefore, the activities of the JSAAE are discussed as representative of Japanese activities. The JSAAE was established in 1982, as an academic society. Since then, the JSAAE has developed gradually, and it now has 338 memberships and 13 supporting organisations. The JSAAE annually publishes Alternatives to Animal Testing and Experimentation (AATEX) as its official journal, in English. For communication among members and the distribution of information, we regularly publish the newsletter of the JSAAE in Japanese.
