Comment: Cats in Scientific Procedures: Main Areas of Use in the UK and Some Causes for Concern
Samantha J. Gray
The Fund for the Replacement of Animals in Medical Experiments (FRAME) has recently established a project to study the use of cats in scientific procedures. The principal objectives of this study are to identify the areas of research in which cats are used, the justification for their use, and whether scientifically valid alternatives exist. This will be achieved by applying the Three Rs (reduction, refinement and replacement) concept.
