New Primate Report Launched

An expert report by members of Focus on Alternatives (FoA) giving a detailed analysis of the extent to which primate experiments have already been replaced by advanced non-animal alternatives.  It also describes how scientific progress in non-animal methods have the scope to replace primates in medical research.


A copy of the report will be sent to politicians in Brussels and Great Britain and to other stakeholders to ensure that as the revised Directive 86/609 is debated, the goal of replacing primate and other animal experiments is high on the political agenda.


A summary of the report is also available.


FoA brings together leading British non-governmental organisations which fund the development, or promote the acceptance, of methods that replace laboratory animals in research,education and testing. FoAs’ strategy is to work by educating, lobbying, facilitating access to information and by organising workshops on specific topics of concern. 


FoA contributors to this report are the Dr Hadwen Trust for Humane Research, Fund for the Replacement of Animals in Medical Experiments and St Andrew Animal Fund.
