Almost every major medical advance in the last century was made possible by carefully regulated, humane animal research. Research with animals promises to be equally essential to progress in the next century. A set of regulations involving federal, state, institutional, and community review protects the welfare of animals used in research. Scientists involved with animal research understand they must use animals sensitively, appropriately, and humanely, using as few animals and as many alternative techniques as possible to achieve reliable results.
