    Without animal research, millions of dogs, cats, birds, and farm animals would be dead from more than diseases, including anthrax, distemper, rabies, feline leukemia, and canine parvo virus, according to Americans for Medical Progress (AMP), a nonprofit group that supports the responsible and humane use of animals in biomedical research. Animal research is a very controversial topic that has been generating heated arguments and debates all around the world over the past few decades. Recently, there appears to be an overwhelming growth in animal right groups all over the world. Most of these groups don't just support animal welfare, but they demand a ban on any kind of use of animals in research. About two-thirds of the dogs and most of the cats used in research come from animal shelters and pounds. However, for every dog or cat released for research, pounds and shelters have to kill about animals—at least 10 million dogs and cats every year—that do not find a home. 32 Some groups have played on public sentiments by implying that people 's pets will be used in experiments.

ABSTRACT This paper examines the difference between utilitarian and Kantian accounts of what it means to have moral standing and why non-human animals have it. It then considers the implications of these views for the question whether we have the right to do medical research on animals, especially research that is painful, invasive, or fatal.

Handbook, no. 1) by Laboratory Animals Centre and a great selection of related books, art and collectibles available now at   Drs. Greek and Greek release another fine book that will help turn the tide away from the ineffectual and barbaric pratice of animal research.

They discuss how cutting-edge science, be it computer models, nanotechnology, or in vitro research, trumps using beings that only superficially resemble humans/5(6). In the first chapter, historians Kiple and Ornelas provide a comprehensive history of medical research dating back to Aristotle's observations of motion in animals; one of the earliest studies of animal physiology.

They provide detailed examples of animal research, e.g., discovery of cures for vitamin deficiency diseases by nutritionists/5(6).

Animal experimentation has made a crucial contribution to many of the most important advances in modern medicine. The development of vaccines for deadly viruses like rabies and yellow fever depended upon animal research, and much of our basic knowledge about human health and physiology was discovered through the use of animals as Animals for medical research book.
