Applying Results Of Experiments On Animals To Human Patients

EDM number 400 in 2016-17, proposed by Alan Meale on 05/09/2016.
Categorised under the topics of Animal experiments, Medicine and Science.

That this House notes the science-based campaign For Life On Earth which is critical of avoidable experiments on animals; further notes the new initiative Patients Campaigning For Cures, which opposes animal models on medical grounds; is alarmed that scientific studies reveal that the widespread claimed ability of animals to predict human responses to drugs and disease is demonstrably false; acknowledges that over 90 per cent of drugs which test well in animals harm or otherwise fail humans, and that ignoring this has delayed cures, including penicillin; notes that using animals to model humans also contradicts currently-accepted science, including evolutionary biology and genetics, which supports personalised medical care; further acknowledges the proclamation of the Concordat on Openness on Animal Research to develop communications with the media and public; and calls for thorough, properly moderated public scientific debate on the misleading and costly practice of trying to apply results from animal experiments to human patients.

This motion has been signed by a total of 58 MPs.
