Animal Research

Animal research contributes to and has been instrumental in the development of important treatments for diseases that afflict human and animals. As current technologies have not been able yet to replicate the complex biological make-up of a human body, animal research remains vital in better understanding of human diseases to ensure the discovery of the novel treatments which are safe for human use.
